Елизавета в оценках современников и потомковКанцлер Англии и философ Френсис Бэкон: «Женское правление было редкостью во все времена; удачное правление еще большей редкостью; удачное и то же время долгое правление – это уникальное явление». Госсекретарь королевы Роберт Сесил: «Она, пожалуй, была больше, чем мужчина, но меньше, чем женщина». Испанский посол граф Ферия: «Она очень привязана к своему народу и твердо уверена, что он на ее стороне, что и на самом деле так. Она конечно же великая королева, и если бы только она была католичкой, мы бы ее очень любили». Папа Сикст V: «Только посмотрите, как она управляет! Она всего лишь женщина…, но она заставляет Испанию, Францию, Империю – всех бояться себя».
