Did you know that Elizabeth I who wore vast amounts of pearls had a team of seamstresses dedicated entirely to sewing pearls onto her clothes?

In 1563 Queen Elizabeth I suggested Robert Dudley might marry her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots. Robert refused to marry Mary. He preferred to stay in England, close to Elizabeth.

If Queen Elizabeth I named either Catherine or Mary Grey as heir, there would be Protestants who supported Henry Hastings.

I do believe that Elizabeth was a tyrant and a monster and she kept avoiding responsibility for anything. She had her mother's relentless all consuming ambition and even Anne Boleyn was no saint. The way Anne persecuted Mary Tudor and Katherine of Aragon is in fact something that should never be glossed over. Elizabeth was just as persecutor towards Mary Queen of Scots as Anne was towards Katherine of Aragon. Elizabeth also tortured the Irish, tormented treason in Scotland, and was someone who refused to even name a successor in her last will and testament.

In 1579 arrangements began to be made for marrying Prince Francis, Duke of Alencon and Duke of Anjou, to Queen Elizabeth I. He was the only one of Elizabeth's foreign suitors to court her in person.

Elizabeth I's succession was met favorably and was announced swiftly. Less than half an hour after the official announcement of Mary I's demise on November 17, 1558, Parliament had confirmed Elizabeth as Mary's successor. On November 19 heralds proclaimed the Queen at the gates of Hatfield.

On attaining the throne, Queen Elizabeth dismissed many of the older Catholic ladies-in-waiting of the Court of Queen Mary I. Elizabeth I replaced them with friends and family closer to her own age. There was Anne Morgan (wife of Henry Carey, Lord Hunsdon), Anne Poyntz (wife of Sir Thomas Heneage), Lettice Knollys, and Elizabeth Fitzgerald.

I've always liked the name Lettice tehe does anyone know the background to this rather unusual name? I find it hard to not have even a small bit of admiration for women who lived so long ago and life for QEI must have been excrutiatingly difficult in so many ways! Just think of the treachery and scheming back then! Shocked Nope. I am happy to be alive at the moment. It's such a great time to be alive!!!

FrederickLouis you must have read quite a bit of books on royals to have such knowledge or do you use google search to share your finds with us?

Lettice, pronounced Leteece, is the English version of Letizia, AFAIK. Lettice Knollys blotted her copy book big time with Elizabeth I when she and the great love of Elizabeth's life, Robert Dudley, the Duke of Leicester, secretly married.

Queen Elizabeth I legislated for a Protestant church with the monarch at its head. She refused her father's title Head of the Church.
