Queen Elizabeth and The Ditchley & Pregnancy Portraits

Also many Shakespeare scholars have pointed out that Queen Elizabeth haunts the deer-hunting scene in Act 4 Scene I of the play which is discussed in the following scene by Holofernes and Sir Nathaniel in absurd scholastic terms to the consternation of the constable Anthony, characters named after Sir Nathaniel and Anthony Bacon.

In fact the spectral presence of Queen Elizabeth haunts the whole of the play. In the recent Arden edition of Love‚Äôs Labour‚Äôs Lost its editor Professor Woudhuysen points to the lines ‚ÄėO, vile! Then, as she goes, what upward lies/The street should see as she walked overhead‚Äô (4:3:276-7), an allusion to the Ditchley portrait of Queen Elizabeth which as we know shares a similar cartouche with sonnet and identical calligraphy with the Pregnancy Portrait of Queen Elizabeth:

And in a footnote ‚ÄėTo some forlorn and naked hermitage‚Äô (5:2:789) delivered by the Princess of France-the character in whom Shakespeare scholars see various reflections in Queen Elizabeth, Professor Woudhuysen observes:

He might well have added that Bacon’s dramatic device written on behalf of the Earl of Essex Of Love and Self-Love performed before Queen Elizabeth that commences with The Hermit’s Speech in the Presence in which Bacon praises a life of study and contemplation is the same theme associated by Professor Woudhuysen with the Ditchely portrait twin of the Pregnancy Portrait of Queen Elizabeth.

Shakespeare himself says In Macbeth, Act 4 scene 1:

"Ditch-deliver'd by a drab, "

...to possibly suggest someone was symbolically still-birthed. That's included immediately after what appears to be very essential ingredients in the make up of a another aspect of this mystery:

Slivered in the moon’s eclipse,
Nose of Turk and Tartar’s lips,

Hobson in Hobson's Nose has an etymological meaning of "son of Robert". To get your copy of the book you must first go to the Great Turk's head.

The English Secret Service

Following the death of the spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham, the headquarters of the English Secret Service was removed to Essex House on the Strand. Here the Earl of Essex acted as kind of de facto Foreign Secretary with Francis and Anthony Bacon joint heads of foreign and domestic intelligence. The English Secret Service as it was then known eventually evolved into what we know today as British Intelligence and thus in modern parlance Francis and Anthony Bacon, were the equivalent joint heads of MI5 and MI6.

From their headquarters at Essex House, Francis and Anthony controlled a vast network of spies and intelligencers operating at home in England and all over the continent of Europe. Through its doors came officers of state and government, foreign ambassadors and diplomats, printers and publishers in the pay of Francis and Anthony Bacon, scholars, writers, poets and dramatists, as well as the artist Marcus Gheeraerts painter of the Ditchley and Pregnancy Portrait of Queen Elizabeth.

Marcus Gheeraerts

The painter Gheeraerts was evidently in the pay of the heads of the English Secret Service and in the Earl of Essex he had a major champion and patron and, of course, during this period he painted the Pregnancy Portrait of Queen Elizabeth.

There are at least three surviving paintings of the Earl of Essex by Marcus Gheeraerts the younger painted somewhere between 1596 and 1599.

 Essex by Gheeraerts

The prime version of the painting of the Earl of Essex by Gheeraerts now hanging at Woburn Abbey, assumes the air and posture of someone who believes he was born to royalty, qualities captured in the words of Professor Guy:

'Painted from life in the closing months of 1596, in the portrait Essex affects a regal bearing as if were himself a king, his head and shoulders leaning slightly forwards, and dressed in a white satin doublet and hose, sporting the insignia of the order of the garter and clutching his sword…The image is that of a man who felt himself born to greatness and at liberty to ignore Elizabeth’s commands.'

[John Guy, Elizabeth The Forgotten Years (London: Viking, 2016), p. 266]

Another Essex Painting by Gheeraerts

This air, posture and demeanour of royalty depicted in the previous portrait of Essex is further reflected in this slightly later painting of the earl by the same artist.

Elizabeth I by the 'Family' Artist Gheeraerts

Furthermore another not so well-known portrait of Queen Elizabeth was painted by Gheeraerts dated c.1597, possibly commissioned by Essex and Francis Bacon. For his three paintings of Essex, he must have before and after visited Essex House on a very regular basis for a number of years, and was no doubt in the secret confidence of Francis Bacon.

Actaeon, The Wisdom of the Ancients & Numerous Shakespeare Plays

Now let us return to the Pregnancy Portrait of Queen Elizabeth by Gheeraerts. 

The scholars Sir Roy Strong, Dr Altrocchi, David Shakespeare and Alison Sorbie, etc that have examined and discussed the pregnancy portrait have all briefly highlighted the link between the weeping stag and a passage in the Shakespeare play As You Like It and Ovid’s account of Actaeon’s metamorphosis into a stag. This however scarcely scrapes the surface as the links between Actaeon and several other Shakespeare plays is extensive and (not that any of the above mention it) Bacon interprets the myth of Actaeon and Pentheus: Or Curiosity in the Wisdom of the Ancients as a fable obliquely communicating the secrets of princes just like the secrets of the so-called Virgin Queen in the Pregnancy Portrait.

Queen Elizabeth, Actaeon & Venus & Adonis

The myth that pierces to the heart of Shakespeare’s relationship with Queen Elizabeth writes Charles Beauclerk is the tale of Actaeon, the young hunter who stumbled upon the virgin goddess Diana, goddess of the hunt, associated with fertility and childbirth, bathing nude with her nymphs. To punish Actaeon and prevent him from disclosing what he had seen she turned him into a stag. In fear Actaeon flees into the woods chased by his own hounds, who seeing him as a stag and failing to recognise who he really is, hunt him down and rip him to pieces. The first Shakespeare poem Venus and Adonis is Beauclerk observes almost a mirror image of the Actaeon myth where like Acteaon, Adonis is hunted to death.

The Metamorphosis

This motif of Actaeon’s metamorphosis into a stag was a recurring theme from the earliest Shakespeare plays written throughout the 1590s and beyond, during the period leading up to the date the Pregnancy Portrait of Queen Elizabeth was painted, with its own weeping stag that is central to one of the greatest secrets in Elizabethan history.

Diana and Actaeon

In the early Shakespeare play Titus Andronicus Tamora’s sons Demetrius and Chiron argue over Lavinia whom each desires. The evil Aaron proposes that they both rape her during the forthcoming royal hunt. It is here in the context of the hunt in the forest that Bacon directly raises the myth of Diana and Actaeon:

Titania & Diana

It is not difficult observes Professor Barkan to establish that Titania, Queen of the Fairies, is Shakespeare’s transformation of Diana as he borrows her name directly from Ovid’s account of Diana and Actaeon, which is also pointed out by the Arden, Oxford, and Cambridge editors of the play, and Professor Bate in his full length work on Ovid and Shakespeare. The range of its associations is expanded upon by Barkan:
