Why Elizabeth I?

When in fourth grade a book, Young Bess, by Margaret Irwin reached my hands. From the moment the novel was started, I was a committed Queen Elizabeth I fan.

Her qualities of intelligence, wit, courage and judgment, just to name a few, were readily revealed through my extensive reading and over the years my admiration for her increased.

The purpose of this blog is to discuss questions on topics pertinent to Elizabeth I Regina  and her reign by synthesizing information from a variety of text sources and information gained by visiting historic sites.
