  Elizabeth I
Elizabeth was sent away from court, as she was a reminder to Henry of Anne.
Because Elizabeth was a daughter of the late King Henry VIII, she was in line to the throne (despite several attempts to remove her from the chain, she was in Henry's will as an heir) and was therefore a most sought-after bride.
Elizabeth died on March 24, 1603 at Richmond Palace and was succeeded by James I (James VI of Scotland), the son of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Elizabeth's first few years are shaky as she is not versed with the art of realpolitik and "rules from the heart instead of the mind".
Elizabeth's climb to power, however, is a personal disaster: the supple-waisted maiden with long red hair becomes stiff and harsh, emerging from her youth white-faced and trapped in the armor of a thick brocade dress.

 Elizabeth's Home Page
Elizabeth can be thought of as an adaptation of Joseph Weizenbaum's ELIZA program, in which the various selection, substitution, and phrase storage mechanisms have been enhanced and generalised to increase both its flexibility and its potential adaptability.
The current version of Elizabeth is 2.01, released March 2003, a relatively minor development from 2.0 (January 2003) which incorporated a number of very significant improvements over previous versions.
Scripts produced on earlier versions (1.0 and 1.1) cannot be guaranteed to operate correctly on the new system, because some of the improvements made to increase its power and facilitate future development have involved changes to the command syntax and (especially) its pattern-matching routines.
