Than fo­lowed four ryche charyottes with ladyes of honour: [Page]after them folowed .xxx. ladyes & gentylwomen [...] garnisshed / and so ye seruyng men after thē. And as she was departed from ye towre / a meruaylous great shot of gonnes was there fyred & shot. So this moste noble cōpany passed tyll her grace came to [...]anchurch where was a pagent fayre & semly / wt certayne chyl­dren which saluted her grace with great honour and prayse after a goodly fassyon: and so passed forthe to Grase churche / where was a ryght costly pagent of Apollo with the nyne muses amonge ye mountayns / syttyng on ye mount of Pernasus / and euery of them hauynge their instrumentes & apparayle acordyng to the discryption of poetes / and namely of Virgyll / with many goodly verses to her great prayse and ho­nour. And so she passed forth through gracyous strete vnto leaden hall / where was buylded a sumptuous and a costly pagent in maner of a castell wherin was fassyoned an heuēly roufe / and vnder it vpon a grene was a roote or a stocke / wherout sprōge a multytude of whyte roses & reed curyously wrought / so from the heuenly roufe discended a whyte faucon / and lyghted vpon ye said stocke & roote / and incontynent discended an angell wt goodly armony / hauynge a close crowne bytwene his hādes / & set it on the faucons heed: & on the said flour sate saynt Anne in ye hyest place / on that one syde her progeny wt scripture / that is to wete / the thre Marys wt their issue / yt is to vnderstande: Mary the mother of Christ / Mary Solome ye mother of ze­bedee / with the two chyldren of thē / also Mary Cleo­phe with her husbande Alphee / with their four chyl­dren on ye othersyde / with other poetycall verses sayd and songe / wt a balade in englis [...]he to her great prayse [Page] [...] to al her progeny and.

And after his preamble fynysshed / euery lady pertyculer spake great honour and hye prayse of the quenes grace: And so she passed forth with all her nobles tyll she came in chepe / and at the great condyt was made a costly foūtayne / wherout ranne whyte wyne / claret / & reed great plenty all that after noone: and ther was great melody wt speches. And so passed forthe through chepe to the standarde / whiche was costly & sumptuously garnisshed wich golde & asure / with armes & stories / wher was great armony and melody: and so passed she forth by the crosse in chepe / whiche was newe garnisshed / and so through chepe towarde the lesser condyt. And in the mydwaye by­twene / the recorder of London receyued her afore the aldermen / with great reuerence & honour salutynge her grace / with a louyng & humble preposycion pre­sentynge her grace with a ryche and costly purse of golde / and in it a thousande marke in golde coyne / gy­uen vnto her as a free gyfte of honour: to whom she gaue great thankes bothe with herte and mynde. And so her grace pass [...]d a lytell further / and at the lesser condyt was a costly and a ryche pagent / where as was goodly armonye of musyke and other myn­strels / with syngyng: And within that pagent was fyue costly seates / wherin was set these fyue perso­nages / that is to were Iuno / Pallas / Mercury / and Venus / and Parys hauyng a ball of golde presētyng [Page]it to her grace with certayne verses of great honour / and chyldren syngyng a balade to her grace / & prayse to all her ladyes / and so passed forth to Poules gate / where was a proper & a sumptuous pagent / yt is to wete / ther sat .iij. fayre ladyes virgyns costly arayde with a fayre roūde trone ouer their heedes / where a­boute was written this. Regina Anna prospere pro­cede et regna / that is in englysshe. Quene Anne pro­sper procede and reygne. The lady that sate in the myddes hauynge a table of golde in her hande wryt­ten with letters of asure. Veni amica coronaberis. Come my loue thou shalbe crowned. And two aūgels hauyng a close crowne of golde bytwene their hādes. And the lady on ye ryght hande had a table of syluer / wherin was writtē. Dn̄e dirige gressos meos. Lorde god dyrecte my wayes. The other on the lyfte hande had in another table of syluer written this. Cōfide in dn̄o. Trust in god. And vnder theyr fete was a longe rol wherin was written this. Regina Anna nouū re­gis de sanguine natū / cū paries populis aurea secla tuis. Quene Anne whan yu shalte beare a newe sone of ye kynges bloode / there shalbe a golden worlde vnto thy people. And so ye ladyes caste ouer her heed a multytude of wafers with rose leaues / & about ye wafers were written with letters of gold / this posey. And so her grace passed forth into Poules chyrchyarde / & at the eest ende of ye chyrch agaynst ye schole was a great scaffolde / wheron stode ye nombre of two hūdred chyl­dren well besene / who receyued her wt poetes verses to her noble honour / whā they had fynisshed she sayd Amen wt ioyful smylyng countenaunce / and so passed forth thrugh the longe chyrchyarde / & so to Ludgate [Page]whiche was costly & sumptuously garnysshed with golde / colours / and asure / with swete armony of bal­lades to her greate prayse & honour / wt dyuerse swete instrumentes. And thus her grace came thorowe the cyte with great honour and royaltye / and passed tho­rowe Fletestrete tyll she came to ye standarde & cōdyth where was made a fayre toure with foure tourettes with fanes / there within great plenty of swete īstru­mentes wt chyldren syngyng / the standarde of mason warke costly made with ymages and aungels / costly gylted with golde and asure / with other colours / and dyuerse sortes of armes costly set out shall there con­tynue and remayne / and within the standarde a vyce with a chyme. Also there ranne out of certayne small pypes great plenty of wyne all that afternoone. And so her grace passed through the cyte to temple barre / and so to Charyng crosse / and so thorowe Westmyn­ster into westmynster hall / where that was well and rychly hanged with cloth of Arras / with a meruay­lous ryche cupborde of plate / and there was a voyde of spyce places & wyne. And ye done the quenes grace withdrewe her into ye whyte hall for that nyght / and so to Yorke place by water. ¶ The sondaye in ye mor­nynge at .viij. of the clocke ye quenes grace wt noble la­dyes in theyr robes of estate / wt al ye nobles aparayled in parlyament robes / as dukes / erles / archbysshops and bysshops / wt barons / & the barons of ye fyue portꝭ with the mayre of ye cite / the aldermen in theyr robes as mātels of scarlet. The barons of ye fyue portꝭ bare a ryche canopy of cloth of golde / with staues of golde & four belles of syluer & gylt. The abbot of westmyn­ster wt his rygals came in to ye hall in pōtificalibus wt [Page]his monkes in theyr best copes / the kynges chapel in theyr best copes / with ye bysshops rychely aourned in pontificalibus / & the ray cloth blewe spredde from the hygh desses of ye kynges benche vnto the hygh aulter of westmynster. And so euery man procedynge to the mynster in ye best order / euery man after theyr degree apoynted to theyr order & offyce as aperteyneth came vnto ye place apoynted / where her grace receyued her crowne / wt all ye serymonyes therof as ther vnto belongeth. And so al ye serimonyes done wt ye solēpne masse / they departed home in their best orders euery man to the hal of westmynster / where ye quenes grace with­drew her for a tyme in to her chābre apoynted / & so af­ter a certayne space her grace came in to ye hall. Than ye shulde haue sene euery noble man doyng their ser­uyce to thē apoynted in ye best maner yt hath ben sene in any suche serimony. The quenes grace wasshed / ye archbisshop of Cāterbury sayd grace. Than ye nobles were set to the table / therwt came ye quenes seruice wt ye seruyce of tharch bysshop / a certayne space thre mē with the quenes grace seruyce. Before ye said seruyte came ye duke of Suffolke high cōstable ye day and ste­warde of ye feest on horsbacke / & meruaylously trap­ped in aparell wt rychesse. Than wt hym came ye lorde Wyllyam Hawarde / as depute to ye duke of Norfolke in ye rome of ye marshal of Englāde on horsbacke. The erle of essex caruer. Therle of Sussex sewer. Therle of Darby cupberer. Therle of Arūdell butteller. The visconte Lysle panter. The lorde Bray awmoner. These noble men dyd theyr seruyce in suche humble sorte & fassyon that it was wōder to se the payne and dylygence of them / beynge suche noble personages. [Page]The seruyce borne by knyghtes / whiche were to me to longe to tell in order / the goodly seruyce of kyndes of meate with their deuyses from the hyest vnto the lowest / there haue not ben sene more goodlyer nor ho­norablyer done in no mannes dayes.

¶ There was foure tables in ye great hall alonge the sayde hall.

  • The noble women one table / syttyng alon ye one syde.
  • The noble men an other table.
  • The mayre of Lōdon an other table wt his bretherne.
  • The barons of the portes with ye mayster of the chaū cery the fourth table.

And thus all thynges nobly and tryumphantly done at her coronacyon / her grace retourned to whyte hall with great ioy and solempnyte / and the morowe was great iustes at ye tylte / done by .xviij. lordes & knygh­tes / where was broken many speares valyauntly: but some of their horses wolde nat come at their plea­sure nere vnto the tylte / whiche was displeasure to some that there dyd ronne.

¶ Thus endeth this tryumphe: Imprinted at London in Fletestrete by Wynkynde Worde / for Iohan Goughe.
