Queen Elizabeth I
There are many period images of Elizabeth for this artist to draw on in his interpretation of the Queen, but the closest version appears to be the Rainbow portrait, attributed to Isaac Oliver. You can find many more pics of Elizabeth from the page of Elizabeth image links in our Who's Who resource.
