Queen Elizabeth I was the Queen of England during the England Renaissance
She inherited a judicial system that would punish people cruelly for their crimes
Many people described this renaissance time period as brutal and cruel
Queen Elizabeth I
Minor crime and punishment in small Elizabethan towns were dealt with by the Justice of the Peace.
Because most punishments were so brutal, many people of this time described the renaissance as “the time of severe punishment and harsh torture”.
Elizabethan England was split into three classes based on royalty: The Upper Class, The Nobility, and everyone else
The Upper class were well educated, wealthy and associated with Royalty and high members of the clergy. They would often become involved in Political intrigue and matters of Religion.
The nobility could therefore become involved in crime which were not shared by other people.
Many crimes committed by commoners were through sheer desperation and extreme poverty.
