  • Queen Elizabeth I was born on September 7th, 1533. Elizabeth I was the daughter of King Henry VIII.
  • Elizabeth was raised much like any other royal child. She received tutoring and excelled at languages and music. Elizabeth I was born a princess but declared illegitimate through political machinations.
  •  Eventually, upon her half-sister Mary Tudor’s death, she took the crown. During her reign, Elizabeth I established Protestantism in England; defeated the Spanish Armada in 1588.
  • In 1558, Elizabeth took the reins of her country after her sister Queen Mary died and ruled until her death in 1603. Elizabeth I inherited a number of problems stirred up by Mary. The country was at war with France
  • There was also great tension between different religious factions after Mary worked to restore England to Roman Catholicism by any means necessary. In fact, she earned the nickname Bloody Mary for ordering the execution of 300 Protestants as heretics.
  • During her first session of parliament in 1559, she called for the passage of the act of supremacy, which re-established the church of England, and the act of uniformity, which created a common prayer book.
