Daughter of Henry VIII and Ann Boleyn, protestant Queen Elizabeth I ruled England from 1558 to 1603. Elizabeth's hardships started when she was only to and her mother was executed for treason. She later was locked up in the Bell Tower for two months when her sister, Queen Mary I linked her to Thomas Wyatt's rebellion against the Catholics. She finally overcame get hardships, taking over and ruling England. Queen Elizabeth I defeated the Spanish Armada and many others who tried to take away her power or her country.
How accurate is it to say that Catholicism remained a serious threat to Elizabeth I’s security throughout the years 1558-88? A serious threat to Elizabeth’s security would classify as anything which endangered either her safety, royal supremacy, religious settlement or all three. Therefore, it isn’t completely accurate to say that Catholicism remained a serious threat to the Queen’s security throughout the years 1558-88, as many measures were introduced in order to attempt to rid England of Catholicism once and for all.
In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, most of the characters are those of weak values, afraid to stand up for what is truly right. They see the actions of others, willing to give their lives to show that the leaders have it all wrong, and continue to persecute innocent people. Elizabeth is not such a character; she is devoted, strong and sees what is wrong in Salem. She does not give in to the lies, despite it nearly costing her life. Elizabeth Proctor’s strength and bravery help her to endure a struggling marriage, an accusation of witchcraft, and her husband’s actions as a martyr.
The Crucible is a story written in 1952 and is a story filled with lies and betrayal. Characters are constantly trying to save themselves from the cruel death of taking responsibility for their actions.

Elizabeth’s hatred for Abigail Williams, for the affair with her husband John Proctor is understandable.

Although Elizabeth I was an effective ruler, there were still faults in her reign. She was careless with the economy which endangered the stability of her country. This was reckless and extremely risky, even though she eventually gained control of the situation at the end. Had she not, the country of England could have been in turmoil and would have gone under. But, despite this fault, she was an effective ruler as she saved England from defeat by the Spanish Armada, started the Elizabethan Era, a great definition of English culture, and set a fantastic precedent for female rulers in a time when they were not celebrated.
Queen Elizabeth I spoke about her faults as a woman and the fact that she, a woman, has a “heart and stomach of a king” (6). This shows that women were aware they were being looked down upon as they compared a strong heart and stomach to one that only a king could have. This speech shows that its
Although for ages men and women have had conflicting roles. Men have primarily grasped higher positions of power in government and additionally within the church. From very early on women would not go against the given social structure. When Queen Elizabeth I took the throne in 1558 ( her reign from 1558-1603) she faced bias ways of many, the notion of a women leading their nation was unimaginable causing numerous people to question her capabilities as a ruler.

Medieval Times were covered in deceit and secrecy and one of the main duties of a Queen in the Middle Ages was to help the King and other nobility find ways to spy on rivals, start conflicts or wars or simply spread important gossip through the country.
