Elizabeth I (7 September 1533 – 24 March 1603)[1] was Queen of England and Ireland from 17

November 1558 until her death on 24 March 1603. Sometimes called The Virgin
Queen, Gloriana or Good Queen Bess, Elizabeth was the last of the five monarchs of the House of
Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, his second wife, who was executed two-
and-a-half years after Elizabeth's birth. Anne's marriage to Henry VIII was annulled, and Elizabeth
was declared illegitimate. Her half-brother, Edward VI, ruled until his death in 1553, bequeathing the
crown to Lady Jane Grey and ignoring the claims of his two half-sisters, Elizabeth and the Roman
Catholic Mary, in spite of statute law to the contrary. Edward's will was set aside and Mary became
queen, deposing Lady Jane Grey. During Mary's reign, Elizabeth was imprisoned for nearly a year
on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels.
As she grew older, Elizabeth became celebrated for her virginity. A cult grew around her which was
celebrated in the portraits, pageants, and literature of the day. Elizabeth's reign became known as
the Elizabethan era.

Marriage question
it was very important for the population to see Elizabeth married, meaning to have heirs and to have
relations with the other countries, because she married a prince from another country.
From the start of Elizabeth's reign, it was expected that she would marry and the question arose to
whom. Although she received many offers for her hand, she never married and was childless; the
reasons for this are not clear. Historians have speculated that Thomas Seymour had put her off
sexual relationships. However, the choice of a husband might also provoke political instability or
even insurrection.
There were many contenders but nobody conquered her because she did not trust them.

Wars and overseas trade

The time Elizabeth led England was always attacked and subject to the dangers of wars. She claimed
military Netherlands, declared autonomy to Ireland, supported diplomatic relations with Russia and
Islamic States. She is renowned for having fought a war with the Spanish Armada, Spain's largest
maritime fleet But the biggest and destructive war was with Spain, namely the Spanish Armada. The
cause of the rage was the spread of religion. Elizabeth claimed that the Protestant religion was in
Europe, and the Spaniards supported Catholicism. In this war, Mary, the sister-in-law of Elizabeth, she
was the Queen of the Scots and allied and supported the Spaniards in the holy war. The war was won by
England, with fewer ships in the war, won England against the Spanish army, the largest maritime
warfare ever known.

perioada cand a condus anglia era mereu atacata si supusa pericolelor razboaielor. ea a sustinut militar
netherland, a declarat autonomie irlandei, a sustinut relatii diplomatice cu rusia si statele islamice. dar
cel mai mare si distrugator razboi a fost cu spania si anume cu spanish armada. cauza raboiului era
raspandirea religiei. elizabeth sustinea ca religia protestanta sa fie in europa si spaniolii sustineau
catolicismul. in acest razboi mary, sora vitrega a elizabeth, era regina scotilor si s-a aliat si a sustinut pe
spanioli in razboiul sfant. razboiul a fost castigat de catre anglia, cu nave mai putine in razboi, a castigat
Anglia impotriva spanish armada, cea mai mare flota maritima de razboi cunoscuta vreodata.
Abraham Lincoln

On November 6, 1860, Lincoln was elected the 16th president of the United States, beating Douglas,
Breckinridge, and Bell. He was the first president from the Republican Party. His victory was entirely due
to the strength of his support in the North and West.

Civil war was a war triggered by southern men against those in the north. But those in the north have
won. As long as the civil war went, in parliament there were heated talks about the abolition of slavery
of the colour people. As a result, on 19 June 1862 official in the America, slavery was abolished by the
introduction of the Thirteenth Amendment in the Constitution.

Reconstruction was a procces, planned by Lincoln, that involved how to reintegrate the conquered
Southern States. Abraham Lincoln led the moderates regarding Reconstruction policy against the radical
Republicans and planned a course of action that would reunite the nation rather than separate the
South. In 1863, Lincoln issued the Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction to announce his
intention to reunite the once- united states.

Lincoln’s position against slavery caused him to make many enemies. so when he was at the theater he
was assassinated, during the theatrical piece.
