Queen Elizabeth I

1533-1603

Elizabeth's Childhood

Queen Elizabeth's childhood was full of uncertainties. She wasn't completely sure if she was going to claim the throne because she had a half brother named Edward VI and a half sister named Mary. Elizabeth was the 3rd person that would claim the throne, but due to her sibling's death, she was closer to the throne.

When she was born, Henry VIII changed the history of England by marrying Anne Boleyn. Henry wanted Anne to have a boy that his other wife (Catherine of Aragon) couldn't provide. But instead of the boy that Henry VIII was expecting, Elizabeth I was born.
