The accession of Queen Elizabeth I was a key moment in history, marking the start of a 45-year reign, considered to be one of the most successful and glorious in English history. Deemed the Golden Age, it was a period when the arts and literature flourished, trade and industry thrived, and many successful voyages and discoveries were made by men like Francis Drake, Walter Raleigh and Humphrey Gilbert. Accession Day or Queen's Day was celebrated annually at Queen Elizabeth I's court with a series of elaborate festivals and continued to be a national holiday in England for 200 years.
