Queen Elizabeth I

Bristol Renaissance Faire. Sir Francis Walsingham. Principal secretary to Queen Elizabeth I of England. "Spymaster".

Queen Elizabeth I surrounded herself with highly intelligent and loyal advisors, such as Sir William Cecil, Sir Francis Walsingham, and Sir Robert Cecil, who gave her sound political advice. A major accomplishment of the Elizabethan government was the defeat of the Spanish Armada of 132 ships by the English fleet of just 34 ships and 163 armed merchant vessels, under the command of the Queen's cousin, Lord Howard of Effingham, and Sir Francis Drake and Sir John Hawkins.
