Happy 482nd Birthday, Queen Elizabeth I!
Elizabeth Tudor found her way into my life long ago as a child, something which I believe was no accident.
She continues to inspire me on a daily basis, for which I am eternally grateful.
It is my mission in life to teach others about the remarkable Queen Elizabeth I, and to get others excited about history.
Thank you for sharing in this journey with me.
