Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603) - How I Changed the World:
I was Gloriana, the Virgin Queen, arguably the greatest monarch in English history and the founder of its empire. I inherited the absolute authority built up by my father and grandfather and ruled England in its first Golden Age, an age of great writers, poets, privateers, explorers, spies and sailors. Wary of weakening the English crown in its own lands, I scrupulously avoided marriage but on my death unified the thrones of Scotland and England. I worked with vigor to establish the Protestant faith in England and rallied the nation against the Spanish menace – wearing armor to the coast and exhorting my fleet to defeat the invading Armada.
You Might Not Know This: The primary goal of my extensive spy network was to protect me from assassination; my long reign might seem stable but there was constant threat of rebellion and religiously motivated murder.
