She was popular...
Queen Elizabeth I was popular with her people because she was devoted to them. She enjoyed the fine arts very much. She attended Shakespeare's first performance of "A Midsummer's Night's Dream". She could speak 6 languages and translated poetry. She valued the arts.
Queen Elizabeth loved music and could play the lute (stringed instrument) . She also enjoyed dancing and watching plays. Artists also honored Elizabeth by painting her portrait. These portraits show that she was an early fashionista in many ways. She loved beautiful clothing and jewelry. Her clothes were often made with gold and silver. Unfortunately, her makeup, called "The Spirits of Saturn", was made by mixing white lead and vinegar, which may have impacted her health. This was a kind of skin bleaching to make her appear very pale. Being pale was considered beautiful.
