Transcript of Government and Politics in the Elizabethan era

Government and Politics in the Elizabethan era
The Monarchy
Modern-day England has a constitutional monarchy. This means that the monarchy has no real power.

But in the Elizabethan era, the monarchy had all the power.
The Privy Council
The Privy Council was a group of people appointed by the Queen who were in charge of the general administration of the country.
The job of Parliament was to pass laws and provide the Queen with money when she needed it.
The government in the Elizabethan era was divided into three parts:
-The monarchy
-The Privy Council
International Politics
The English often joke that they are professionally paranoid, and a common theory amongst many of the English is that the word insular was created to describe them.

But they also envy all things foreign such as: French fashion, Spanish gold, Italian mannerisms, etc.

They have a long history with France, Germany and Spain.
The English hate the French.
This comes from centuries of fighting between the two countries
In the Elizabethan Era, Germany wasn't a country, but rather a group of countries that spoke the German language.

The English often used German mercenaries.

The English also hate the Spanish, except when they fight France together.

Mary Queen of Scots in her will, left England to Spain's King Philip. This was so King Philip could cause England to become Catholic again.
