"I would rather be a beggar and single than a queen and married."
Elizabeth I, born the 7th of September 1533, died 24th of March 1603 of King Henry VIII and his second Queen, Anne Boleyn, is even today viewed by many as being England's greatest monarch.
This journal will mainly focus on the events of Elizabeth Tudor's life as covered in Shekhar Kapur's 1998 films, 'Elizabeth' and its sequel, 'Elizabeth: The Golden Age' released in 2007. The PB for is Cate Blanchett, who played the lead role of Elizabeth I in both films. There is, according to Shekhar Kapur, a third movie that is planned.
Elizabeth is open for RP, but will be kept as close to film and / or historical canon as much as possible.
