She wasn’t supposed to be Queen Elizabeth's father was the infamous King Henry VIII. For those who don't know, King Henry VIII had many wives and mistresses, which led to a bit of confusion as to who was going to be on the throne when his time came. However, by the time of his, he had finally gotten a son in the form of Edward, who despite only being 10-years-old at the time, became the King. 9. She praised her mother in secret Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry’s second wife, Anne Boleyn. But before becoming the kings wife she had become his mistress and the people of England were not excited about their relationship. Because the king was married to Katherine at the time before he shunned her off to a nunnery, they labeled her the "Great Wh**e" because of her time with King Henry VIII. 8. She had her faults Queen Elizabeth is praised as one of the greatest queens of England, Wales, and Ireland that history has ever seen. She reigned for 44 years, demonstrating not only that she lived for a long time, but also that means that she wasn’t overthrown or deposed (she died in her bed after falling ill). 7. She was a virgin for a reason In the ancient days of kings and queens, monarchs had to marry to secure the bloodline and ensure a true rite of succession (which was almost always a problem back then). But with Queen Elizabeth I, things changed. Whether tempered by the acts of her father, or just not wanting to give up power to a man, she never married, nor did she ever have a child. Over time she was called "The Virgin Queen", which signified her pure status and love for her country. 6. The Last Tudor The one truly major downside to her not having children or a husband was that Queen Elizabeth I was well and truly the last of her house: The Tudors. This house began with King Henry The VII in 1485, and when Queen Elizabeth died in 1603, her entire family line ended. 5. Queen Elizabeth loved sugar...a lot It may seem odd in the world we live in now, but back in the olden days, things like sugar was a commodity that could only be afforded by the rich. Such as the Queen of England. And in fact, Queen Elizabeth was a bit notorious in certain circles for her sweet tooth. 4. Multilingual One of the reasons that Queen Elizabeth I was such a great leader was because she understood how to deal with other countries, whether they be allies, foes, or something in between. Her Royal Court and advisors were also instrumental during these occasions, however, Elizabeth was never afraid to deal with things herself. To that end, she learned many languages so that she could communicate with other dignitaries from other countries herself. 3. She cared about the poor Elizabeth was praised among both the higher class and lower class citizens for her reign. She was tough at times, but also fair, and she definitely knew when her country was struggling with one thing or another. For example, she knew that the lower class people were suffering, and so to help ease their pain, she would help them by giving them food. 2. It took her hours to get ready Queen Elizabeth loved her appearance, as shown by how she dressed, and how she made sure she looked good in portraits. But when it came to her simply getting ready in the morning or ready for bed, it took a very long time. 1. She died of sadness In Elizabeth’s time, medicine could only do so much and people died of all kinds of thing. And of course kings and queens were no different. For Elizabeth, it is said that her was a more an emotional one, for in the course of a few years, she lost many different friends, family members, and advisors of whom she had a very close connection to.

Famous actors who can't find work in Hollywood anymore. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/Hnoaw3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- They say that Hollywood is a small time, and that means making enemies can spell the end of your career. Being nominated for an Oscar should be a career highlight, but for Mo’nique it lead to her being totally blacklisted. Josh Hartnett was once a Hollywood heartthrob, but he said no to the wrong director and quietly disappeared from acting. On the other hand, Charlie Sheen definitely didn’t go quietly when he was fired from Two and a Half Men! Both directors and cast members couldn’t stand working with Katherine Heigl, and her name even became a slang term for someone difficult to get along with. Are you a fan of any of these celebrities?

A friendship that became a rivalry. A rivalry that became a war. Watch Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie in the new trailer for #MaryQueenofScots.
"Mary Queen of Scots" explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Ronan). Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Robbie). Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
