There is absolutely no evidence Elizabeth Tudor ever had children - unsurprising in a 'Virgin Queen'.

Rumors to the contrary invariable stem from her enemies and people distant from the court who were in no position to know.

Given the fact that Elizabeth was under surveillance by her attendants, ministers and courtiers every minute of every day it is quite literally impossible she could have successfully concealed a pregnancy.

Not wanting to depress you but i feel taht you ahve very little change of beng able to gain anything from this investigation as someone as high profile as E would ahve be unable to conceal a pregnancy...and there is little evidence that she was anything other than the Virgin Queen she calimed to be.

I think that it's worth looking at. I agree that there's little or no evidence that Elizabeth had children. I think the only suggestion that she may have had children is the fact that she was, probably, a sexually active adult female, at least some of the time.

Still, if you can look at the relevant evidence and come up with a conclusion that makes sense, then you should get good grades:-) Unfortunately, I don't think that conclusion would be that she had any children, but if you can argue the opposite effectively i would be impressed.
