Queen Elizabeth wanted to establish protestantism in England.. In order to achieve this aim, she adopted the policy of diplomacy without estranging the Catholics. The Church of England was established by the two acts which were passed during her tenure. They were the Act of Supremacy and the Act of Uniformity. The religious settlement came into force in 1559. Inspite of criticisms, it was a great success. In sharp contrast to Queen Elizabeth I, Charles I appointed William Laud in 1628 as the Bishop of England. Puritans charged him that he was trying to re-introduce Catholicism in England. Laud also clashed with Scottish Presbyterians over the e issue of prayer book. Queen Elizabeth was a political genius and took great care to guide the country. Her exemplary leadership qualities are clear when she appointed able men at the right posts. Some of the great people who assisted her were Sir William Cecil and Sir Francis Walsingham. Her shrewd political leadership guided England from poverty to prosperity. Queen Elizabeth had an excellent relationship with the parliament. The parliament acquired special powers during her period. The parliament was divided into House of Lords and House of Commons. The parliament dealt with financial matters and passed laws. Charles did not heed to their demands and dissolved the parliament. He tried to survive without the help of Parliament by imposing ship money tax in 1635. He continued to rule without parliament from 1629-1640. Direct confrontation with parliament began with the inception of Long Parliament in 1640. The end result was the English Civil war of 1642-48
