Queen Mary 1 of England (daughter of Henry VIII & Katherine of Aragon) aka Bloody Mary

The Most Evil Women In History - Bloody Mary Tudor (part1/3)

The death of Queen Elizabeth I., as imagined by artist, Paul Delaroche (1828). In March 1603 Elizabeth was described as being unwell and seemed depressed. She took up residence in one of her favourite palaces – Richmond – close to the River Thames. She refused to allow herself to be examined, and she refused take to her bed – standing for hours on end. As her condition deteriorated her ladies-in-waiting spread cushions on the floor, and Elizabeth eventually lay down on them.

A portrait of Queen Mary I of England. Jane Seymour was always sympathetic to her former mistress, Catherine of Aragon, and allowed herself to become the figurehead of the faction aiming to topple Queen Anne Boleyn from her throne. Jane made friends with Mary before she became Queen, and helped to bring her back into Henry VIII's favor after she married him.

Mary, no longer Queen of France, returned to Scotland in August 1561. Wearing white was the official sign of mourning worn by women of royal blood or high-ranking courtiers.

Mary Queen of Scots, something I didn't know, she was six feet tall! This does make sense since her Great-Grandfather King Edward IV was the tallest king to ever rule Britain.
