Queen Elizabeth I

by Alison Rasmussen


This is Henry VIII's daughter by Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth. She had the longest reign (forty-four) of the Tudor children. She never married, probably because of the examples she saw in her sister's marriage, (Bloody) Mary to Phillip, King of Spain, and the way in which her father ruthlessly went through and disposed of his wives.
This is a RTW Tyler Spring doll from 2002. She has the original straight-arm body. I'm seriously thinking of upgrading her to a bendy-wrist body style. I'd also love some eye enhancements, but she was such a good deal. For now, I think she looks fine in Elizabeth Swann's court gown from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection.
