Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth's Poetry and Letters

Publication Date: October 19, 2010

Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century

Queen Elizabeth rules. There's really no disputing this. The fact that she managed to stay in power over 44 years after all the shit that came before her is a testament to her awesomeness. Among the many events that occured under her reign, perhaps her most lasting legacy was the flowering of the arts. Poetry and theater exploded under her watchful gaze, and it's distinctly possible we wouldn't even have Shakespeare today were it not for her patronage. She was also a fairly prolific writer herself, and wasn't too bad at it either.

Of course, the coolest thing about the virgin queen was her spy network. Directly responsible for keeping her alive for so long, her secret agents were woven throughout Europe and were totally badass. Their leader? COLONEL NICK FURY. Erm, I mean, Francis Walsingham. But Nick Fury would've been even cooler.

I seriously almost drew that guy in the panel with an eye patch.
