Book Theme: Mary 1

The only living legacy of Henry VIII's first marriage, Mary was the princess who became a bastard and then restored as a princess. Eventually Mary would even ascend the throne but her reign has gone down in history as one of the worst in English history - horrible decisions, bad weather and an ill-suited marriage would be the destruction of Mary's name and the Queen herself is remembered by the name Bloody Mary.
