Who is Gloriana?

Gloriana a.k.a. Elizabeth I of England: Elizabeth I was Queen of England and Ireland from 17 November 1558 until her death. Sometimes called The Virgin Queen, Gloriana or Good Queen Bess, the childless Elizabeth was the fifth and last monarch of the Tudor dynasty. Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry VIII by second wife, Anne Boleyn, who was executed two and a half years after Elizabeth's birth. Anne's marriage to Henry VIII was annulled, and Elizabeth was declared illegitimate. Her half-brother, Edward VI, ruled until his death in 1553, bequeathing the crown to Lady Jane Grey and ignoring the claims of his two half-sisters, Elizabeth and the Roman Catholic Mary, in spite of statute law to the contrary. However, Edward's will was set aside and Mary became queen, deposing Lady Jane Grey. During Mary's reign, Elizabeth was imprisoned for nearly a year on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels.


Gloriana is an American country music group founded in 2008. It is composed of brothers Tom Gossin and Mike Gossin, and Rachel Reinert. Gloriana released its debut single "Wild at Heart" in February 2009, which was a Top 15 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The group's self-titled debut album, Gloriana, was released on August 4, 2009. Their second album, A Thousand Miles Left Behind, produced their first Top 10 country hit and first Top 40 pop hit in " Good Night".
