Though the Queen Died, Her Shrewd Policies Gave Birth to English Colonial Rule

The lure of new oceans, the availability of unspoiled forests plump with resources and islands bursting with spices brought several European powers to exploit, but Queen Elizabeth I’s shrewd politicking and her ability to enlist the services of her nation’s most capable and loyal subjects enabled her to build British powers like no other time in history. During her reign, England mastered her ships, the seas and naval warfare, enabling the English to later overtake the Dutch along the Atlantic Coast. Had they not achieved this feat, New York would still be New Amsterdam.
