The elder daughter of Henry VIII, Mary I (1553-58) became England's ruler on the unexpected death of her brother Edward VI. Her short reign is one of the great potential turning points in the country's history. As a convinced Catholic and the wife of Philip II, king of Spain and the most powerful of all European monarchs, Mary could have completely changed her country's orbit, making it a province of the Habsburg Empire and obedient again to Rome. These extraordinary possibilities are fully dramatized in John Edward's superb short biography. The real Mary I has almost disappeared under the great mass of Protestant propaganda that buried her reputation during her younger sister, Elizabeth I's reign. But what if she had succeeded?
John Edwards is Modern Languages Faculty Research Fellow in Spanish at the University of Oxford. His books include The Spanish Inquisition, Ferdinand and Isabella and Mary I: England's Catholic Queen. He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and Correspondiente de la Real Academia de la Historia (Madrid).
