Jane Seager was a poet, translator, and miniature artist working at the end of the sixteenth century. Her family was established as scriveners and artists, serving at the margins of Queen Elizabeth I’s court. Seager translated Latin, was aware of the latest cryptographic innovations, and participated in the gift exchange culture of the Elizabethan court. Only one of her productions survives.
