Born on Manticore, Elizabeth survived the death of her mother and both of her older Earth-born brothers during the Manticoran Plague which devastated the fledgling colony. Eventually, she became one of Manticore's leading jurists and served as president of the Board of Directors, thus becoming the virtual vice-president of Manticore near the end of her father Roger's tenure as Planetary Administrator. She became the Crown Princess of Manticore when the Manticoran monarchy was established.
Following the death of King Roger I, Elizabeth succeeded him to the throne as Queen Elizabeth I. During her rule, Queen Elizabeth skillfully played the many factions in the nascent Manticoran aristocracy against each other, thwarting the intention of the Constitution to establish Parliamentary control of Government and policy by an aristocratic House of Lords. In the words of one of her descendants and namesakes, "she hijacked the government" and by her death had established the Crown as the single most important element of the Manticoran power structures.
She reigned for many years and was succeeded by her son, who reigned as Michael I. (UHH)
