Internet History Sourcebooks: Queen Elizabeth I of England (b. 1533, r. 1558-1603) Selected Writing and Speeches

BWIR's insight:

The website "Modern History Sourcebook: Queen Elizabeth I of Englad" is a section from Paul Halsall's excellent website Internet Modern History Sourcebook, which has been devised to provide free online access to primary source texts. This particular section of the sourcebook provides a selection of Elizabeth I's writing and speeches, spanning the years of her reign, from 1558 until 1603. Seven extracts have been selected, and they include the response to a parliamentary delegation on her marriage, a speech on religion, the response to King Erik of Sweden's marriage proposal, another later response to a parliamentary delegation on her marriage, another later speech on religion, her response to the Polish Ambassador who had criticised her actions in regards to the Spanish monarchy, and her famous 'farewell' Golden Speech to parliament in 1601. This is a useful resource for those studying Tudor and Elizabethan history[Intute]

Conflict (Introduction - The University of Nottingham)

BWIR's insight:

Using original documents... "Conflict" web site focuses upon three specific periods of military conflict in British and American history - the invasion of England by William of Orange in 1688 ("The Glorious Revolution"); the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745; and the American War of Independence (1773-1789). Originally a printed set of history teaching packs for secondary schools and university undergraduates produced by the University of Nottingham, these learning materials are based on papers from the archives of the University Manuscripts and Special Collections Library...

BWIR's insight:

This website has been created by a postgraduate student of Elizabethan history, with the aim of providing educational information on the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The content is aimed at the general public rather than academic scholars and as a result provides a narrative history useful for those wanting to obtain an overview of late sixteenth century England and the life of Elizabeth Tudor.

Lady Jane Grey Reference Guide

BWIR's insight:

This website aims 'to provide a guide to the location of information about Lady Jane Grey the nine days queen, including primary accounts, paintings, her own writings, legends, media representations and a general bibliography'. Lady Jane Grey reigned for only nine days, after the death of Edward VI in 1533 and before Mary Tudor succeeded to the throne. Upon Mary's seizing of power, Lady Grey was imprisoned in the Tower of London and eventually executed. This website presents biographical information of Lady Grey, primary accounts, a blog on nine-day-queen-related issues, various links to other relevant websites, a time-line of events, and a quite substantive bibliography. The website is easy to navigate and will be of use to anyone with an interest in the issues of Protestant succession in the British Isles, the Tudor dynasty, or Medieval/Early Modern British history in general
