Mary Tudor: Renaissance Queen


I have recently discovered a fascinating new blog, Mary Tudor: Renaissance Queen by Little Miss Sunnydale. I encourage all my readers to take a look at this promising site!

I was delighted to find this site. Mary Tudor's story is all too often neglected or distorted, but here is a site which tries to give it in-depth treatment, in an objective manner.

Thanks for pointing this out. I have been interested in Queen Mary ever since I read the "Children of Henry VIII" book and found out that her actual character was totally the opposite of the way she is often portrayed. All those who knew her personally attested to her great kindness, compassion and even naivity.

Thank you for finding this, Matterhorn. Mary isn't an attractive character but she certainly needs more objective study.

Welcome, Susie! Thank you for visiting!

Viola, thank you for your comment.

I think, however, that, as MadMonarchist points out, Mary has often been misunderstood. We shouldn't go to the other extreme, and make her into perfection, but I do think that she should get more sympathy than traditional portrayals have provided.
