Early Life

Elizabeth was born as Elizabeth Mary, named for her paternal aunts on 24 December 1574. Elizabeth was a favorite child of her father, however, she was often in conflict with her mother. She had a wild temper and was prone to throwing fits and physically fighting with her sisters, particularly the fragile Cecily. Her attitude was no different with her elder sisters, nor her mother, often being locked away for hours or days with only a single meal. The French ambassador wrote of her, "Elisabeth Marie is not the sophisticated princess one would think she is, given who her mother is. The girl acts similarly to a savage without proper exposure to society and I pray for the innocent soul who is given her as a wife"  Queen Isabella became extremely exasperated with her daughter as she attempted to teach her daughter proper etiquette.The only sibling that could keep her under control was her sister Sophia.
