"brought religious peace & tolerance to Britain" hmmmmm.....

Oh my, what a comment!
Just remember that Elizabeth only took Mary's life to spare her own as there were attempts made by Mary to overthrow her & inevitably murder her. I'm not excusing the behaviour but there's always a reason for one's actions.

Anyways,
I believe that Elizabeth I was a great queen.
Queen Victoria didn't do so bad although Prince Albert was a brilliant help

Of the today's Kings and Queens in my opinion:
First of all Sofia of Spain. I really admire her because of her work and the way she masters her life. She's my favorite Queen.
In addition Queen Elizabeth II because for me she's just a famous woman who is a very good descendant of the old and historically monarchy of Great Britain.

This was absolutely necessary. Mary was trying to impose catholicism on an anglican england and other areas (sorry I need to brush up on my history:o) and trying to kill elizabeth. ELizabeth agonized over this and she did it at the last minute.

AMng hte monarch Queens-Queen ELizabeth II. and consorts Queen Silvia-just what a consort should perosnify. King Juan Carlos did restore the monarchy and he helped to establish democracy in Spain-way to go!:)

My ideal Queen would have to be Queen Elizabeth II, although I am a little biased in my choice, as I live in England! I admire her dedication to the country, particularly when going through trying times. However, I sometimes feel she appears a little distant.

My second ideal Queen would have to be Queen Sofia - she appears so warm, particularly towards her children and grandchildren.

I think Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands was quite an impressive lady. I also like Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Mary Queen of Scots, and Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.

I'm honestly not sure from a historical point of view, there are far too many Kings and Queen to take into account.

From a current outlook I'd say Queen Sofia of Spain and Queen Elizabeth II.

Kings of Spain, Queen Sofia and King Juan Carlos I, are my favourites. They brought democracy back to their country and almost all the time do a great job. I just hope, that the Crown Princes will choose similar way in the future.

I agree with except for one part: I don't think they just "almost" do a great job. I think they do a great job all the time.

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia are two very hard working individuals who represent their countries with great dignity and respect and diligience.

I think there is no fear that the Prince and Princess of Asturias will not carry on the same high standards set forth by the present King and Queen as they already represent Spain with as much dignity, respect, dilligence and enthusiasm.

My ideal queen is Queen Sofia of Spain: educated, intelligent, discreet, hard-working, classy and beautiful!

Yes, you do need to brush up on your history. During her reign Mary never once tried to impose Catholicism on the Presbyterian parts of Scotland. She only asked that she, and those living in the Catholic parts of Scotland, be given the right to worship as they pleased. There was never any plan to impose Catholicism on England.

At no point did Mary ever plot to kill Elizabeth. As for any plan to remove her from the English throne, Mary was used by English plotters who promised her freedom. If you had been held captive for years by a foreign power you would have done the same thing.

The answer to the question of the thread is still Elizabeth Tudor. She inherited the kingdoms that were in a fine mess, and by the end of her reign England was one of the powerful European states, if not the most powerful.

In those times taking part, however minor it was, in a plot that entailed the assassination or deposition of Elizabeth was sufficient to get a sentence of death. Mary Queen of Scots did not receive a fair trial; but who did, in a political case in 1586? No one, I'm afraid...

Queen Elizabeth II for she has all the great English qualities. For future monarchs i would say Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden.
