♔ After a lifelong struggle to give England an heir, Henry’s glorious successor was not a son, but a daughter. Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, came to the throne in 1558, and ruled England for 45 years. She was the last of the great Tudor dynasty, a bright star who dazzled both the nation, and the world. And the achievement of Gloriana, the great Queen of England, still lives on to this day.

  • "I do assure you, there is no Prince that loves his subjects better. There is no jewel, be it of so rich a price, which I place before this jewel; I mean your love. And though you may have many mightier and wiser Princes sitting in this seat, yet you never had, nor shall have, any that will love you better.”
