Queen Mary 1
Mary I, called Mary Tudor, 1516-58 A.D., queen of England, 1553-58; one crazy evil bitch!

Mary was born in London on February 18, 1516, the daughter of Henry VIII of England, by his first wife, Catherine of Aragón. On the death of her half brother, Edward VI on July 6, 1553, she became the legal heir to the throne. She became known as "Bloody Mary" as a result of trials for heresy after which she burned more than 300 high-ranking Protestant.clergymen during her five-year reign; part of the Inquisition. She had hoped to restore the Roman Catholic church in England by concocting reasons to murder any opposition. Many English people who believed in the Bible had fled London during the repressive reign of Roman Catholic Mary I, which had halted the publication of Bibles there. Certainly Mary I was a willing tool of the dark side.

Of those who fled, some went to Switzerland and there produced the Geneva Bible.

Lord High Chamberlain John Dudley, duke of Northumberland, however, favored the succession of his daughter-in-law, Lady Jane Grey, whom Mary opposed by having corrupt judges, one being a Judge Morgan, rule against her to her death after Lady Jane Grey was proclaimed queen on July 10.

Mary began her reign by sweeping away the religious innovations of her father. Mary restored Mass and the authority of the pope she reestablished, but Parliament refused to restore the church lands seized under Henry VIII. Mary, however, restored the property to the pope that the Crown still possessed.

Even more disastrous was her marriage in 1554 to Philip II, king of Spain. The engagement was greeted in England by a formidable.rebellion under the leadership of Sir Thomas Wyatt to depose Mary and put her half sister, Elizabeth, a good woman, later Elizabeth I, on the throne

Philip II was an uncompromising Roman Catholic and unpopular in England. At his order, Mary joined in a war against France, with the result that Calais, the last remnant of the English conquests won during the Hundred Years' War with France, was lost in 1558.

Mary died in London on November 17, 1558 and was succeeded by Elizabeth I.....comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
