Queen Elizabeth Woodville | The Definitive Ranking Of The 11 Most Badass Queens In History

Mary I (reigned 1553-1558) was Queen of England. Her brutal persecution of Protestants caused her opponents to give her the sobriquet "Bloody Mary". In 1554 Mary married Philip of Spain, becoming queen consort of Habsburg Spain on his accession in 1556. Mary is remembered for her restoration of Roman Catholicism after the short-lived Protestant reign of her half-brother. During her five-year reign, she had over 280 religious dissenters burned at the stake in the Marian persecutions.
