Example text

In mid-January 1559, Elizabeth's entry—in its unrecoverable form as it was publicly performed, as well as in the printed version that appeared just eight days after the entry—existed to embody the position of the most powerful London citizens through the allegorized figure of Elizabeth. Sponsors, Authors, and Meaning in the Entries of Elizabeth and James The Queen's Majesty's Passage derived its contemporary authority from the Court of Aldermen, the "keystone of the City's constitution" that consisted of an elected member from each of twenty-six city wards.

Other devices included a representation of Mary's and Philip's genealogies and an arch paid for by the grateful Hanseatic League. The overt expression of London's doubts about the marriage appeared in a pageant in the commercial center of Cheapside presenting Philip as Orpheus (a clear warning to one whose power might prove deadly to himself) and in a castle erected in Fleet Street where Veritas, like the figure of Henry VIII, held a book titled Verbum dei. 28 The entertainments presented for Elizabeth were no less pointed than those for her sister and her new husband.

The Passage grants her only two brief moments of self-representation: her prayer and her response to the city's gift of a purse of gold. The prayer, the single scene that she does not share with the merchants, takes place outside the city gates in front of the Tower and is carefully wrapped in the text's explanation that it forms one of two "principall sygnes" (the other is her acceptance of the city's Bible) that "she in all doinges doth shew herself most mindful of [God's] goodnes and mercie shewed unto her" (E4).
