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.
