  16. 16. Was Elizabeth’s Reign Really a golden Age?<br />Elizabeth I, Queen of England was the first English ruler to really grasp the concept of what her subjects needed. I do, in fact, believe that her lengthy reign did produce what could be considered a golden age. The only falling out with her people the Queen ever had was when she executed Mary, Queen of Scots. Even though it outraged many Catholics who viewed Mary as the rightful Queen of England, it was something that had to be done for the safety of Elizabeth. That being said, it took countless advisors pressuring her to even convince Elizabeth to execute her cousin, a fact that probably brought her back into the favor of many of her subjects.<br />Another point that supports my argument would be the number of allies that England made during Elizabeth’s reign. Not only did she create an alliance with the French, but the Dutch as well. Throughout her reign all she did was bring wealth and respect to the kingdom, which she was quite devoted to. Known as the Virgin Queen, she claimed she was already married to one man, and that was the Kingdom of England. A final point I’d like to make is that thanks to her charter in 1600, the East India Company was formed, which became a huge part of colonial life as more and more colonies formed in the new world. <br />
