Posted By claire on January 15, 2012

On the 15th January 1559, a day chosen by her astrologer Dr John Dee, a triumphant Elizabeth Tudor, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, processed from Westminster Hall into Westminster Abbey to be crowned queen. She was just 25 years old and was the third child of Henry VIII to become monarch and was the longest reigning of them, ruling England for over 44 years.
