Okay so I am not an art historian but isn’t it unusual to see portraits from this era (1600s) with the hair flowing so free and undone? Usually it is in a snood (?) or ye olde beehive thing i think. So i immediately think LEO!
And voila, she is – or was – Elizabeth Stuart was born 19 August 1596 & yes, what a mane.
Renowned for her beauty, grace & vitality, she corresponded with the philosopher Descartes and Shakespeare apparently wrote The Tempest for her as a wedding gift. She has inspired several poems & appears in quite a few novels, as a ghost and/or with mad peeps thinking that they are her.
Every bit the Leo luvvie…
The countries retaining a monarchy should have laws that only Leos can be Kings of Queens because they are so terribly good at it. They suit crowns and gowns. They love formal occasions. They can transcend politics. They love performances and speeches. They have manners and can usually be relied upon to say the right thing. eg; Princess Anne. Princess Margaret. The late Queen Mother. Princess Beatrice. All Leos.
