Elisabeth, die letzte englische Herrscherin aus dem Hause Tudor, wurde am 7. September 1533 in London als Tochter König Heinrichs VIII. von England und seiner zweiten Gemahlin Anne Boleyn geboren. 1536 hatte ihr Vater Heinrich durch einen Parlamentsbeschluss seine Ehe mit Anne Boleyn für ungültig erklären lassen, um seine dritte Frau, Jane Seymour, ehelichen zu können. Mit Zustimmung des Parlaments setzte er seinen Sohn aus der Ehe mit Jane Seymo ... mehr
Elisabeths dominierende Rolle in einem Zeitalter, das sogar mit ihrem Namen belegt wurde, gründet teilweise auf dem allumfassenden Nationalgeist, den sie zu verbreiten verstand und der während der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts ganz England erfasste. Elisabeth gelang es, das Vertrauen des Volkes in die Monarchie und eine starke Krongewalt wieder herzustellen. Nach der Überwindung der konfessionellen Spaltung im Land und der Beendigung des Kr ... mehr
Unter Elisabeths Führung wuchs England zu einer bedeutenden Seemacht heran, die legendäre Seehelden wie Sir Francis Drake und Sir John Hawkins hervorbrachte.
Drake und Hawkins begründeten in den 1560er mit 3 Expeditionen, mit denen sie in den Handel mit Sklaven aus Afrika in Mittelamerika einzusteigen versuchten, den großen Ringhandel zwischen Europa, Afrika und Amerika mit. Über zehn Millionen umgekommene Schwarze gehen zu Lasten britischer Skl ... mehr
Ein sehr delikates politisches Problem war für Elisabeth ihre katholische Cousine Maria Stuart, Königin von Schottland, die nach ihrer Niederlage gegen ihren Halbbruder James Stuart, Earl von Moray, 1568 in England Zuflucht suchte.
Maria wurde am 8. Dezember 1542 in Linlithgow geboren und bereits wenige Tage später als Nachfolgerin ihres Vaters zur Königin erhoben. Sie wuchs in Frankreich auf und wurde 1558 mit dem französischen Thronfolger ver ... mehr
Maria Stuarts Hinrichtung hatte schwerwiegende Folgen. Bereits seit längerem hatte Elisabeth die Übergriffe englischer Freibeuter wie z. B. Francis Drake auf spanische Schiffe und spanischen Kolonialbesitz unterstützt, und sie ließ den Niederlanden in ihrem Freiheitskampf gegen Spanien Hilfe zukommen. Die Hinrichtung der Katholikin Maria lieferte nun dem ebenfalls katholischen spanischen König Philipp II., der sich im Übrigen nach dem Tod seiner ... mehr
Gegen Ende ihrer Regierungszeit schwand Elisabeths Popularität vor allem wegen ihrer unkontrollierten Ausgaben und dem zunehmenden Missbrauch ihrer königlichen Macht. Wirtschaft und Handel gingen infolge der Kriege nieder, und Elisabeths politische Führung zeigte zunehmend Schwächen - waren ihre späteren Berater doch bei weitem nicht so fähig wie ein William Cecil Burghley oder ein Walsingham. Einen bitteren Beigeschmack bekam die Endphase von El ... mehr

Impulse Drive, Warp Drive and Dilithium Crystals
The impulse drive is powered by nuclear fusion. The problem here is that fusion turns only one percent of the available mass into energy. you can work out how much fuel would be required to do the following simple manoeuvre: start from rest, go to half the speed of light and then stop. It turns out that you need about 7000 times the mass of the ship in fuel just to do that.
The galaxy is about ... mehr
