Queen Elizabeth I
Elizabeth I (1533-1603), Queen of England and Ireland (1558-1603) was one of England's greatest monarchs, ruling from 1558 right after her father King Henry VIII's death, until her death in 1603. Her reign, known as the Elizabethan Age, was marked by great prosperity and achievement in many fields. She inherited absolute sovereign power from her father, that is until she signed her way out of it. Ever since, England's royalty has been reduced to a limited monarchy. This famous portrait of Queen Elizabeth standing on a map of England was painted by M. Gheeraerts. It is housed in the National Portrait Gallery, in London..Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
