On 21 April 1926 at 26 Bruton Street, Mayfair, London, England.
Monarchs choose which of their names they wish to be known by, not by family or dynasty. The present Queen of the United Kingdom is Elizabeth II because she is the second pers…on named Elizabeth to ever to be Queen of that country or one of its predecessors, such as Queen of England. The numbering works a little different than the way commoners of the same name in the same family would be numbered, because of the wide influence of a monarch. Elizabeth I the Virgin Queen Sometimes the name is used more than once even in different blood lines, so even though she might not have had any children, another queen can choose that name. Queen Elizabeth I never had a daughter. In fact, she didn't have and children at all. Queen Elizabeth III? In monarchies, names bear no significance involving relation or lineage. Queens Elizabeth I and II just happened to go by the same name. There has never been a Queen Elizabeth III. At the moment the Queen of the United Kingdom is Elizabeth II. Elizabeth I never married and died childless at aged 70. She was therefore succeded on the throne of England by James I, the first King of England and Scotland who reigned until 1625. The following monarchs were : Charles I (1625-1649) ; Charles II (1660-1685) ; James II (1685-1688) ; William III & Mary II (1689-1702) ; Anne (1702-1714) ; George I (1714-1727) ; George II (1727-1760) ; George III (1760-1820) ; George IV (1820-1830) ; William IV (1830-1837) ; Victoria (1837-1901) ; Edward VII (1901-1910) ; George V (1910-1936) ; Edward VIII (abdicated 1936) ; George VI (1936-1952) ; Elizabeth II (1952-present day) Note from a pedant Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. King James I of England was also King James VI of Scotland and his succession to the throne of England began the process of the "Union of Crowns" The title "Queen (or King) of England" no longer exists. ------------------------------------------------------------- I see the point you are making is ---- how can there be a hereditary monarch if Queen Elizabeth I had no children. Well the crown passed to a close relative of Queen Elizabeth I (James I) and the present Queen Elizabeth II is a direct descendant of him not her namesake.
be the queen all day
Answer Scotland is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the current monarch is in effect Queen of Scotland alth…ough that title does not formally exist. In actual fact, Queen Elizabeth II is only Queen Elizabeth II in England. As Scotland had never previously had a Queen Elizabeth, Queen Elizabeth II is actually only Queen Elizabeth I in Scotland. (The previous Queen Elizabeth in England was not a monarch in Scotland as the Union of the Crowns occurred on her death with James VI of Scotland becoming King in England (in England he was known as James I)). There are some factual errors here. James I of England was James VI of Scots (note Scots not Scotland in the title) This was because there were two distinct kingdoms he reigned over. The two kingdoms were united into Great Britain in 1707 (later becoming the United Kingdom in 1801 when Ireland was added in) Since that time Monarchs take the highest ordinal number that has existed in either England (from 1066) or Scotland. There have been 3 Richards in England and none in Scotland. If there was another King Richard he would be Richard IV of the UK Similalry there have been 3 Roberts in Scotland and none in England. If there was another King Robert he would be Robert IV of the UK Hence the current Queen is Elizabeth II in both countries. There may be some Scottish nationist who would take issue with this but desiring on thing is different to how it actually is and besides, they could still be independent with the same Queen as in Austraila or Canada she is afterall probably more Scottish than English and overall more German one could argue.
the timeline of the queen Elizabeth 2
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a Constitutional Monarchy, with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as Head of State. This means that all action…s of the government are carried out in the name of the Queen, but decisions are made by the elected Prime Minister, The Cabinet and Members of the Houses of Parliament.
Elizabeth II's mother was the queen consort (wife) of George VI. She was also called Elizabeth. Before her marriage, she was known as Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. When her h…usband became King she received the title of Queen Elizabeth, but she was not the monarch, so she had no regnal number. After the death of King George VI she was called 'Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother' in order to avoid confusion with her daughter.
Queen Elizabeth II is the Queen of England. Her coronation was in June of 1953 and she is married and has four children.
Queen Elizabeth II is queen because the Act of Settlement (1701) provides that since the death of Queen Anne and William III, the senior descendant of the Electress Sophia of …Hanover in agnatic primogeniture shall be the monarch of England unless he or she is a Catholic and unless he or she marries a Catholic. The Act of Union (1707) made this law apply to the United Kingdom. From 1936 (before the Queen's accession) until 28 May 1972 His Majesty's Declaration of Abdication Act modified this rule to exclude the Duke of Windsor from the throne, but that has been dormant since he died. The Australian Constitution provides that whomever succeeds Queen Victoria as sovereign of the UK is Queen of Australia (known as king is male). Queen Elizabeth succeeded Queen Victoria by the operation of the Act of Settlement in conjunction with His Majesty's Declaration of Abdication Act and that made her Queen of Australia. In short, Elizabeth II is Queen because Parliament made a series of laws to have that effect.
Britain does not have any 'dynasties', but the British version of it, are called 'Houses' which is the Family of the ruling Monarch. The current Monarch's family is called 'Ho…use of Windsor'.
I would have to say assasins and terrorists- it's a hazard of the Trade of Monarch.
Her Majesy has 3 sons. Prince Charles of Wales, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
Her inmense sense of duty and love for the work she does. She comes from a background that taught her she was to become queen because of God's will, so she must think she is t…here because God put her there to do the best for her nations.
In Elizabeth II
The Stuarts were/are Scots, and Queen Elizabeth is German in her background. So, no.
Either the current Sovereign Queen of the United Kingdom- who will celebrate her birthday on the 2lst of April. tomorrow as I type this, or the Cunard ocean liner- popularioly… called QE2, of the same name.
In Elizabeth II
She queens. She does not work and is wealthy. She is extremely involved in her race horses.
