By Bill Federer, staff writer
“Bloody Mary,” daughter of Henry VIII, sentenced 300 people to death during her 5 year reign. At her death, NOVEMBER 17, 1558, her half-sister Elizabeth became Queen. During Elizabeth’s 45 year reign, Shakespeare wrote plays, Francis Bacon began the scientific revolution and Sir Walter Raleigh attempted to settle a colony he named “Virginia,” in honor of the “Virgin Queen” Elizabeth.
When word came of a plot to assassinate her, Elizabeth executed dozens, including her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots – the mother of England’s next monarch, King James I. When Spain sent its Invincible Armada to conquer England, Elizabeth’s Sir Francis Drake, aided by a hurricane, defeated them.
Though Elizabeth’s father, Henry VIII, separated the Anglican Church from Rome, it retained many rituals to which “Puritans” objected. At her 1558 Coronation, Queen Elizabeth stated: “Christ was the Word that spake it,
He took the bread and brake it, And what that Word did make it,
I do believe and take it.” Of her epitaph, Elizabeth said:
“I am no lover of pompous title, but only desire that my name may be recorded in a line or two, which shall express my name, my virginity, the years of my reign, and the reformation of religion under it.”
