After Elizabeth was announced Queen of England the outrage shot out from all over the country. Her cousins were claiming England was theirs, and men all over the nation wanted to marry her but Elizabeth remained put. She held tightly to her throne and started to rebuild, reshape, and remodel England. The first thing she did was establish a royal government. Elizabeth thought with a wise mind, heard with attentive ears and prayed with a mighty soul. The Queen expected her people to remain obedient and loyal to her. The people did not find that to be a challenge since she was faithful and fair to all.
