that legend grew as her reign receded further and further into history. Many stories about this great Queen have been
told, but not all of them are true. Some of them have been accepted as true for generations, some perhaps we would want to be true.
Try and guess for yourself which legends are true and which are merely myth!

On the death of Thomas Seymour, Elizabeth whispered:"This day died a man of much wit, but very little judgement".
