Elizabeth I by Bettes. Here we can clearly see the blackwork embroidery on the Queen's sleeves. The Tudor rose is prominent. When the heraldic Tudor rose appears on her ladies' clothing it is more than likely that the item has come from the Queen. Wearing an item of dress given to you by the Queen would signal that you stood high in her favour.

Bosworth by Chris Skidmore – Book of the Week 04/11/2013

The Battle of Bosworth has a legendary significance in British history. The last battle fought on English soil until the seventeenth century, and the last occasion that an English king would die on the battlefield, it was also the battle that brought an end to the dynasty of Plantagenet kings who had ruled since 1154, and heralded the birth of the Tudor dynasty.
