Queen Mary I of England

Mary I was the queen of England and Ireland from 1553 until her death in 1558.

During the reign of her father, Henry VIII, a series of events occurred, by which the Church of England broke away from the authority of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church.

Mary I is well known for aggressively trying to reverse this so-called English Reformation. The executions she ordered in attempt to restore the Roman Catholicism led to her being called ‘Bloody Mary’ by her protestant opponents.
