maybe i’m a goddamn bleeding heart hippie liberal but i’m totally down with paying an extra .50 cents for a thing of fries if the person who makes me those fries doesn’t have to work 3 jobs just to survive.
HISTORY MEME → [1/9] kings or queens; ELIZABETH I OF ENGLAND
Daughter of Henry VIII and his second wife Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth I of England was the last Tudor on the English Throne. Elizabeth inherited the throne in 1558 from her half-sister Mary I at the age of 25. She was commonly known as The Virgin Queen because Elizabeth never married, but was instead “married to her country.” During Elizabeth’s reign, she saw the defeat of Phillip II of Spain’s Spanish Armada in 1588. Her reign is also regarded as the “Golden Age.” Elizabeth died in 1603.
