English: Queen Elizabeth I of England in her coronation robes, patterned with Tudor roses and trimmed with ermine. She wears her hair loose, as traditional for the coronation of a queen, perhaps also as a symbol of virginity. The painting, by an unknown artist, dates to the first decade of the seventeenth century (NPG gives c.1600) and is based on a lost original also by an unknown artist.

La peinture, d'un auteur inconnu, date de la première décennie du XVIIe siècle. C'est une copie d'un original lui aussi d'auteur inconnu, et perdu.
