Tudor Times Insights: Mary I, Queen of England $5.00
Mary I, daughter of Henry VIII and Katharine of Aragon, was the first woman crowned as sovereign in England. Her life veered between triumph and tragedy, as the doted on child became an outcast, deprived of her status and separated from her mother. She overcame opposition to claim her rightful inheritance, but memories of her short reign have been been largely negative. This account draws on the latest scholarship to show a queen who was far more than the religious fanatic of legend.
Tudor Times Insights are short but comprehensive introductions to Tudor and Stewart personalities.
