I'm wondering why you singled out his daughter Elizabeth and not his other daughter "Bloody" Mary who fits the rest of the description much better. Mary was famously burning all the Protestants she could find in an attempt to undo the damage Henry did with the Catholic church, while Elizabeth was famously tolerant of multiple religions in her realm. Shit hit the fan 11 years into her reign when the Catholic church excommunicated her and encouraged its followers to overthrow her and put Mary Stuart in her place, but she still refused her privy council when it came to actually outlawing Catholic beliefs. Elizabeth also made great pains to advance and expand education, investing great fortunes into Cambridge in particular.
