Type of Government
Elizabethan England was a hereditary monarchy. This form of government is one in which the crown is passed down from one member of the royal family to another in circumstances. Like death, or resignation of the crown.
Royalty and government
Monarch:
the ruler of the land
a group selected by the monarch to help her rule
a group of people that represent
different social castes that pass laws and dictate financial matters
Privy Council:
Parliament:
Born on September 7, 1533 in Greenwich, England.
At the age of two, Elizabeth's mother was beheaded on the orders of her husband, based on (probably false) charges of adultery and conspiracy.
After her father's death years later, the crown was passed around from family member to family member until it landed in the lap of Elizabeth's older half sister.
Even though the Monarch does ALL of these jobs, he/she is NOT above the law and can still be prosecuted which could result in execution.
Fun fact: Queen Elizabeth has largely been remembered as being a queen who supported her people.
