    The palace intrigues and complex relationship with her cousin, Queen Elizabeth mark the narration in the book. It provides an insight into mechanization that finally led to the execution of Mary. A fascinating tale indeed.

    A very quick introduction to Mary Tudors life and reign.

    “She was a king’s daughter; she was a king’s sister; she was a king’s wife; she was queen, and by the same title a king also.”

Although she was only on the throne for 5 years, they were tumultuous years in England. This book makes a point of saying that Henry VIII remained a Catholic throughout his life; he sparked the Reformation for personal convenience (so he could divorce at will), not religious beliefs. It also says that Henry never demanded that his citizens abandon their Catholic beliefs. The years after  Henry Vlll's death were extremely difficult for British citizens.  Mary married a man they did not want, had two phantom pregnancies, and died alone.  She is certainly a tragic figure.

    Mary I, Queen for Only Five Years Although Mary I was only Queen for five years, she is well remembered for condemning Protestants in England as being heretics and having them burned at the stake. Her moniker has always been "Bloody Mary." She lived a sad life, being estranged from her mother by King Henry VIII, because she would not accept his ruling of their marriage being annulled and herself deemed illegitimate. She was wed at 37 to Prince Phillip of Spain, whom she grew to love but that love Mary I, Queen for Only Five Years Although Mary I was only Queen for five years, she is well remembered for condemning Protestants in England as being heretics and having them burned at the stake. Her moniker has always been "Bloody Mary." She lived a sad life, being estranged from her mother by King Henry VIII, because she would not accept his ruling of their marriage being annulled and herself deemed illegitimate. She was wed at 37 to Prince Phillip of Spain, whom she grew to love but that love was one-sided. She had two false pregnancies and left no heir. Her half-sister, Elizabeth, who was Ann Boleyn’s daughter and 17 years younger than Mary, succeeded her and restored Protestantism as the national religion.

    Did the adult beverage “bloody Mary”, get its name from the queen of England? All kidding aside, the reign of Queen Mary first was indeed a bloody rain. When Mary ascended the throne, her one and only goal, at least initially, was to restore Catholicism to England. During her reign she had over 300 protestants burned at the stake. However, those she tried to give birth to an heir to her throne, she and her husband Philip of Spain never succeeded in doing so.

However, those she tried to give birth to an heir to her throne, she and her husband Philip of Spain never succeeded in doing so. Therefore, at the end of her rain, Elizabeth started her reign of the renaissance in England. Knowing a great deal through my readings about the tutors, I do believe the entire family was “mad”.

    Bloody Mary She truly deserved this nickname. She obviously had some serious mental health issues. She also had some serious physical health issues too. In a different time, she might have been a decent queen. She was too brainwashed and emotionally damaged to have been truly great at ruling England during her rain. She was a sad creature. I feel sorry for her. She was a casualty of the mind set then.

    This was a very interesting read and I love how quick and to the point it was. I've never read about Queen Mary I so it was new information. It was hard to fathom how easily people were killed and the significant divides between Protestantism and Catholicism. Looking forward to reading the books prior to and immediately after her reign.

    Another great book even though it is short it covers the life of Mary very well. Popular as a princess Mary soon managed to turn the people against her when she became queen and tried to undo what Henry started and Edward continued.

    Good overview of the life of Queen Mary Liked the overview. Enough information to help clarify questions about the life of Mary I. Not enough for comprehensive study, but a good start.

    There weren't a lot of revelations that were new to me, since I'm already a fan of British history, but as a high-level introduction to the subject (which is what I view these Hourly History entries to be) it is readable and informative.
