Queen Elizabeth 1st one of the greatest monarchs in English history has always been a source of boundless fascination. From the day she was born, life was going to be tough. Daddy, Henry wanted a boy baby. Three years after Elizabeths birth, he could no longer ignore his disappointment and had mum, Anne murdered for her mistake! Henry continues his ongoing pursuit for male sporn, marrying Jane. Consequently, Elizabeth is retrenched from her role as Princess and heir to the throne. Henry dies from a jousting injury in 1536, his son Edward takes his seat. Edwards reign is short lived, dyeing at 13. In comes Mary, Elizabeths sister. Mary enjoys being Catholic and believes everyone else should too, if you didnt you died! Elizabeth, a Protestant was thrown into a cell in the Tower of London for her defiance! Finally at 25, Elizabeth gets to sit in the hot seat, the Queen of England is crowned.
