First when can go to how religion was a huge part of Elizabeth Tudor’s life. She felt that following religion and always keeping to its laws and rules was how you were to act in life, and it ended up being the same till the end for Ophelia. “Her death was doubtful, and, but that great command o'ersways the order, she should in ground unsanctified have lodged till the last trumpet.” (V, I, 226-228) This line is when the doctor is talking about the burial of Ophelia and it is also when Ophelia is being disrespected in a way by what the doctor had to say about her not deserving a Christian burial like she was given. Another thing found similar between Tudor and Ophelia would be that they were both used as a pawn in some way. First, when Tudor became in power, France and Spain began to use their power over her kingdom and used her as a weaken pawn to get their kingdoms farther.
