During Queen Elizabeths start of her reign, she tried to settle out dangerous entanglements with foreign countries such as Spain. She also had to prove she was a strong leader that would help England.
Even though Religious leaders were still pressuring Queen Elizabeth, she still managed to make some sort of religious conformity for her subjects. Also, even with foreign entanglements she still managed to not start a wars with the Irish lords, French leaders, or Spain leaders.
Protestants and Christians going to chruch together
Foreign enemies made England even harder for Queen Elizabeth to control. Spain had already invaded once, and there was fear they had established Ireland as a base and that Irish lords were rebelling against England.
Queen Elizabeth had to worry about enemies inside England. Some Roman Catholics and Radical Protestants were seeking revenge on Queen Elizabeth for trying to unify the churches. By 1574 Catholics were attempting to assassinate Queen Liz and bring back old religious teachings in England.
