The Tudors Workbook 6
This sixth workbook looks at the second part of the reign of Elizabeth I from 1570 to 1603. It covers how Elizabeth dealt with plots against her life and what happened in the end to Mary, Queen of Scots. It also looks at the war with Spain and the defeat of the Spanish Armada. Another problem which Elizabeth faced was trouble in Ireland, which has plagued the British Isles right up until the present day. Finally, we look at the end of the Elizabethan age and the impact that it had on the subsequent development of the British Empire and what became known as the United States of America.

From 1570 to her death in 1603, Queen Elizabeth I reigned over a country that was rapidly developing from a small group of islands off the coast of Europe to a world-wide trading power and, ultimately, an extensive empire. It was during this time that the foundations of the expansion into the New World were laid. Little England defeated one of the world powers of the era, Spain, and began to establish British sea power across the globe. Elizabeth weathered various plots against her life, but was distressed by the execution of her cousin, Mary. Finally, Elizabeth did not solve the problems in Ireland, which were to plague the United Kingdom for centuries to come.
