Queen Elizabeth I by MW and LW

Queen Elizabeth, was born on September 7, 1533 in Greenwich Palace. Her father was Henry VIII and her mother was Anne Boleyn.Also before she was three years old her mother was beheaded. When Elizabeth grew up she became the queen of England, France and Ireland, because after her half brother died, her half sister became queen then she died in 1588 , so the made Elizabeth Queen of England at 25 years old. She was also the fifth and final monarch. She was ranked seventh in the 100 greatest Brittans in 2002. Elizabeth died in Greenwich palace on March 24, 1603 when she was seventy years old, and the years she reigned were known as the Golden Age. If we could ask Queen Elizabeth I one question it would be, " What was it like being the ruler of England", obviously we won't get an answer. Over all Queen Elizabeth was a great ruler.
