#OTD Elizabeth I was born, today would be 487th birthday! Elizabeth has always been the woman I’ve most admired in history. She was fearless in the face of adversity and never wavered in the endless challenge of ruling during a time where women were often viewed as less important than a good hunting dog. Her privy council regularly rebelled against her and if she made a proposal they disliked, they would bicker like children. As queen, she would use dignity, diplomacy, tact and guile to make them understand she was the person in charge and not them.
Elizabeth was unique and incredible.
