Elizabethan Era for Kids

Elizabeth I, William Shakespeare, the Spanish Armada & more!

Queen Elizabeth I, Shakespeare and the Spanish Armada are some examples why it is so fascinating to learn about the Elizabethan era for kids.

The Elizabethan Era saw one of the most fascinating monarchs in British history, Elizabeth I. Her father was the larger-than-life Henry VIII, who is famous for having six wives and changing the course of religion in England; her mother was the fiery and doomed Anne Boleyn, who was beheaded when Elizabeth was just two years old.

Elizabeth never married, famously saying she was married to her country, prompting the nickname The Virgin Queen. The Elizabethan era is often called the Golden Age. During this period, Queen Elizabeth I gained great popularity in England for her success against the invading Spanish Armada and was celebrated as a strong and powerful monarch. Not bad for someone who never expected to be queen after being declared illegitimate by her own father!
