Elizabeth I is born!

On this day in history, 7th September 1533, Queen Anne Boleyn gave birth to the Princess Elizabeth at Greenwich palace. Both Henry and Anne were dissapointed that their child was not the Prince that they were hoping for, and the birth announcement letters were hastily changed to add an S onto the end of "Prince". However neither Anne or Henry realised that their little girl would grow up to be one of the greatest monarchs that England has ever known, despite the many hardships that she would face as a child - losing her mother, being made illigitimate, having scandal forced upon her by Thomas Seymour and being locked up in the Tower by her own sister!
