Mary I (Penguin Monarchs)

The Daughter of Time




The acclaimed Penguin Monarchs series: short, fresh, expert accounts of England's rulers - now in paperback.

'Mary is seen as a grim-faced Catholic fanatic, who wore black, was wrinkled and ugly, and lived in the gloomy shadows of childlessness, and political and religious failure'

Known as Mary Tudor or, to her detractors, 'Bloody Mary', Mary I has been shrouded in historical and ideological myth. This superb short biography clears away layers of misunderstanding about the first Tudor Queen to allow us to see her clearly: as a pioneer of English female sovereignty.
