A one-hour taster into the early life of Queen Elizabeth I before her accession to the throne.
Good Queen Bess, Elizabeth I, was anointed monarch over England and Ireland in the first month of 1559.
Until her death in 1603, the fifth and final Tudor to hold the throne, she was a brilliant queen who impressed both the English and the rest of the world.
Most stellar performers of this calibre quickly burn out, but Elizabeth still shines brightly almost five centu-ries later, and it’s not a mystery why.
She ruled for four and a half decades over a kingdom that had been beset by years of troubles, bringing a more pragmatic and steadying hand to the helm.
Her English navy humiliated the Spanish Armada and explored the four corners of the globe. During the Elizabethan era, William Shakespeare penned many of his famous plays and poet Edmund Spencer scribbled epic, fantastical verse about ‘The Faerie Queene’.
In a position of incredible power, she was courted by a string of princes and nobleman, but Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen had only one true love—the people of England.
