According to Abigail Archer, who wrote Elizabeth I, during Edward’s reign, Elizabeth was treated affectionately by Edward, and he welcomed her on occasional visits to court. However, during Mary’s reign Elizabeth suffered. Abigail Archer suggest that “Mary’s attitude toward Elizabeth veered from friendship to suspicion and back.” (Archer n.p.) This could be for the reasons mentioned before, she did not trust her due to her faith after Elizabeth’s birth and that they believe in different religions.

Now I’m not say that Mary was innocent of everything bad because she did make many poor decisions. Like lying in court. “She only pretended to faint” (1329), says Proctor to Danforth. She agrees with him but refuses to show that side of her again. Not only this but she ended up going back to Abigail, which ended up with Proctor in jail. Warren continuously makes inadequate conclusions about others in the story.

Elizabeth I and Tudor England, written by Miriam Greenblatt, tells about Queen Elizabeth I’s greatest accomplishments and struggles along the path to becoming the Queen of England. On September 7, 1533, Anne Boleyn gave birth to Elizabeth. Her father, Henry VIII, was desperately hoping for a son. He had divorced his first wife, Catherine, and beheaded Anne for not giving birth to sons. His third wife gave birth to his long-awaited son, Edward. Edward was named heir to Henry VIII. Mary, the daughter of Catherine, was a step above Elizabeth for being heir to the throne.
