Video: Elizabeth I & Her People

Art Quarterly's Editor, Charlotte Mullins, takes a look at the National Portrait Gallery's new exhibition, Elizabeth I & Her People.

The exhibition features the key players of Elizabeth I's prosperous reign – from explorers and noblemen to butchers and bankers. In our video, Charlotte Mullins explains how portraiture helped the 'Virgin Queen' to cement her role as a powerful sovereign.

What's the link between poet John Donne and explorer Walter Raleigh? Take a look at our 'Court connections' infographic.

Elizabeth I & Her People is at National Portrait Gallery, London, until 5 Jan 2014. Get 50% off entry with the National Art Pass.
