Elizabeth is born on 7 September in Greenwich Palace. News of her birth causes excitement across the country, but is a very big problem to her father Henry. He is desperate for a male heir to continue the Tudor dynasty.
Elizabeth is two years and eight months old when her mother Anne Boleyn is accused of adultery and beheaded on the orders of Henry VIII. Her father marries Anne’s lady-in-waiting Jane Seymour a week later. Elizabeth is declared illegitimate and removed from the royal succession.
Following the death of her half-sister Mary, Elizabeth succeeds to the throne. She is 25. Elizabeth has inherited a country wracked by religious strife and knows she needs public support to remain queen. The celebrations for the coronation the following year are spectacular. As her procession makes its way through London on its way to Westminster she pauses to listen to congratulations and receive flowers from ordinary people on the street.
