Response back to this apply: 1 to 2 sentences  

I would have to say I believed Elizabeth I of England to be a better ruler. I think any woman who was able to hold their ground and rule during a time of men dominance certainly had to brilliant. I love the fact that she stayed single, I believe she didn’t want to share or threaten her power. I also loved the fact that she tried to avoid chaos, and truly wanted her reign to go smoothly as possible.
