Queen Elizabeth I – Gloriana
Where would England be today had Elizabeth I not become queen? A lesser ruler might have succumbed to the conflicting demands of political factions. A lesser personality might have indulged personal whims at the cost of ministerial respect. Against great odds – her father ordered her mother's execution; she had no husband; she produced no heir; and her cousin plotted her assassination. Elizabeth nevertheless tackled religious strife, political divisions, court intrigue and war, to guide England to a state of unity and prosperity. Speaker: Nancy Maxwell
