Elizabeth II born 21 April has held numerous titles and honours, both during and before her time as monarch of each of her Commonwealth realms. Each is listed below; where two dates are shown, the first indicates the date of receiving the title or award the title as Princess Elizabeth of York being given as from her birthand the second indicates the date of its loss or renunciation.
Upon Elizabeth's accession to the throne, she was asked by her Private Secretary what her regnal name would be, to which she responded, "My own, of course—what else? A decision was reached by Elizabeth's prime ministers at the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Conference ofwhereby the Queen would accord herself different styles and titles in each of her realms, reflecting that in each state she acted as monarch of that particular country,  regardless of her other roles.
Thereafter, separate but parallel royal styles and titles acts were passed in each of the Commonwealth realmsgranting Elizabeth a distinct but similarly constituted title in each state,  meaning that when Elizabeth was crowned in the same year, she held seven separate titles.
With further evolution of the Commonwealth since that time, Elizabeth now holds 16 different regnal titles, one for each of the current Commonwealth realms. In all realms other than Canada and Grenada, the reference to the United Kingdom has been removed; Australia doing so in in contrast to the Australian government's position 20 years earlier. Traditionally, the Queen's titles are listed in the order in which the realms other than the United Kingdom the original realm first became Dominions —namely, CanadaAustraliaand New Zealand —followed by the rest in the order in which the former colony became an independent realm: JamaicaBarbadosThe BahamasGrenadaPapua New Guineathe Solomon IslandsTuvaluSaint LuciaSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesBelizeAntigua and Barbuda and Saint Kitts and Nevis Though the situation was the same in every one of the Queen's realms beyond the United Kingdom, only within Scotland did the title Elizabeth II cause controversy as there had never been an Elizabeth I in Scotland.

A legal case, MacCormick v. The case, however, was lost on the grounds that the pursuers had not title to sue the Crown and the numbering of monarchs was part of the Royal Prerogativeand thus not governed by the Act of Union. It was suggested by Winston Churchill that future British monarchs should be numbered according to either their English or Scottish predecessors, whichever number is higher. At the opening ceremony of the devolved Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh inattended by the Queen, the Presiding Officer Lord Steel said at the close of his opening address: "It is good that today, once again, we the elected representatives of the people are able to welcome your majesty, not only as Queen of the United Kingdom, but seated as you are among us, to greet you in the historic and constitutionally correct manner, with warmth and affection, as Queen of Scots.
Since ascending the throne, the Queen has not accepted honorary degrees, as that would technically place her under the jurisdiction of the chancellor of whichever university had bestowed the degree, a position deemed unsuitable for a reigning monarch.

Canberra: Commonwealth Government Printer.Elizabeth Ibynames the Virgin Queen and Good Queen Bessborn September 7,Greenwichnear London, England—died March 24,Richmond, Surreyqueen of England — during a period, often called the Elizabethan Age, when England asserted itself vigorously as a major European power in politics, commerce, and the arts.
Suspicious that her half-sister would try to seize power, Mary placed Elizabeth under what amounted to constant surveillance, even jailing her in the Tower of London for a short period of time. This broke with the policy of her predecessor and half-sister, Queen Mary Ia Catholic monarch who ruthlessly tried to eliminate Protestantism from English society. Elizabeth undertook her own campaign to suppress Catholicism in England, although hers was more moderate and less bloody than the one enacted by Mary.
Her religious policies, such as the Act of Supremacy and the Act of Uniformity, went a lot further to consolidate the power of the church under her and to regularize the practice of the faith. When Elizabeth was three years old, Henry had Anne beheaded and their marriage declared invalid, thus rendering Elizabeth an illegitimate child and removing her from the line of succession to which Parliament would later restore her.
When Elizabeth was crowned monarch inher lack of a husband and heir became one of the defining issues for the remainder of her rule. As the end of her life approached, she forestalled the successional crisis that might otherwise have arisen by designating King James VI of Scotland as the next in line to the throne. The rule of the Tudor dynasty ended with the death of Elizabeth.
For the most part, Elizabeth I was a popular queen, both during and after her lifetime. The admiration Elizabeth I garnered had a lot to do with her skills as a rhetorician and an image-maker, which she used to style herself as a magnificent female authority figure devoted to the well-being of England and its subjects above all else.
Her public image also suffered in the last decade of her reign, when England was pressed by issues including scant harvestsunemploymentand economic inflation. The adulation bestowed upon her both in her lifetime and in the ensuing centuries was not altogether a spontaneous effusion.
This political symbolismcommon to monarchies, had more substance than usual, for the queen was by no means a mere figurehead. While she did not wield the absolute power of which Renaissance rulers dreamed, she tenaciously upheld her authority to make critical decisions and to set the central policies of both state and church. The latter half of the 16th century in England is justly called the Elizabethan Age: rarely has the collective life of a whole era been given so distinctively personal a stamp.
Henry had defied the pope and broken England from the authority of the Roman Catholic Church in order to dissolve his marriage with his first wife, Catherine of Aragonwho had borne him a daughter, Mary.
Before Elizabeth reached her third birthday, her father had her mother beheaded on charges of adultery and treason.
Apparently, the king was undeterred by the logical inconsistency of simultaneously invalidating the marriage and accusing his wife of adultery. The emotional impact of these events on the little girl, who had been brought up from infancy in a separate household at Hatfield, is not known; presumably, no one thought it worth recording.
What was noted was her precocious seriousness; at six years old, it was admiringly observed, she had as much gravity as if she had been Despite his capacity for monstrous cruelty, Henry VIII treated all his children with what contemporaries regarded as affection; Elizabeth was present at ceremonial occasions and was declared third in line to the throne. Under a series of distinguished tutors, of whom the best known is the Cambridge humanist Roger AschamElizabeth received the rigorous education normally reserved for male heirs, consisting of a course of studies centring on classical languages, history, rhetoricand moral philosophy.
Thus steeped in the secular learning of the Renaissance, the quick-witted and intellectually serious princess also studied theology, imbibing the tenets of English Protestantism in its formative period. Her guardian, the dowager queen Catherine Parr, almost immediately married Thomas Seymourthe lord high admiral.
In Januaryshortly after the death of Catherine Parr, Thomas Seymour was arrested for treason and accused of plotting to marry Elizabeth in order to rule the kingdom. Repeated interrogations of Elizabeth and her servants led to the charge that even when his wife was alive Seymour had on several occasions behaved in a flirtatious and overly familiar manner toward the young princess.
Under humiliating close questioning and in some danger, Elizabeth was extraordinarily circumspect and poised. When she was told that Seymour had been beheaded, she betrayed no emotion.

Mary has just been visited by the angel Gabriel and told that she will bear a son, Jesus, who will "be great and will be called the Son of the Most High," and heir to the ancient throne of David. She has been told that the Holy Spirit will conceive in her -- a virgin -- this child. And she has assented: "I am the handmaiden of the Lord.
May it be to me as you have said.
Mary is confused -- at least you would be if you were Mary. Who can she talk to about this? Her mother? Her rabbi?
The only person she knows who will be able to understand her is relative Elizabeth. The angel has told Mary: "Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God. And so Mary hurriedly prepares for a trip to see Elizabeth. The Greek uses the noun spoudewhich can mean "haste, speed," but also can carry the idea of "eagerness, diligence, enthusiasm, zeal.
But still, she is just a young teenager, and this is pretty overwhelming. She needs steadying, guidance. But she is probably eager, as well. This whole experience can't help but be exciting.
We don't know the name of the town where Elizabeth and Zechariah lived. Guesses at the identity of the town include Jutta, about five miles south of Hebron in Edomite territory, and Ain Karim, five miles from Jerusalem, considered the traditional site since the sixth century. Now she seeks out Zechariah's home in the tiny village, and greets her kinswoman Elizabeth.
It the town is near Jerusalem, it's likely that Mary has visited here before when her family has come to Jerusalem for Passover or another feast day. Elizabeth, now six months pregnant, comes to the door and sees her niece. She hasn't expected her, but now Mary greets her. The Greek word is aspazomai"greet. This word of peace, when received, functions like a powerful blessing upon the householder.
While we don't know the greeting Mary brings to Elizabeth, it had an effect so powerful that Elizabeth is filled with the Holy Spirit, and begins to speak out prophetically. John the Baptist, in Elizabeth's womb, also responds to the presence of the Messiah inside of Mary. Elizabeth interprets this stirring within her as motivated by joy -- and why not?
That is how the Angel saw it: "I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people" Elizabeth's response is anything but quiet and reserved. Our passage mentions her loudness. The text says that "she cried out anaphoneo with a loud megas cry krauge. I see Elizabeth embracing young Mary, and almost shrieking in joy.
But her greeting is more than loud, it is spiritual and Spirit-filled.
