Who was Mary Tudor?

Elder daughter of King Henry VIII.

She succeeded her brother, who died at sixteen, and restored the Roman Catholic religion at its worst, with public burnings of non-believers. She was married to the King of Spain, but remained childless - a condition that caused her much misery, and seems to have contributed to her death after only a five-year reign.

She was succeeded by her brilliant and powerful sister Elizabeth the First.
