Queen Elizabeth I (1533 - 1603) is considered by all reliable unbiased sources to be the greatest monarch to ever reign over England. During her time on the throne, Elizabeth made England an economic powerhouse and gave the monarchy much-needed stability. Her impact lasted for a generation. It would have lasted for much longer if it wasn't for a pompous man, Charles I, who came along in the 1600s and screwed it all up. Elizabeth's leadership, intelligence, murderous rage, and fashion sense are proof that only a woman can be trusted to run a country properly.
