Course Description

In 1558, a young woman was crowned queen and, despite the attempts of her courtiers, ruled England alone and unmarried for 45 years. How did Elizabeth rule and control her male courtiers and rebellious subjects? How did she play off her suitors against each other and why did she never marry? What was the Cult of Gloriana and what part did it play in her reign? This day school examines Elizabeth’s career, from bastard princess to Virgin Queen using portraits and contemporary accounts. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King's Manor.
