Antique dealers say it a lot as do scholars studying literature, for it was during Queen Elizabeth I’s reign that the literary field blossomed and writers began to flourish. During the time of her reign (1558-1603) the oppressive Middle Ages broke down, leaving societies ready to express themselves openly through intellectual conversation, art, poetry, spirituality and literature, as well as through world exploration. Queen Elizabeth I is also known as the Queen who signed the death warrant of her cousin Mary, Queen of Scots.
