History Of Queen Mary 1 AKA "Bloody Mary" Of England. by beauty7: 9:11pm On Oct 24, 2021
Queen Mary 1(18th February,1516 - 17 November,1558) was a queen of England after she defeated the reigning queen Lady Jane Grey in July,1553.



Her father, king Henry VIII was succeeded by her brother king Edward Vl, who died at the age of 15, handing over the throne to Lady Jane Grey.


Mary 1 did coup against Lady Jane Grey and overthrew her after a battle between the two.


Because she was Catholic, she ordered the release of all Catholics who were detained during the reigns of her father Henry VIII, her brother Edward VI and Lady Jane Grey.


She brought England back to Catholicism from Protestantism which was the state religion before she became queen.

She burned hundreds of Protestants at the stake in what is known as the Marian persecution.


She ruled for 5 years and died from a disease on 17 November,1558, at the age of 42.


She was succeeded by her half sister Elizabeth 1 who reversed most of her policies and brought England from Catholicism back to Protestantism.


Why she was called bloody Mary is because she ordered the burning of Protestants.

But even Elizabeth 1 ordered the hanging/beheading of people, but was not tagged bloody Elizabeth.

Her father Henry VIII, during his reign, also ordered the killing of many people, but was not tagged.

Queen Mary I's act of prosecutions was very graphic and inhumane. The English feared this era to the extent when Queen Anne died without a child who should become monarch, they bypassed close to 56 people of strong royal claim and bloodline to elect Sophia, Electress of Hanover, a protestants (somewhere around present day Germany) and her descendants, giving rise to the Hanoverian Dynasty, which technically the current Elizabeth II is a member

What you should fear is not religions but the ideologies instituted by its elites and teachers. To each of them then, they and their followers were doing the right things.

God and religions are not to be blamed here.

Did God or each of the religions' gods give any of their followers swords,guns or bombs directly? Na unaself dey bind am, they lose am, dey give unaself interpretation, swords, guns, bombs

People die, ideologies stay longer

I believe you're referring to Queen Mary II, who was succeeded by her sister Queen Anne.

Queen Mary II never even knew Queen Mary I. There was space of years between them. And Queen Mary II was a protestant unlike the Catholic Mary I. It wasn't that Queen Anne never had a child, in fact she did before becoming queen. She had William, Duke of Gloucester but he deid in his teenage years, during the co-monarch reign of William III and Mary II. And Queen Anne had lot of children who died at birth or never did make it pass the childhood. This led to the crisis of succession of having to choose the Hanovers because when Anne died, the closest royals to the throne were catholic and they had been a lot of wahala caused already by them eg the gun powder plot, revolt and all. The parliament just feared giving them a chance could turn things the other way again

You'd better check your sources. King Henry VIII was succeeded by his son, not his brother,

Religion is a big problem, then poverty and illiteracy

If only Nigerians knew and were interested in their history this way.

Queen Mary is not as bad as history paints her to be. She was an intelligent, strong woman but quite unpopular. Her father Henry VII killed more people than she did yet he wasn't referred to as bloody Henry. Even her sister Elizabeth I who took the throne after she died ordered the disembowelment of 800 Catholics while Queen Mary ordered the burning of only 280 protestants.

In the end the protestants of England won and so she was seen as a bloodthirsty queen because she was a Catholic.

Some people think the reason for her unpopularity was sexism but that's a story for another day.

Protestants won and anyone who was not for them was otherwise and common we're humans. That's what we do even in our society today, the majority carries all, dictates all.
