Queen Elizabeth I and Other Monarchs: Kalamazoo, May 8-11, 2014

updated: 
Sunday, July 14, 2013 - 3:02pm
Queen Elizabeth I Society

Our panel in 2014 will consider Elizabeth in relation to the other monarchs--those who preceded her, those who were her contemporaries, and perhaps even those who followed her, both in England and abroad. It is supposed that Elizabeth has famously compared herself to Richard II, and we know that she openly drew on the Tudor legacy in her speeches and political strategies. What elements of Elizabeth's queenship are derived from or are conceived in opposition to the ruling styles or politics embraced by certain medieval monarchs as well as Elizabeth's contemporaries abroad? What elements of her own rule are imitated or criticized by the later kings and queens? What can we glean from Elizabeth's diplomatic relationships with the other monarchs?
