Mary Tudor married Prince Philip I of Spain & then said that she was pregnant. In the 9th month of her pregnancy she still hadn’t given birth. Mary’s answer? She issued a decree that God had told her that her child wouldn’t be born until all of the Protestants were punished. 2 months later, hundreds of Protestants were extra crispy, but there was still no baby. Her thin frame finally left the castle & ordered the Nation to never speak about the pregnancy again. #historicaltyranny
