Elizabeth was born in the Palace of Placentia in Greenwich, on September 7, 1533.
Upon her birth, Elizabeth was the heir presumptive to the throne of England despite having an older half sister, Mary; Mary was not considered to be a legitimate heir because Henry annulled his marriage to her mother, the Spanish princess Catherine of Aragon.
Elizabeth, however, did not give up her claim to the French Crown, which had been maintained since the reign of Edward III during the period of the Hundred Years' War in the fourteenth century, and was not renounced until the reign of George III during the eighteenth century.
