Normal Day in This Era
Boys are allowed to marry at age 14 and girls at age 12,with parent permission. Non-noble families usually marry at a much older age than noble families. Those of the highest rank are well educated. Peoples lives were usually short, around 30 years of age was the maximum age somebody could live.More than half of the children born never lived over 15 years. Short lifespan was due to few knowledge in the medical area.
Why was she considered the best Queen?
- She showed that women shouldn't be considered any less of a man and that they could rule a nation just as good if not better than any male. She once said "I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too."
- She also defeated the Spanish armada ( fleet of warships) which was very world wide known to be one of the best armadas in the world and of course in doing so, she gained lots of popularity around the globe.
