Mary Tudor I, is one of the most interesting historical figures to me And no, I m not a Catholic, Spanish nor do I think that she was justified in killing the almost 300 hundred protestants that occurred during her reign I simply think that on a psychological level, she is not only a complex person, but sad I also think that it is important that historians are now reassessing Mary s reign as Queen While there is no denying there was bad, John Foxe s anti Catholic propaganda has completely
Ultimately I have to disagree with all the blurbs on the back of this non fiction work on Mary Tudor Historians such as David Starkey and Antonia Fraser rave about this debut of Whitelock, but I fail to see what all of the hoopla is about It is a recitation of the known facts and that is all I don t see where Whitelock uncovered any new material here In fact, I feel she relies far too heavily on biased sources, such as the Spanish Ambassador of the time who would, of course, be farsymp Ultimately I have to disagree with all the blurbs on the back of this non fiction work on Mary Tudor Historians such as David Starkey and Antonia Fraser rave about this debut of Whitelock, but I fail to see what all of the ho

Mary Tudor highly deserves aappropriate title than history gives her and this bio really shows who she really was.Not the Bloody Mary of legend but a trailblazer for queenship in England,a courageous,intelligent and very capable queen who accomplished most everything she set out to do.She won her rightful throne,married her prince and returned the country to Roman Catholicism.This was a basic introduction to Mary I and I don t think I could have read a much better one.It didn t happen to Mary Tudor highly deserves aappropriate title than history gives her and this bio really shows who she really was.Not the Bloody Mary of legend but a trailblazer for queenship in England,a courageous,intelligent
This was dissapointing I was hoping for a fresh insight into Mary I, to erode my previous bias against the Bloody Queen The book was clearly in Mary s favour, almost idolising her at times, whilst demonising those who stood against her Someth
I know what you may be thinking that you love Elizabeth I and that Mary is just, well, her depressed older half sister who as a staunch Catholic had 300 heretics burned What you must realize is that Mary was a trailblazer as the first Queen of England, she paved the way for Elizabeth There would be no Elizabeth without Mary Mary was a fighter and fought for her throne literally Her coup was the most succesful revolt against central government in 16th century England.If you are interested i I know what you may be thinking that you love Elizabeth I and that Mary is just, well, her depressed older half sister who as a staunch Catholic had 300 heretics burned What you must realize is that Mary was a tr
History has vilified her as Bloody Mary Why Because she burnt over 300 heretics in her reign She tried to stem the tide of Protestantism in England, to return the country to the Catholicism that reigned at her birth and until her father s lust for both power and women got the better of him Unable to produce an heir, the crown returned to a Protestant Queen Elizabeth I and Mary was consequently vilified on religious grounds.I had always thought that Elizabeth was the first queen of Englan History has vilified her as Bloody Mary Why Because she burnt over 300 heretics in her reign She tried to stem the tide of Protestantism in England, to return the country to the Catholicism that reigned at her birth and until her father s lust for both power and women got the better of him Unable to produce an heir, the crown returned to a Protestant Queen Elizabeth I and Mary was consequently vilified on religious grounds.I had always thought that Elizabeth was the first queen of England and that her
Bloody Mary If history has ever painted any English monarch, then it certainly daubed a large brush, dipped in bright red gloss, all over Mary Tudor Well, quite right too, wasn t she the daughter of Henry VIII who reversed daddy s break with Rome Chopped the head off that pretty 19 year old Queen Jane Set fire to heretics up and down the land like there was no tomorrow Married the catholic Phillip of Spain for god s sake, and was nothing but nasty to the fair protestant princess Lizzy If a Bloody Mary If history has ever painted any English monarch, then it certainly daubed a large brush, dipped in bright red gloss, all over Mary Tudor Well, quite right too, wasn t she the daughter of Henry VIII who reverse
