From a compromise for what faith England would follow to beating the Spanish Armada. Elizabeth was born September 7, 1533 at Greenwich England.

When Elizabeth was only two, her father had her mom implemented for suspicion of adultery. When her father decided to have Elizabeth's mother implemented, he then stripped Elizabeth of her title as celebrity. In 1553, Elizabeth's half brother, Edward, died at age nine. Soon afterwards, Elizabeth's half sister chose the throne. Her name was Mary. Mary caused many problems for England. Mary thought that England must follow one religion and anyone who didn't follow this religion would be implemented. Mary was Catholic. She later got the nickname "bloody Mary" since she murdered so many Protestants. This caused a problem for Elizabeth because she had been Protestant.
