Civic Struggle

  • Elizabeth’s father, Henry VII was searching for a wife that would bear him a son. Because Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth’s mother, did not she was beheaded. Henry had as many as six wives, and out of those he got three children. Edward, Mary, and Elizabeth.

  • After Henry died in January of 1547, Edward became king. But he was a weak ruler, and died after only a year of ruling.

  • Mary, Elizabeth’s older half-sister became Queen after that. Mary was always jealous of Elizabeth and treated her cruelly.

  • It would seem that Mary was pregnant, but upon her death she had no child, and many historians believe that what was actually inside of her was a large ovarian cyst.
