The paper describes how Queen Elizabeth I was a genius, a beauty, a leader and a manipulator that mesmerized and charmed her public for centuries. The paper focuses on her qualities of knowing how to use good advice, her shrewdness and her coldness.
From the Paper:"Queen Elizabeth I won the love of her people though she stepped to the throne through the blood of the people split by Tudor hands . She kept their love, though she tricked and defied both her noblemen and her common people--kept their love even in the last dark pathetic days of her reign when, as a painted, raddled harridan, tried to hold the love of young men--and then sent them to their doom. To the love of her people Elizabeth clung; it was the only true love she ever knew--she, the world's most courted woman. She came to the throne in her twenty-fifth year, beautiful, young, brilliant and hardheaded. People might question the legitimacy of her birth--quibble whether the annulment that set aside Catherine of Aragon's marriage and made Anne Boleyn the lawful queen were worth the paper it was written on--but none would deny that Elizabeth the child of that second union, was Henry Vlll's daughter. Even more than the red-gold tint of her hair, the blue eyes, and fresh, fair skin, which were the physical characteristics he handed on to this despised daughter of his, she inherited his shrewd, quick brain, his imperiousness, his grasp of statesmanship, his love of learning, his cold egotism, and, it must be admitted, his complete lack of scruples (Hibbert, 1999). She added to these characteristics all the feminine wiles and artifices natural to a daughter of Anne Boleyn ."
