When Mary came to power, after Henry VIII and Edward VI died, she lost control of England and put Elizabeth in a hard situation. Mary was a Catholic, but most of the population in her rule were Protestants. The Protestants were uprising against Mary. If Elizabeth, as a Catholic, supported Mary, Elizabeth would be considered an illegal child in the eyes of the church, but Elizabeth did not want to go against her half-sister. Even worse!
Second, Lady Macbeth’s insanity shows when she sleepwalks. While sleepwalking, Lady Macbeth repeats words she said to Macbeth on the night Kind Duncan was killed, “Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?—Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him.” (Cowther 5: 1: 26-28).
Then, on her trial, no one stood up for her and she was to be hung in less than 24 hours. Charlotte knew she did not do it and found out that Zachariah did not do it and figured out that Captain Jaggery had probably done it. She needed to get the key to his safe where he kept his weapons. Charlotte planned it out where Mr. Keetch had somehow jammed the wheel and was having Captain Jaggery fix it so his cabin was free to get into.

(Shelley 94) The Crucible featured a trial in the third act where several characters accuse Abigail Williams, the main antagonist, of deceiving the court by falsely accusing people of witchcraft. As their evidence they present a follower to one of the girls, Mary Warren, to provide witness testimony to this. Abigail interferes by accusing her of witchcraft. As the trial goes on Mary Warren collapses under pressure and continues to go along with the game since she feared death.

So when an opportunity to get rid of Elizabeth comes up in the form of power to accuse people of witchcraft, Abigail jumps at the chance.
All through history millions of individuals have been shunned, arrested, brutally tortured, prosecuted, and persecuted as witches. One would think that post colonization of the United States these unjust acts to human kind would have ended, but that was not so.

Queen Elizabeth also advanced England’s economy, mostly by engaging in a wider world market. Under her rule, two of the most famous British trading monopolies developed: The Levant Company and the British East India Company. The Levant Company traded in the Ottoman Empire, and rivaled and surpassed the Dutch tea trade companies, boosting the English economy. The goal of the British East India Company was to control spice trade with the East Indies and eliminate any competition with the Spanish and Portuguese companies. British merchants sailed to the Far East and the Ottoman Empire to gather spices for tea and seasoning and quickly made successful trade businesses that contributed to the growing English economy.
