    Mary was a queen driven by faith, she would send hundreds of her subjects to burn at the stake.
    Written and presented by Dr David Starkey, this is the compelling story of two of England's most striking monarchs: a brother and sister, tied by blood and affection, and torn apart by religion, power, and some of the bloodiest episodes in English history. Mary (who was to become England's first reigning Queen since Matilda but who is best known to generations of British schoolchildren as Bloody Mary) was the first born child of Henry VIII. For 20 years she was heir to her adored father. Then came the birth of her little half-brother Edward, and Mary found herself cast into the shadows, ignored by her father and declared illegitimate by Act of Parliament. Nonetheless she became very attached to the motherless boy, and he to her, declaring her his dearest sister. When Edward was just nine, their father died and the young boy became King, surrounded by advisors and further distanced from his beloved elder sister. But by now they were divided not just by power and status, but also by faith. Mary was a staunch Catholic, Edward a reforming Protestant: at this time such matters were not an issue of personal choice but matters of life or death, treason or heresy. Within a few years Mary was under virtual house arrest and banned from celebrating mass; within a few more years Edward was dead at the tragically early age of 16 and Mary became Queen. She set about making England a Catholic country once more and hundreds of Protestants, including Edward's most trusted advisors, were burnt at the stake because they refused to renounce their faith.

Professor David Starkey is quite excellent at presenting these Tudor documentaries. He is actually an atheist, and believe it or not very ambivalent about monarchy; hardly surprising considering how much he has studied the subject in context with modern history.

Henry VIII had a TBI injury and multiple injuries that would have affected his thought process. We see it today in many cases with other patients. The difference today versus then is that we have the technology to treat and heal; back in his time, they did not. Points to consider when calling him a Psychopath.

What Henry VIII did to his own daughter speaks volumes of the way medieval royalty was geared to be indifferent toward their own children. Not all followed that rule, there were exceptions. Two that I know of are Elizabeth Woodville and Margaret of Anjou, both of these women showed their kids motherly love, and were heavily involved in their upbringing. Margaret only had one child, "Edward of Westminster, Prince of Wales" and as some historians explain it 'as a child he was spoiled, and arrogant as a young adult. (Too much Love??)

It was a mans world back then. Women NEVER receive land or titles from the passing of their Fathers. It went from Father to son. Women had no say in their own lives. Being beautiful was a curse. And being unattractive is as good as dead. They were also not allowed to work or make their own money. I was a big fan of "Reign". I guess at the time I didn't give it any thought on Mary's Father. I'm only know going back and putting all the pieces together.

Why do all the paintings of this time depict people with no eyelashes? Was it because they plucked them out, due to some sort of belief that they would cause illness, or as you also see very little definition of eyebrows either, is it that eyelashes are as difficult to paint as teeth, and so paintings, even today, fairly rarely show open mouthed smiles?

LOL... An ad came on towards the very end, and I was mostly just listening to this so I didn't see the change, so the guy is saying in dramatic tones about her gravestone, and the words written on her stone, so he says, ”Mary...” and there's a sudden music entrance with electric guitar type stuff, and it took me a moment to realize that it was an ad, not that the history channel had just made some VERY dramatic musical build up to the ending haha! Maybe I'm the only one who had that ad at that placement, but it still cracked me up... So sudden and out of place, yet not ENTIRELY impossible, so it caught my attention... Maybe they *should* start placing some rock music randomly in places in their documentaries, just to keep ya on your toes? Hehe. (On another note, I enjoyed this video, I read a book about Mary in middle school, it was I guess historical fiction since it was written from her point of view, if I recall correctly, and was written so it wouldn't be too intense for kids, I guess, and pretty much only covered her childhood, it got me interested in learning more so I've always kinda felt sympathetic towards Mary, though I don't excuse any of her actions later in life with the brutal killings etc... Just overall a sad way for things to have gone. Good documentary, though, seems like it would be challenging to decide what parts to cover, as there was LOTS that happened during her life! Though I guess if you tried to compress anyone's life into 50ish min, it would be challenging.)
