10 September 1533 – The Christening of Elizabeth I

Posted By on September 9, 2011

On this day in history, Wednesday 10th September 1533, the 3 day old Princess Elizabeth Tudor, daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, was christened at the Church of Observant Friars in Greenwich.

You can read all about her christening, including a contemporary description, in my article “Elizabeth I’s Christening – 10th September 1533” over at The Elizabeth Files.

Her birth may have initially been a disappointment for her parents but this was a christening fit for a prince and heir and was a big statement from Henry and Anne.
