Tudor History Tours with the Tudor Society

On this day in history, 20th November 1591, Sir Christopher Hatton, Elizabeth I’s Lord Chancellor and favourite, died aged fifty-one at Ely Place in London.

Members can read more about Sir Christopher Hatton's life in Alex Taylor's excellent article on him - click here, and why not check out our other bios in our Tudor People section? - but here are some photos I took of an interesting panel at the National Portrait Gallery. You can read a description of it in the third photo.
