Elizabeth I Armada Portraits on show together for first time in 430 years

Three of the most famous surviving portraits of Queen Elizabeth I are to go on public display together for the first time in their 430-year history.

Created during the “height of her power”, the portraits were curated by an unknown artist to commemorate the failed attempt by the Spanish Armada to invade England in 1588.

Royal Museums Greenwich will showcase its own version of the Armada Portrait alongside the two other works: one from the National Portrait Gallery, the other from the private art collection at Woburn Abbey.

While copies of the portrait pattern have been made over the centuries, the three that will unite at the Queen’s House, Greenwich, south London are the only contemporary versions in existence.
