                  • allowed Catholics and Puritans to keep their private beliefs as long as they went to the Church of England in public.
                  • However, she hunted, tortured and executed Catholic priests who came into England to undermine her power.
                • She was as 'bloody' as Mary and executed many more people for religion than her father. She established a network of spies and informers to ensure her safety.
              • She survived plots and rebellions, and executed Mary Queen of Scots in 1587.
              • Parliament
                • Far from encouraging Parliament, she bullied and controlled it, ran the government as she wished and even arrested an MP when he complained.
