The Elizabethan period of England is equated with the reign of Elizabeth I from 1558-1603. It is considered a Golden Age of English history.

History

Elizabeth gradually distanced herself from Spain in foreign policy. Religion proved a sticking point between the Catholic Spain and the Protestant Elizabeth. The two counries were soon at war, but a decisive victory over the Spanish Armada meant Spain no longer posed a threat to England.
