The paper first provides some preliminary background information on the person of Elizabeth herself. It then discusses Elizabeth's ascendance to the throne by examining the Tudor succession-particularly in its religious aspects-beginning with the life of Henry VIII. The essay proceeds by following this religious thread into Elizabeth's reign by treating the Northern Rebellion.

From the Paper:

"King Henry VIII of England, known most famously for his many wives, managed only three children who survived past infancy. Elizabeth was the second of these children, born on 7 September, 1533 to Henry's second wife, Anne Boleyn. In personality, Elizabeth is said to have been charismatic and flirtatious, traits that would serve her well in her eventual rule. In her early life, Elizabeth was strongly influenced by a few individuals. For example, Katherine Champernowne, was Elizabeth's second governess with whom she developed a close personal relationship that lasted into Elizabeth's reign. Additionally, Anne Boleyn entrusted Matthew Parker to Elizabeth's spiritual wellbeing before Boleyn's death, and Parker retained a special interest in Elizabeth for some years afterward."
