    • found: Wikipedia, June 1, 2015 (Elizabeth I; born 7 September 1533 in the Palace of Placentia, Greenwich, England; died 24 March 1603 in Richmond Palace, Surrey, England; Queen of England and Ireland from 17 November 1558 until her death. Sometimes called The Virgin Queen, Gloriana or Good Queen Bess, the childless Elizabeth was the fifth and last monarch of the Tudor dynasty. Elizabeth's reign is known as the Elizabethan era. The period is famous for the flourishing of English drama, led by playwrights such as William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe, and for the seafaring prowess of English adventurers such as Francis Drake. England's defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 associated Elizabeth with one of the greatest military victories in English history. Her 44 years on the throne provided welcome stability for the kingdom and helped forge a sense of national identity.) {}
