The daughter of King Henry VIII and the fascinating Anne Boleyn was perhaps destined to become involved with a series of different men and suitors. As a woman Queen Elizabeth I revelled in the attention and adulation. But she was never really prepared to give up her power as the sole sovereign of England. Elizabeth was associated with English courtiers and foreign Kings and Princes. But she never married and throughout history would be referred to as the Virgin Queen.
