On This Day… The Elizabethan Era Began!

Written by: George Chittenden : 13 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 17th November, back in 1558 when Elizabeth 1st succeeded to the throne of England following the death of her half-sister Queen Mary. Elizabeth was the last Tudor monarch. She was born in Greenwich on 7th September 1533, the daughter of Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn.

She witnessed the execution of her mother, under the orders of her father at a young age. She was very well-educated and fluent in five languages. Her reign witnessed widespread increase in literacy and great achievements in the arts, as well as expansion overseas and military victory over threatened invasion.

During her reign Elizabeth was regarded as wise and just, and in the history books she is remembered as one of England's greatest monarchs... if not in fact the greatest.
