My loving people, we have been persuaded by some that are careful of our safety, to take heed how we commit ourself to armed multitudes for fear of treachery; but I assure you, I do not desire to live to distrust my faithful and loving people I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a King of England too, and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain, or any Prince of Europe should dare to invade the borders of my realm.
When no invasion came, the nation rejoiced. Elizabeth's procession to a thanksgiving service at St Paul's Cathedral rivalled that of her coronation as a spectacle.
The English took their delivery as a symbol of God's favour and of the nation's inviolability under a virgin queen.
If the late queen would have believed her men of war as she did her scribes, we had in her time beaten that great empire in pieces and made their kings of figs and oranges as in old times.
But her Majesty did all by halves, and by petty invasions taught the Spaniard how to defend himself, and to see his own weakness.
Though some historians have criticised Elizabeth on similar grounds,  Raleigh's verdict has more often been judged unfair.
Elizabeth had good reason not to place too much trust in her commanders, who once in action tended, as she put it herself, "to be transported with an haviour of vainglory".
The English fleet suffered a catastrophic defeat with 11,—15, killed, wounded or died of disease    and 40 ships sunk or captured.
It was her first venture into France since the retreat from Le Havre in Henry's succession was strongly contested by the Catholic League and by Philip II, and Elizabeth feared a Spanish takeover of the channel ports.
The subsequent English campaigns in France, however, were disorganised and ineffective. He withdrew in disarray in December , having lost half his troops.
In , the campaign of John Norreys , who led 3, men to Brittany , was even more of a disaster. As for all such expeditions, Elizabeth was unwilling to invest in the supplies and reinforcements requested by the commanders.
Norreys left for London to plead in person for more support. In his absence, a Catholic League army almost destroyed the remains of his army at Craon , north-west France, in May The result was just as dismal.
Essex accomplished nothing and returned home in January Henry abandoned the siege in April. Although Ireland was one of her two kingdoms, Elizabeth faced a hostile, and in places virtually autonomous,  Irish population that adhered to Catholicism and was willing to defy her authority and plot with her enemies.
Her policy there was to grant land to her courtiers and prevent the rebels from giving Spain a base from which to attack England.
During a revolt in Munster led by Gerald FitzGerald, 15th Earl of Desmond , in , an estimated 30, Irish people starved to death.
The poet and colonist Edmund Spenser wrote that the victims "were brought to such wretchedness as that any stony heart would have rued the same".
Between and , Elizabeth faced her most severe test in Ireland during the Nine Years' War , a revolt that took place at the height of hostilities with Spain , who backed the rebel leader, Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone.
To her frustration,  he made little progress and returned to England in defiance of her orders. He was replaced by Charles Blount, Lord Mountjoy , who took three years to defeat the rebels.
O'Neill finally surrendered in , a few days after Elizabeth's death. Elizabeth continued to maintain the diplomatic relations with the Tsardom of Russia that were originally established by her half-brother, Edward VI.
She often wrote to Ivan the Terrible on amicable terms, though the Tsar was often annoyed by her focus on commerce rather than on the possibility of a military alliance.
The Tsar even proposed to her once, and during his later reign, asked for a guarantee to be granted asylum in England should his rule be jeopardised.
Unlike his father, Feodor had no enthusiasm in maintaining exclusive trading rights with England. Feodor declared his kingdom open to all foreigners, and dismissed the English ambassador Sir Jerome Bowes , whose pomposity had been tolerated by Ivan.
Elizabeth sent a new ambassador, Dr. Giles Fletcher, to demand from the regent Boris Godunov that he convince the Tsar to reconsider.
The negotiations failed, due to Fletcher addressing Feodor with two of his many titles omitted. Elizabeth continued to appeal to Feodor in half appealing, half reproachful letters.
She proposed an alliance, something which she had refused to do when offered one by Feodor's father, but was turned down.
Trade and diplomatic relations developed between England and the Barbary states during the rule of Elizabeth. Diplomatic relations were also established with the Ottoman Empire with the chartering of the Levant Company and the dispatch of the first English ambassador to the Porte , William Harborne , in In , Sir Humphrey Gilbert sailed west to establish a colony on Newfoundland.
He never returned to England. This territory was much larger than the present-day state of Virginia; it included West Virginia , Maryland , and the Carolinas.
In , Raleigh returned to Virginia with a small group of people. They landed on the island of Roanoke , off present-day North Carolina.
After the failure of the first colony, Raleigh recruited another group and put John White in command. When Raleigh returned in , there was no trace of the Roanoke Colony he had left, but it was the first English Settlement in North America.
For a period of 15 years, the company was awarded a monopoly on English trade with all countries East of the Cape of Good Hope and West of the Straits of Magellan.
Sir James Lancaster commanded the first expedition in The Company eventually controlled half of world trade and substantial territory in India in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The period after the defeat of the Spanish Armada in brought new difficulties for Elizabeth that lasted until the end of her reign.
Prices rose and the standard of living fell. One of the causes for this "second reign" of Elizabeth, as it is sometimes called,  was the changed character of Elizabeth's governing body, the privy council in the s.
A new generation was in power. With the exception of Lord Burghley, the most important politicians had died around the Earl of Leicester in ; Sir Francis Walsingham in ; and Sir Christopher Hatton in Lopez, her trusted physician.
When he was wrongly accused by the Earl of Essex of treason out of personal pique, she could not prevent his execution, although she had been angry about his arrest and seems not to have believed in his guilt.
During the last years of her reign, Elizabeth came to rely on the granting of monopolies as a cost-free system of patronage, rather than asking Parliament for more subsidies in a time of war.
Who keeps their sovereign from the lapse of error, in which, by ignorance and not by intent they might have fallen, what thank they deserve, we know, though you may guess.
And as nothing is more dear to us than the loving conservation of our subjects' hearts, what an undeserved doubt might we have incurred if the abusers of our liberality, the thrallers of our people, the wringers of the poor, had not been told us!
This same period of economic and political uncertainty, however, produced an unsurpassed literary flowering in England. During the s, some of the great names of English literature entered their maturity, including William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe.
During this period and into the Jacobean era that followed, the English theatre reached its highest peaks. They owed little directly to the queen, who was never a major patron of the arts.
As Elizabeth aged her image gradually changed. Elizabeth gave Edmund Spenser a pension, as this was unusual for her, it indicates that she liked his work.
In fact, her skin had been scarred by smallpox in , leaving her half bald and dependent on wigs and cosmetics. Many of them are missing, so that one cannot understand her easily when she speaks quickly.
The more Elizabeth's beauty faded, the more her courtiers praised it. She became fond and indulgent of the charming but petulant young Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, who was Leicester's stepson and took liberties with her for which she forgave him.
After Essex's desertion of his command in Ireland in , Elizabeth had him placed under house arrest and the following year deprived him of his monopolies.
He intended to seize the queen but few rallied to his support, and he was beheaded on 25 February.
Elizabeth knew that her own misjudgements were partly to blame for this turn of events. An observer wrote in "Her delight is to sit in the dark, and sometimes with shedding tears to bewail Essex.
His political mantle passed to his son, Robert Cecil , who soon became the leader of the government. Since Elizabeth would never name her successor, Cecil was obliged to proceed in secret.
James's tone delighted Elizabeth, who responded: "So trust I that you will not doubt but that your last letters are so acceptably taken as my thanks cannot be lacking for the same, but yield them to you in grateful sort".
Neale's view, Elizabeth may not have declared her wishes openly to James, but she made them known with "unmistakable if veiled phrases".
The Queen's health remained fair until the autumn of , when a series of deaths among her friends plunged her into a severe depression.
In February , the death of Catherine Carey, Countess of Nottingham , the niece of her cousin and close friend Lady Knollys , came as a particular blow.
In March, Elizabeth fell sick and remained in a "settled and unremovable melancholy", and sat motionless on a cushion for hours on end.
A few hours later, Cecil and the council set their plans in motion and proclaimed James King of England. While it has become normative to record the death of the Queen as occurring in , following English calendar reform in the s, at the time England observed New Year's Day on 25 March, commonly known as Lady Day.
Thus Elizabeth died on the last day of the year in the old calendar. The modern convention is to use the old calendar for the date and month while using the new for the year.
Elizabeth's coffin was carried downriver at night to Whitehall , on a barge lit with torches.
At her funeral on 28 April, the coffin was taken to Westminster Abbey on a hearse drawn by four horses hung with black velvet.
In the words of the chronicler John Stow :. Westminster was surcharged with multitudes of all sorts of people in their streets, houses, windows, leads and gutters, that came out to see the obsequy , and when they beheld her statue lying upon the coffin, there was such a general sighing, groaning and weeping as the like hath not been seen or known in the memory of man.
Elizabeth was interred in Westminster Abbey, in a tomb shared with her half-sister, Mary I. Elizabeth was lamented by many of her subjects, but others were relieved at her death.
James was depicted as a Catholic sympathiser, presiding over a corrupt court. Godfrey Goodman , Bishop of Gloucester, recalled: "When we had experience of a Scottish government, the Queen did seem to revive.
Then was her memory much magnified. The picture of Elizabeth painted by her Protestant admirers of the early 17th century has proved lasting and influential.
Neale and A. Rowse , interpreted Elizabeth's reign as a golden age of progress. Recent historians, however, have taken a more complicated view of Elizabeth.
She offered very limited aid to foreign Protestants and failed to provide her commanders with the funds to make a difference abroad.
Elizabeth established an English church that helped shape a national identity and remains in place today. Though Elizabeth followed a largely defensive foreign policy, her reign raised England's status abroad.
Some historians have called her lucky;  she believed that God was protecting her. The love of my people hath appeared firm, and the devices of my enemies frustrate.

Traditionally, the Queen's Trooping the Colour birthday parade is a televised event held at Buckingham Palace.
This year, the celebration included a "military ceremony" at the castle's grounds, and no other royal family members were in attendance.
It's reportedly only the second time in the history of the Queen's reign that the traditional Trooping the Colour parade has been canceled.
