“Elizabeth I: Ruler and Legend” is a national traveling exhibition organized by the Newberry Library's Center for Renaissance Studies, in collaboration with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. It is based on a major exhibition of the same name mounted by the Newberry Library in 2003 to commemorate the reign of Queen Elizabeth I on the four hundredth anniversary of her death. The Newberry Library, Chicago, is an independent humanities research library, and is free and open to the public.

This exhibition has been made possible in part by two major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, promoting excellence in the humanities. Major support for the exhibition is provided by the Vance Family Fund and the University of Illinois at Chicago.
