She herself was initially unsure about succeeding to the throne. But after her half-sister's death in November 1558 she did. The image of Elizabeth's reign is one of triumph and success though it also faced its share of wars. Her popularity and respect was boundless and she was often addressed as 'Gloriana', 'Good Queen Bess' and 'The Virgin Queen'. She was very well-educated (fluent in six languages) and she is known for her intelligence, shrewdness and determination.
She created a lasting legacy that people around the world continue to remember. Overcoming the problems with her family allowed her to become the strong, fearless lady that she was. Because of her skill and determination, she was able to reestablish the Protestant religion and defeat the Spanish Armada. Queen Elizabeth I was as tough as any man, and she proved to be when she ruled without the help of a husband.

(http://www.biography.com/people/queen-elizabeth-i-9286133#later-years). Queen Elizabeth had faced many challenges during that time. Even though she was a capable ruler, England had experienced quite a few invasions by other countries. Queen Elizabeth I did everything what was necessary to make her country safe. When fighting back was the ultimate option, she would not hesitate.
But she was not only loved for her beauty, she was loved for the connection she was able to make with the people. Princess Diana took a new approach as a royal. She sought out to be a liberal royal. A princess that understood the lives and difficulties of the people below her. She was frowned upon for this by her fellow royals but she became the people princess.
Elisabeth the first probably wrote this speech because she knew that some of her men had no faith in her and in their chances at winning against the Spanish armada. The queen tries to abridge a link between her and her troops, and tries to show them that she worth of their trust and will eventually reward them for defending her. thus it can be deducted that if it wasn’t for the Queen’s speech the battle might have turned out to be very different and the Spanish might have win. Therefore Elisabeth was able to use Ethos, Logos, and Pathos to make a well rouded and very convincing speech for her
The true essence of “The Birthmark” is infiltrated through the hidden structure of the strength of a woman. As we unpack the passion behind the obsession that Aylmer presents with his genius in science, on the surface, one may recognize his obscenity and categorize it as a reflection of masculine control. Though, this is in fact true, what strikes as an unbeknownst strength is the hidden sacrifice that Georgiana represents as she succumbs to her spouse and his desire to make her “perfect”. As Hawthorne structures this sacrifice as a mere testament of how women of the late 1700’s - 1800’s valued the perspective of their spouse, it is necessary to extract how this act of selflessness attributes to the amount of love and respect Georgiana has for Aylmer, although his actions are mystifyingly shallow and obcered. The strength that Georgiana exudes as she has faced critique throughout her lifetime, is that of a woman who exudes resilience and self confidence.
A Fierce Female’s Political Quest; Olympe De Gouges Discovering Olympe de Gouges’ work has been a valuable acquaintance, since de Gouges is a truly fascinating character in French history; as Beckstrand wrote in her article “she [Olympe de Gouges] wrote forty-one plays, twenty-nine works of prose and sixty-three political pamphlets, taking unpopular stances on difficult issues concerning women’s rights and the abolition of slavery” (185). De Gouges can be remembered as a passionate individual, courageous, intense and extremely dedicated to her cause. Furthermore this intriguing lady never backed down from a challenge, and she continued to fight for her ideals, until “she was [guillotined] on November 4, 1793 for her controversial writing” (Beckstrand 185). Olympe de Gouges has been most noted for the 1791 Declaration of the Rights of Women and the Female Citizen, “for this and other publications dissenting from Jacobin orthodoxy[…], she became the second woman (after [Queen] Marie Antoinette) to be executed by guillotine, in 1793” (Roelofs 572). Nonetheless, she can certainly be counted as one of the historical women who helped develop and modify traditional gender roles; “de Gouges uses the rhetoric of masculinity and femininity to destabilise gender roles and sexual stereotypes” (Beattie 264).
Elizabeth ends the poem by revealing that she is no longer a fearful prisoner at the mercy of those with more authority than her, but a powerful ruler of England. With this poem, the young queen displays her formidable strength and warning to any, including fate, who threaten her
