                Intro.:  A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

                Content: That Elizabeth became England’s ruler at all was remarkable. The daughter of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second wife, Elizabeth began her life with a major count against her. She was not a boy. Henry’s obsession with securing a male heir had caused him to divorce his first wife, break with the Roman Catholic Church, and saddle England with much social and religious controversy and unrest.
