The ''Queen's Pint'' was a form of Tudor Era measurement, which set the ''official'' limit and classification of an ''English Pint'', based on an actual ''tin cup'' which Queen Elizabeth I ''declared''. In reality, Royalty often ''set the measurement'' on weights and measures, based on their ''need to increase or decrease'' Taxes. Resembling a regular Pint Cup, The ''Queen's Pint'' became the standard until 1609 AD.
