Daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Succeeded her half-sister Mary Tudor to the throne of England as Queen. Under her rule, the Anglican Church assumed its distinctive character, neither Roman, nor Reformed. Although it remained a state Church under her monarchy, she changed her title from Supreme Head to Supreme Governor. Wrote Thirty-Nine Articles in 1563. Although essentially Protestant, many articles were worded in a way that would satisfy both Catholics and Protestants.
