Description
A cartoon portrayal of Queen Elizabeth I of England arriving at Tilbury Fort in 1588 to spur on her troops in the war against Spain, when it was expected that England might face an invasion. It is when she delivered the speech with the words “I know I have the body of a weak, feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too…”. The artist - typically - has included a few Victorians in the background! From “Comic Sketches from English History for Children of Various Ages. With Descriptive Rhymes.” by Lieutenant-Colonel T.S. Seccombe, and coloured illustrations by Witherby & Co. Published by W.H. Allen & Co, London, in 1884.
