Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,0, University of Wuppertal, language: English, abstract: July 1593: A woman, dressed as it seems - although it is clearly not as glittering as the gowns around her - in her best gown enters the room where the English queen, Elizabeth I, is waiting for her. From an old weather-beaten face two vivid eyes observe the place: Queen Elizabeth in front of a fireside surrounded by her attendants. The English queen has seen better days as well as the pirate queen, who has just set foot in Greenwich Castle, London. Self confidently, she reaches out her hand to greet the other woman and helps herself to a chair next to the fireside. Who was this woman who greeted the queen of England as equal among equals? Many an author has tried to find out the true story about the 'meeting of the two queens' (Cook 2004, p.143) as some like to call it.
