Daughter of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, she succeeded to the throne on the death of her half-brother Edward VI, after disposing of the interloper Jane Grey. Determined to reestablish Roman Catholicism in England, she married Phillip II of Spain and undertook a program of persecuting the Protestants, burning hundreds at the stake. For this she is known as Bloody Mary.

Her reign is generally considered a failure. The populace became hardened against Catholicism, the economy was in ruins, and England's last Continental foothold, Calais, was lost.

She was succeeded by her half-sister, Elizabeth I.  -30-
