I think Jinja has a good memory, good notes, or both. My notes produced the following -
Elizabeth I - reigned 1558-1603. Briefly, Elizabeth I was crowned three times, at the one event, with three different crowns, it seems.
I had a quick look at The Crown Jewels 1998 to discover that. The author has used the word "presumably".
The first crown was presumably St Edward's Crown.
Removed, then a second crown put on her head which was presumably the Imperial Crown.
Removed, and a third crown was put on her head. No name is provided for it.
I would think it is most unlikely that any of those crowns exist today. We need to consider the years of the Commonwealth when Regalia was broken up and much destroyed. New Regalia was made for the restoration of the monarchy.
