The producers at BIO.com review hundreds of photos of famous figures each week, from award-winning actors and popular singers, to headliners and scandal makers. While we're digging through these archives, we often come across amazing photos that we're just dying to share. So, without further ado, here's the one image that stands out to us this week:

Queen Elizabeth I seen above in her coronation robes in 1559. Four hundred and fifty four years ago, Queen Elizabeth I was crowned Queen of England at Westminster Abbey on January 15th, 1559. Here we see the Queen with her orb and scepter and a cloth of gold which was previously worn by Mary I. This particular portrait is just one of about 1,300 images of Queen Elizabeth I in the National Portrait Gallery in London. The gallery recently received its very first portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, which has been met with some varying opinions. But if she's anything like Elizabeth I, the Duchess will have many more opportunities to find that perfect portrait.
