Now, this is my inner history geek forcing her way out to the surface, but none the less this is an inspirational quote for women everywhere.

Warning: the following sentences contain a short history lesson!

Queen Elizabeth, the first queen to rule alone who refused a marriage of duty and obligation, unless she could marry for love.2

She instead chose to part with tradition and ruled England, becoming one of the most admired English monarchs of all time.

These words are from a speech she famously delivered when faced with battle where she herself promised to take up arms and fight Europe’s most powerful country.

She changed the way women in power were viewed and proved any woman can hold her own whatever the arena.

These words, as do many others of her famous quotes remind us of the important things in life: Love, hope, happiness and strength.
