In Europe of Shakespeare's day, the most respected people culturally were probably the Italians who were ahead of the rest of the continent in embracing Renaissance ideas.
Conquer the Island of Britain with the "Armada" invasion fleet and re-establish the Catholic faith as state religion .
British Queen Elizabeth I, improved the world power of her nation. Under her reign, the most significant success was the defeat of the Spanish Armada, that was sent to overthrow the British crown and revive Catholic religion in Great Britain.
It was rather the other way around: the Renaissance was important for her. To be specific: she was educated according to the views of the Humanist and Renaissance thinker Juan Luis Vives who was commisioned by Mary's father Henry VIII to write De Institutione Feminae Christianae, a treatise on the education of girls. As a result, she was allowed to study Latin, Greek French, Spanish and music; as was her sister Elisabeth.
It was Queen Victoria (20 June 1837 - 22 January 1901)
Queen Elizabeth I was the last Tudor monarch and was succeeded by James VI (of Scotland), who became James I as king of England and Ireland through the Act of Union in 1603. His predecessor of the Scottish throne was Mary, Queen of Scots.
She had a law passed whereby companies of actors would not be prosecuted as vagrants if they could show that they were employed by some noble person. What made this work was not only the desire of the acting companies to have such a noble patron, but also the desire of the nobility to be patrons of the arts by employing them. Being the patron of an acting company was a status symbol, so there… Read More
Queen Elizabeth did not age in any of her portraits because she did not want to.
Sir Walter Raleigh was given the rights to claim land in North America not already owned by a Christian monarch, by Queen Elizabeth I of England.
I need to find out how the Stuarts viewed Elizabeth. I already know that they preferred her to their current leader but I need to find out why. I am only twelve but I am trying to aim for a higher grade with more historical vocabulary.
Mary Stuart (Queen of Scots) was Elizabeth's Cousin. She was a threat to Elizabeth because she already ruled Scotland, she had been Queen of France and had friends there, she was Catholic. She also had a strong claim to the English Throne since there was still a lot of contention about Henry VIIIs various marriages which meant that as the Daughter of Henry's sister she was seen as a legitimate Queen for England by many… Read More
The Elizabethan Age was a period in English history when Queen Elizabeth I ruled. It lasted from 1558 to 1603 and has been considered by historians as the golden age in English history. The Elizabethan Age was most famous for theatre, featuring playwrights like William Shakespeare.
Shakespeare was always influenced by the Elizabethan class system, which affected his life significantly. Basically this system or some variant of it was assumed to be present at all times in history--see for example the first scene in Julius Caesar, with the lower class tradesmen and the more superior tribunes.
They were used to it. Shakespeare built on a tradition of tragedies, and his audience would have been familiar with the most popular Elizabethan play of all, Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy, which featured a man being murdered onstage in the presence of his lover, a man being hanged while convinced to the last second that he has been pardoned, a stage play in which some of the actors are really murdered and one really… Read More
King Henry VIII
England under Elizabeth was basically Protestant, but it followed a moderate. Protestantism that kept most people satisfied.Elizabeth tried to keep Spain and France from becoming too powerful by balancing power. If one nation seemed to be getting more powerful, England would support the weaker nation. Philip II of Spain wanted to invade England, partly to overthrow Protestantism. His advisers told him that the people of England would rise against Elizabeth when the Spaniards arrived. In… Read More
Short answer: politically she had no choice. Henry VIII"s first wife, Queen Catherine of Aragon was his only legitimate wife, and due to Henry's infertility problems, she had only given one daughter, Princess Mary, and no other children. Henry was having an affair with Anne Boleyn, which was doubly scandalous as Henry had previously had an affair with Anne's mother, and her husband confided to Henry that he could not marry Anne Boleyn as she… Read More
The Head of State that is, the King (or in this era: the Queen) was in modern terms the highest executive and judicial figure in the land with near-absolute power. In her day, Parliament met only intermittently and it could be sent home and simply be not convened for considerable periods if it in some way incurred the Queen's displeasure. Its main power derived from the fact that it had budgetary powers which it could… Read More
This is an awfully vague question. Generally, the hardships were suffered by almost everyone and consisted of the usual--poverty and grinding hard work. Transport wasn't very good, but then most people didn't or couldn't go anywhere anyway. The Elizabethan Era, and defining it in this way means we are talking about England, was a period of remarkable cultural flourishing, economic recovery and exploration. Lots of successes here.
cause she's stupid at all. ^_^
She was a strong supporter of Great Britain as a nation, and the Protestant Church.
Queen Elizabeth II still rules (as of November 2014) However, its assumed that this question was placed in the wrong category and therefore referred to Queen Elizabeth I. Queen Elizabeth I died on 24 March 1603 of septicaemia (blood poisoning) - she was nearly 70 years of age. Her death took place at Richmond Palace which was a royal residence on the right (south, or Surrey) bank of the River Thames, upstream of the Palace… Read More
Some advantages of Elizabeth 1 not marrying included not having to answer to a foreigner and their agenda for England.
The important world event that occurred in 1588 with Queen Elizabeth was the defeat of the Spanish Armada.
We have no contemporary documentary evidence which shows exactly which roles he played. In 1610 a congratulatory poem says he played "kingly parts". There is a story in one of Shakespeare's biographies that he played the Ghost in Hamlet, but this was written a hundred years after his death and is unsourced, and therefore dubious. It would have been a "kingly part" however, so it is not unlikely.
The present Queen of Great Britain, Elizabeth the II, served as a driver in the military during WW 2.
In 1558, Queen Elizabeth I succeeded her half-sister Queen Mary, and lived until 1603. When Queen Elizabeth II was born in 1926, her grandfather George V was king and the queen consort was Mary of Teck. Elizabeth's mother was Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (Duchess of York) who became queen consort when her husband (George VI) became king in 1936.
Because she never married. Granted that's not an absolute bar, but while it was more or less accepted that an unmarried King might have a few bastards, it was socially unthinkable for a unmarried Queen to do so. So, why didn't Elizabeth marry? She was more or less engaged a couple of times, but nothing ever actually came of any of them. There are several factors to consider: Elizabeth's sister Mary had been forced to… Read More
Yes. She was his daughter.
It depends on the question.
Peaceful enough for the times, though the Spanish caused a bit of a stir when they sent their armada to invade Britain. Fortunately, the Spanish forgot our British notorious weather.
William Shakespeare was born in Warwickshire, England, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England so, yes, he was one of her subjects.
Up until about 1660, all roles in all plays in England were played by men and boys. No females were allowed on stage, because it was considered to be indecent. The French did not have the same view, but when a French company which included an actress toured England they were booed off the stage because of her.
Queen Elizabeth 1's life was so full of incident and drama.
Yes, she was the Queen when he was born and died when he was thirty-nine.
Alexander the great conquered a large part of the ancient world. He created a large unified empire that allowed trade to flourish and culture to spread. I believe the spread of culture would be considered his greatest legacy.

It wouldn't be possible for her to have one. She never had sex and was known as the Virgin Queen.
With the death of Mary, Elizabeth succeeded to the throne of England in 1558. The bells tolled and citizens cheered. It was the beginning of the age of queens, where women would defy the principles of male-dominated rule, with the likes of the Queen Mother, Catherine de'Medici of France, Mary of Scotland and Elizabeth, Queen of England. The latter, however, would become the cornerstone of the era, guiding a kingdom with poise, wit, intellect and… Read More
Not that many, really. She wasn't very lucky or shrewd in choosing her husbands, and her choices never worked out or got her in trouble with the nobles in her kingdom or with other States, particularly England. After having been forced to abdicate in favor of her son James, she escaped to England, but neither her claim to the English throne nor her championship of the Catholic faith made her many friends there, certainly not… Read More

Yes, there are artifacts at Hatfield House, where she spent many childhood years. There are riding gloves, a hat and early silk stockings said to have belonged to her.
Elizabeth I was preceded by Mary I, her sister. Elizabeth II was preceded by George VI, her father.
When did Queen Elizabeth Die?
Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots was born in 1542. She was the queen of France and Scotland, and a claimant to the English throne. A rival of Elizabeth I, she could have been the last real hope of restored Catholicism in England. She died in 1587.
No. Mary Queen of Scots was the daughter of Elizabeths first cousin, both being descendants of King Henry VII. Elizabeth did have a half-sister Mary, who was Queen Mary I of England (Bloody Mary) and a different person from Mary Queen of Scots.

In addition to this, the Queen is also queen of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries within the british Commonwealth.

The easiest way to see what type of clothing was in fashion during Shakespeare's life is to search for images of people alive at the time. Fashions changed during his lifetime--they became decidedly less practical as time went on. Starched lace collars became ever more extravagant, and the women wore pannier skirts that made their hips look five feet wide. But these fashions were the perogative of the rich, and middle class folks like Shakespeare… Read More

The actual "q, w, e,r,t,y" letters, in my opinion, are not used that much besides my having to type them just then! I use the home row a whole lot more. If you want a fraction for how much qwerty is used, I would say maybe 1/10, if that, and only one or two letters then. Do you want the force exerted by fingers on the qwerty letters measured? I would say that the home… Read More

She may have met him, since many of his plays were performed during her reign, and a few under special circumstances were performed for her in particular. She could not have known him well, and there's no real reason to think that he would have been presented to her when she had viewed some of his plays, since from the fact that all dealings between actors and royalty were done through the Master of the… Read More

Well, I believe that her relationship was "daughter". :-) I think you're asking about the closeness of the relationship, which by most accounts I've read was very close. The entire family (King George VI, Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother), Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret) maintained that closeness despite the pressures of the abdication which brought King George to the throne and made Elizabeth the heir apparent. The general understanding is that Elizabeth's sense of… Read More

Of course Queen Elizabeth I sat on the throne, as shown in many portraits. Elizabeth took the throne - literally - during her coronation process.

During her 45-year reign Elizabeth had many dogs. There is a painting showing her with a small lap dog - the dog's name was Mrs. Perico. The painting is attributed to Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder, circa 1585, and shows her at Wanstead House (Leicester's house). The painting is owned by the Duke of Portland and the painting can be seen at Welbeck Abbey. The dog, which looks to be a Maltese or something similar, is… Read More
