An Enviable Signature (on a declaration you’d rather not receive)

16 August, 2011

The Author greatly admires Queen Elizabeth I’s signature–what a triumphant ‘E’, lovely flourishes and the great £ sign ‘T’. 

Perhaps Mary Queen of Scots didn’t apprecaites it nearly as much: this extravegant caligraphy signed the warrent for Mary’s execution.

Fun fact: did you know that Mary Queen of Scots was 5 feet 11 inches? Hard to find a comfortable bed at that height!
