Can someone please explain the "Queen Bess" joke? What exactly was her nickname?

Or is she fictional and I just don't know enough about history to have picked that up?

Queen Bess = Queen Elizabeth I = we know what she was so pissed about in The Shakespeare Code

One of Queen Elizabeth I's more famous nicknames was "The Virgin Queen." I'm sure you can work out the rest of the joke from there.

Queen Elizabeth... the virgin queen.
