Queen Mary I (1516-1558) Mary I, the only child of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon to survive childhood, was Queen regnant of England and Queen regnant of Ireland. She is remembered for restoring England to Roman Catholicism after succeeding her short-lived Protestant half brother, Edward VI. In that process, Mary had almost 300 religious dissenters burned at the stake in the Marian Persecutions. The medieval heresy laws were restored by Parliament, which meant that heretics could be killed and their property and holdings given over to the Crown. Her burning of Protestants had led people to call her ‘Bloody Mary.’ Her re-establishment of Roman Catholicism was reversed by her successor and half-sister, Elizabeth I.
