One would expect a worker of Elizabeth’s to support her, as they have known her for a long time and are supposed to treat her with respect. In a treatise written in 1602, William Clowes, Elizabeth’s personal surgeon, discusses the fact that everyone should pray to God that Elizabeth lives a long, healthy life. This viewpoint is also not surprising, based on the fact that Clowes is a personal worker of the Queen’s. Before and during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, many people turned to religion either to explain how women could

While Edward was in power, Queen Elizabeth I was allowed to live quietly; after Edward’s death in 1553, Mary became queen. Mary was a Roman Catholic, but Queen Elizabeth I was not a religious person; however, she understood Mary’s decision to marry the Catholic Prince Phillip II of Spain (Ellis). Later, while Phillip saw his wife childless and ill, he saw Queen Elizabeth I as a very suitable woman to assume the position of queen (Ellis).
