Twitter Ye Not

A piece about how figures in history might have twittered or tweeted or whatever, had they the chance, inclination and technology.

Here, the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth I on 15 January 1559. Sir Walter Raleigh looks on, getting in a crafty tweet mid-bow.

I have been pretty accurate with the setting and costumes, although a contemporarily miniature marking the day shows Goode Queen Bess with her long red hair down. But I thought folks mightn't recognise it as her, without her later high-cut poodle perm!

I'm in love with all of your work. Their positions are just exquisite. So clever and funny.
