She was never married and was known as the "Virgin Queen" because she had no children. She brought England a victory when beating Spain, at the time the most powerful country in the world, in war. Her birth was a disappointment because her father wanted a boy so he could be King. Who was this interesting and bold person? Queen Elizabeth I. Brave and intelligent, Queen Elizabeth I achieved many important thing when she was Queen and England would never be the way it is now if it wasn't for her.
Queen Elizabeth I was born on September 7, 1533. Her father was Henry VIII and her mother was Anne Boleyn ("Elizabeth I, Queen of England" par 1). Elizabeth's birthplace was at Greenwhich Palace, England ("Elizabeth I Biography" par 2). When she was born her father did not even want a girl so Anne Boleyn was executed in 1536 for suspicion of infidelity. Elizabeth father had married and she had Edward VI and Mary as her half siblings. She grew up without a mothers care but was intelligent and well educated. Elizabeth knew a number of languages and loved music("Elizabeth I, Queen of England" par 1 and 9). Elizabeth was taught by famous scholars such as William Grindal and Roger Asham. She did enjoy many recreations including horseback riding, hawking, hunting, and bear baiting ("Elizabeth I Biography" par 5 and 8). Through her early childhood she wasn't really considered the next queen or great ruler. Elizabeth was just considered the Kings daughter and was actually barely seen by him ("Queen Elizabeth I" par 9). Something other that was very present in her life was that she inherited a feud between the Catholics and Protestants ("Elizabeth I 1558-1603 AD" par 2).
Queen Elizabeth's father died in January of 1547 ("Elizabeth I Biography" par 8). After her father died she lived with her latest stepmother Queen Catherine. Thomas Seymor married Catherine and became Elizabeth's stepfather.

Seymor would sneak into Elizabeth's room in the morning and Catherine just thought it was playful. She was wrong and he cheated on her with Elizabeth. Elizabeth left after the incident and she admitted that she liked her affair with Seymor. Then Catherine died in 1548 and Seymor decided that he wanted to be with her. Elizabeth would marry Seymor but she would have to get permission first. Then her servants were questioned under pressure and confessed that Thomas had an affair with Elizabeth. So Thomas Seymor was executed in 1552 (Catherine Bush page 15-16). Aside from that the Council had many expectations from her but she had a different view on things ("Queen Elizabeth I Biography" par 4).
