Hi, I'm Christian Bryant, and today we're profiling Queen Elizabeth I of England.Elizabeth was born to King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn on September 7, 1553. Henry VIII desperately wanted a son as the heir to his throne.
So when Anne gave birth to Elizabeth, he was devastated. Their marriage was declared null and void, and Elizabeth was thrown off course from the line of succession to the throne.
During her schooling, she became well-known for her intellectual abilities and was fluent in a handful of languages. Her father died in 1547, and when her brother Edward became King Edward VI, many high-society members viewed Elizabeth as a political pawn. Elizabeth at this time was second in line to the throne.
A few years after the Wyatt Rebellion of 1554, Elizabeth was set for rulership. Her sister, Mary, who was queen at the time, suspected Elizabeth conspired with the Wyatt family to stage the rebellion and overthrow her rule, but no factual confirmation of this exists.
Elizabeth was renowned for her fear of childbirth and consistency with being single. Questions often surfaced about who would be her heir once she passed, and the fact that she had no child of her own upset many members of the Catholic church, especially after the drama that evolved when she took the throne and Mary was imprisoned.Queen Elizabeth I ruled Britain for just more than 44 years until the time of her death in late March of 1603. She was renowned for her extravagant appearance and her means of listening to feedback of policies she and Parliament proposed. If a policy was unjust, she saw to it that proper adjustments were made. During her rise to the throne and throughout her rule, various controversies about her transpired. However, she was seen as an intelligent leader in the political realm.
