In GCSE History, as a part of their learning the history of Britain, students will be taught about Elizabethan England. One aspect of this is Elizabeth's accession to the throne and her possible marriage.
Elizabeth's accession to the throne in 1558 marked the beginning of Elizabethan England. She was an unmarried woman, and she died in 1603 still unmarried. If she married an Englishman she risked alienating his rivals. Likewise if she married a foreigner, she risked upsetting other potential foreign suitors.
