Family Life

Elizabeth is the daughter of King Henry VII and Anne Boleyn. She never married and never had any kids. She had an older half-sister Mary I. She was the original heir to the throne but then she married King of Spain so the throne went to Elizabeth. She also had a half-brother Edward VI but he died at the age of 15. Her father was Anglican, so Elizabeth was too.
