Long Live the Queens

Stuart Patience has been commissioned by Harper Collins to illustrate ‘Long Live the Queens’ by Emma Marriott.

Stuart created 40 portraits of female monarchs drawn from across the globe, from the beginning of civilisation to the start of the First World War. The book chronicles the forgotten queens from across the globe – those who ruled in their own right, and those who were wives or mothers of reigning kings. All of whom wielded significant power.
