I’ve just written a post over at The Elizabeth Files entitled “Is Anne Boleyn’s Portrait Actually Elizabeth I” regarding the similarities between the National Portrait Gallery portrait of Anne Boleyn and the Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger portrait of Elizabeth I in her old age.
Obviously, we know that Elizabeth I had many of her mother’s features – dark eyes, face shape etc. – but the weird thing about these portraits is that they’re not just similar, they actually transpose one on top of the other and if you watch the following video you can see the two women morph into each other! Find out more in my article over at the Elizabeth Files and enjoy the video below:-
