    Elizabeth has traditionally been seen as one of England's greatest monarchs - if not in fact the greatest. Her reign witnessed widespread increase in literacy and great achievements in the arts (Shakespeare, Spenser, Marlowe, Ralegh) as well as expansion overseas (Drake, Ralegh, Frobisher) and military victory over threatened invasion. Elizabeth herself was regarded as wise and just, able to choose good advisers yet not be dominated by them and to handle recalcitrant Parliaments without despotism; a ruler supremely skilled at compromise in both the religious and political spheres. In recent years, however, interpretations of Elizabeth and her reign have been less favorable.
