      I don't care who you are or what your opinions or views are, but when a woman takes charge in a time when women were treated about as well as the livestock you can't help but admire her. The fact that she was one of the best rulers of the English monarchy ever just adds to her appeal. Long live Queen Elizabeth.

      Queen Elizabeth I - the first women in history to rule a kingdom, a nation without a man, a husband. During her rein as queen, England was its most powerful & the wealthiest & the most peaceful it has ever been

      In acting as Queen Elizabeth Tudor for a World History "Meeting of the Minds" project, I was called a bastard child of a witch, and I call my counterpart (Queen Mary of Scotts aka my friend Lindsey) a whore... we still call each other these things in loving jest. ;)

    Although throughout her reign Queen Elizabeth I never spoke publicly of her mother, the treasonous; and beheaded second wife of Henry VIII, upon Elizabeth's death in 1603, this ring was removed from her finger. Within its secret compartment are two miniature enamel portraits, one of Elizabeth, the other, of a woman many believe to be Anne.

    This very rare image of the ‘nine day Queen’ by Lucas de Heere was owned by Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough. Lady Jane is shown as a girl in her family home of Bradgate, in Leicestershire, before her ascension to the throne. Caught up in the scheming of various factions at court, the teenaged Lady Jane was used as a puppet to block the claims of the Catholic Mary Tudor. Ousted from the throne, Lady Jane was executed at the Tower of London in 1554.

    The death of Queen Elizabeth I., as imagined by artist, Paul Delaroche (1828). In March 1603 Elizabeth was described as being unwell and seemed depressed. She took up residence in one of her favourite palaces – Richmond – close to the River Thames. She refused to allow herself to be examined, and she refused take to her bed – standing for hours on end. As her condition deteriorated her ladies-in-waiting spread cushions on the floor, and Elizabeth eventually lay down on them.
