Letter from Queen Elizabeth I

Title

Letter from Queen Elizabeth I

Description

The refutation of these forgeries by scholars was not difficult once reproductions were published: simply by comparing the forgeries to known examples of the same handwriting, the differences were clear. Compare this letter to the forged letter of Queen Elizabeth--the Virgin Queen was well-known for her excellent handwriting, while the Ireland forgeries were written by a much shakier hand.
