Courtly Gifts

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

There are so many interesting topics I could choose to research about Queen Elizabeth I, I found it difficult to narrow it down.  I knew I wanted to cover a time when she was in power and also find a way  to explore relations between the Queen and her court.   One very specific way to research this relationship is to look at the gifts exchanged between them.  The Queen gave and received gifts on New Year’s, and I found manifest lists of these gifts.  These primary sources will help me research the relationship between Elizabeth and her court.
