ELIZABETH I(1) was born on 7 Sep 1533
in Greenwich Palace, England. Elizabeth I Queen of England & Ireland was
born on 7 Sep 1533 in London, England. Died on 23 Mar 1603 in London, England.
Reigned in 1558/1603. Elizabeth I (1533-1603), queen of England and Ireland
(1558-1603), daughter of Henry VIII, king of England, and of his second wife,
Anne Boleyn. She was the last of the Tudor rulers of England. Although her legitimacy
was questioned and never settled (because an act of Parliament  invalidated
the marriage of her parents and enabled Henry to marry his third wife, Jane Seymour),
both Parliament and Henry named as heirs to this throne his children Edward,
later Edward VI; Mary, later Mary I; and Elizabeth, in that order.
Childhood and Accession as Queen
Born in London on September 7, 1533, Elizabeth spent her childhood away from
the court and received an excellent classical education under such scholars as
Roger Ascham, who influenced her greatly. Henry's sixth wife, Catherine Parr,
later became fond of the young Elizabeth and brought her back to court. She remained
in Catherine's charge after Henry's death and took no part in the political intrigues
following the coronation of her brother as King Edward VI. When Edward died,
Elizabeth became a partisan of her sister Mary, refusing to support the revolt
led by the English soldier and conspirator Sir Thomas Wyatt (1521?-54) against
Mary, who became queen in 1553. Nevertheless, Mary, a devout Roman Catholic,
was made uneasy by the Protestantism of Elizabeth and her potential menace as
an heir to the throne. In 1554, Elizabeth was imprisoned on the false charge
of having been implicated in Wyatt's rebellion. She was later released, having
outwardly professed Roman Catholicism, and regained Mary's favor.
At the death of Mary in 1558, Elizabeth became queen, beginning one of the greatest
reigns in English history. At the time of Elizabeth's accession, England was
torn by religious strife, was economically insecure, and was involved in a disastrous
war with France. To these problems Elizabeth brought a thorough education, innate
shrewdness, and a skill in diplomacy that she had constantly exercised during
the reigns of Edward and Mary, when one mistake might have meant her death. Although
she was excessively vain and capricious, her monarchial duties were always her
primary concern. Her policies and her colorful personality made her extremely
popular with her subjects. Elizabeth's statecraft was due, to a great extent,
to her choice of able and wise advisers, most notably Sir Francis Walsingham
and William Cecil, 1st Baron Burghley.
Religion was Elizabeth's initial problem as queen. She reverted to Protestantism
immediately after Mary's death, and her first Parliament (1559) had a Protestant
majority. Between 1559 and 1563, this Parliament passed religious legislation
that became the doctrinal basis of the Church of England. In the Elizabethan
Compromise (1559), the Church of England became the established church, and throughout
Elizabeth's reign Roman Catholics and Puritans were persecuted.
A Popular Queen
Elizabeth's domination of the period to which her name became attached was due
in part to the exuberant national spirit that she inspired and that characterized
all England during the second half of the 16th century. She restored popular
confidence in the monarchy, and a wave of prosperity swept every field of endeavor.
With the religious question settled and the war with France concluded by the
Treaty of Cateau-Cambrésis (1559), England was able to develop industrially
and economically. Under Elizabeth's direction, the government began to regulate
commerce and industry on a national scale. England grew to be a great maritime
power with the exploits of such mariners as Sir Francis Drake and Sir Martin
Frobisher. A new system of standard coinage was introduced in 1560 to replace
the silver coins that had been considerably debased during the preceding three
reigns. As a result, prices fell to normal levels and confidence in English money
was restored. Foreign trade, encouraged by the government, became a great capitalistic
enterprise. The Royal Exchange of London was opened in 1566, and the company
of merchants that later became the English East India Company was chartered in
1600. Above all this activity stood the figure of Elizabeth. In the eyes of her
subjects, Elizabeth was England.
From the beginning of her reign, Elizabeth's marital status was a political concern
because there was no English heir to the throne. Parliament insistently petitioned
her to marry, but she replied with the statement that she intended to live and
die a virgin, and she became known as the Virgin Queen. Her statement did not
prevent her from toying constantly with the idea of marriage. She was besieged
by royal suitors, each of whom she favored when it was in her political interest
to do so. Her affections, however, were bestowed on a succession of favorites,
notably Robert Dudley, 1st earl of Leicester, Sir Walter Raleigh, and Robert
Devereux, 2d earl of Essex.
Elizabeth's most delicate political problem was that involving her Roman Catholic
cousin, Mary, queen of Scots. Mary sought refuge in England after being defeated
in battle by her half brother, James Stuart, earl of Moray (1531?-70). Elizabeth
immediately imprisoned Mary because the Catholic monarchs of Europe and her own
Catholic subjects considered Elizabeth illegitimate. By their reasoning, Mary
was the lawful queen of England. Thus, to Elizabeth, Mary was the potential center
of conspiracy. Mary was kept captive for years, giving rise to many plots by
English Catholics for her release. When in 1586 Walsingham, then secretary of
state, discovered a plot to assassinate Elizabeth and place Mary on the throne
of England, Elizabeth reluctantly agreed to have Mary executed in 1587. The execution
had serious results. Philip II of Spain had, for years, been troubled by the
raids of English mariners on his colonial possessions. Because both Mary and
Philip were Catholic, her death provided him with an added stimulus to prosecute
the war with England that had been going on since 1585; he therefore sent a fleet
to invade the country in 1588. The Spanish Armada, however, suffered an inglorious
defeat, and England eventually took the place of Spain as the great colonizer
of the New World and the reigning power on the seas. Moreover, by inflicting
such defeat on Catholic Spain, England established Protestantism as a force in
End of an Era
Elizabeth's popularity waned toward the end of her reign because of her heavy
expenditures and abuse of royal power. Moreover, her policies became weaker,
her later ministers being less able than Cecil or Walsingham. The close of Elizabeth's
reign was disturbed by a revolt in Ireland that was led by Hugh O'Neill. The
2d earl of Essex, Elizabeth's favorite, unsuccessfully led an army against the
Irish. When he returned to England, he led a revolt against the queen and was
executed in 1601. Following his death, Elizabeth was disconsolate. She spent
the last years of her life unhappy and alone, having outlived a glorious age,
the beginning of the history of what would become modern England. She died in
London on March 23, 1603.
In addition to being a time of political triumphs, the Elizabethan era was notable
as one of the greatest periods of English literature. Edmund Spenser, Christopher
Marlowe, and Shakespeare were only a few of the host of writers who created their
great works under Elizabeth. The dramatic personality of Elizabeth became the
subject of a voluminous literature.
