Question from Alice - Contemporary comments on Mary I


Hi

For my homework (due on Monday 21st Nov!) I need to find two contempory comments supporting the nickname given to Mary 1 (Bloody Mary). These I have found.

However, I also need to find two not supporting the nickname. In other words, comments supporting Mary 1 herself. These I have a problem with and cannot find anywhere. Please could you help me???

Many thanks.

Alice Edwards

When Mary was a small princess, her father called her "The Pearl of England". This was at a time when Henry still had hopes for a male heir from Catherine of Aragon, and before 'the divorce' proceedings began.

I'm not sure exactly what kind of comments you need, but here are a few sites you may find helpful:

This page contains a cometmporary description of the queen. I couldn't tell if it had a quote you mind be able to use, but the author seems to be wuite fond on her, and he talks about how great her mind is.

This is a letter from Mary's mother, Catherine not long before her death. It wasn't written during Mary's reign, but it speaks a lot about the will of god.
