Mary Tudor was a princess who should have been a queen. Instead, her father shunned and disowned her because she was not a boy. After the deaths of her father and half brother, she had to fight those in power who sought to keep her off the throne.
She was eventually crowned Queen of England. Her battles to abolish her father’s new church and return England to a Roman Catholic country resulted in rebellion and mass persecutions. Over 300 people were burned at the stake for heresy and witchcraft. This earned Mary the name of Bloody Mary. Here is her story.
Find out about the life of this woman who fought to become Queen of England, and how she earned the name Bloody Mary.

Stop im tellin barnes and noble
The worst written bio I've read. To take up space she puts footnotes in the middle of the pages if that wasn't bad enough most the time there in French. Theres latin quotes with no english translation, after reading half I couldn't take it anymore I bought another book and rrsd it. The info in it is ok a bit long winded, but ok. Don't get any books by her, there all the same format
How long is the book
