Overview: England’s first Queen Elizabeth gave her identify to an age. Inheriting a bankrupt, famished, and powerless nation, she healed its non secular rifts, replenished its treasury, redefined diplomatic guile, defeated the Spanish Armada, and impressed a brand new flowering of English tradition.
Her father, Henry VIII, beheaded her mom, Anne Boleyn, and Elizabeth was once declared a bastard.
