Royal Class

The life of a woman in the royal class of the Elizabethan Era could easily be compared to the life of Queen Elizabeth.  Women of this class had the least amount of limitations on their life, however, if they were to get married, they were considered inferior to their husbands.  For this reason, many women of this Era chose not to marry.  Women could receive in-home tutoring sessions, but were not permitted to attend school.  The wardrobe of a woman in the royal class consisted of delicate, expensive, "high-fashion" fabrics such as fur and silk.  Usually, women could not inherit their family titles, but the royal class had exceptions to this rule.  Women of the royal class could inherit the Crown and become Queen.

Upper Class

Women in the upper class were usually a part of wealthy and noble families.  Education was very important in this class, however, their education was different than you would think.  Although they were given tutoring lessons, their lessons consisted of teachings of household chores.  They were taught proper manners and etiquette and how to act as a "lady".  Women of this class could not have jobs, however, some received the privledge of serving the noble ladies in the castle.  Upper class women were expected to marry and provide children.  Tehy were expected to wear conservative clothing that covered their bodies, for it was considered disrespectful for them to expose their skin in public.  Women of this class were not allowed to act in plays or take part in voting.

Lower Class

The lower class was the lowest social rank of the Elizabethan time period and had the most restrictions on women.  Women of this class were not allowed to attend school or receive tutoring.  Instead, they learned how to tend to household duties.  They were expected to marry and have children, and preparing for children was one of their most important topic of education.  Marriage was more of a rule than a choice.  If a woman in this class was single, she would usually be accused of witchcraft.  They were not allowed to have jobs of any sort, and their only role in society was to obey her husband and care for the house and children.  Lower class women usually wore rag-like materials such as wool because they could not afford anything more.
