Today In History: Happy Birthday Elizabeth I

Happy birthday Elizabeth I aka "Gloriana". 478 years later and the people still love you. September 7th 1533 will always be your day.
"There is no marvel in a woman learning to speak, but there would be in teaching her to hold her tongue"
— Elizabeth I


  1. She sure did leave her mark on history.

  2. Pricilla, that is for sure and there will never be another like her either. She is defiantly a woman I can admire for not just her strength but her courage too.

    Allison, no kidding she sure was fierce at times just like both of her parents.

    Carole Rae, I second that happy birthday Elizabeth.

  3. That is quite the quote by it!

    And happy birthday to her also!

  4. Jo-Jo, I think that one is one of my favorite quotes because it speaks volumes of Elizabeth's character. She is the ultimate example of self control.

  5. Oooo I've never seen this painting. Where did you find it?

  6. I found it on a history blog but now I can not find it, I thought I book marked it. If I find it I will post the link.
