Has any further information been found about the naming of Princess Mary?

I'm actually doing a whole series on Mary, as this year marks 500 years since her birth. The series will run for the entire year. :)

How exciting a very complex and controversial figure,needless to say there were probably no celebrations to mark the 500th anniversary of her birth!

Oo, that sounds interesting. I shall have to have a read of your posts so far later on. I've always been interested in Mary I's life.

It was very interesting to see stained glass of Mary and Philip from that Dutch Church,miraculously surving the iconoclasm of the Dutch Reformation and subsequent Wars!

I was hoping someone could help me to identify this portrait. It's said to be of Mary I, but I can't find any dates or an artist.

There had to be some physical sign of a pregnancy, larger waist area, etc. Once the pregnancy was determined to be phantom, did she remain pregnant in appearance? Did she have something removed?

Was Queen Mary I as free to choose her own husband as she may have thought?

She certainly risked her throne in choosing. Her choice of a Spanish husband was extremely unpopular. Her advisors and government were pushing for an English husband, fearing Hapsburg control. It lead to Wyatts rebellion and other issues. She likely did feel some loyalty to her cousin Charles, and yo the memory of her mother, at one point, she was meant to marry Charles when she was a kid. She was also a Catholic queen in a Protestant heAvy country with a popular Protestant sister, and knew having a strong Catholic ally would help.

From her coronation Mary I walked out carrying an orb and two scepters as she was both King and Queen.

Mary's 'pregnancy' was a false one, I believe. She deluded herself into believing with all her heart that she was going to bear a child. She never bled, never passed anything, just had a swollen stomach and breasts. She calculated her dates, and stated that her baby was to be born around May 9th 1555 and in August of that year was still believing that she would produce a child.

Most courtiers didn't know what to think, and Mary's age and health would make this a very dangerous birth anyway. There seems to have been a fair amount of scepticism all the way through this time that the Queen was in fact pregnant, and a report from her head midwife, a very experienced woman, seems to confirm that those sharing her close confinement (she was in virtual purdah from the court between April and July) had great doubts about there being any baby.

Mary might well have been suffering from pseudocyesis, a rare psychological condition that causes the mimicing of certain signs of pregnancy. Menstuation ceases, (Mary might in fact have also been going through an early menopause) and the breasts become tender and even can produce milk.

Mary longed desperately for a child. She was deeply in love with King Philip, poor woman, devoted to her religion, and believed with all her heart and soul that England must return to Roman Catholicism. To secure all those things there had to be a child, preferably male.

By late August, although her heart was probably broken, Mary realised that there was not going to be a baby. She was always thin and her figure apparently returned to normal.

I actually have experience of something akin to this. When I was living in England as a teenager a family friend, a woman in her thirties, announced to family and friends that she was going to have a baby in the autumn.

She and her husband had been married for four years and he especially wanted a baby. Throughout that summer she was seen in summer dresses, with an enlarged stomach. My aunt was sceptical, stating that her tummy had become very large extremely quickly.

Then one day in the autumn she appeared in a blouse and skirt with no appearance of pregnancy at all. We lived in a small town and the talk was that her mother, with whom the couple lived, had called doctors in because of certain things her daughter had said. Her husband was devastated. They stayed together though, and two years later they did have a baby. Mind over matter!

Is it really fair to only name Mary I as Bloody of the Tudor Monarchs?

I may be wrong but i read some where that she had far less people executed on average in a year than the other Tudor monarchs. So why is Mary I the only one that is called Bloody. I mean based on what i understand the other Tudor monarchs was just as bloody if not even more.
Yes i know she only ruled for 5 years the shortest reign of the Tudor monarchs ( i do not count Lady Jane Grey) But even if we only take one year Mary I had less people executed then what the other Tudors did in a year. I am not saying that Mary I was a good Queen. But i do think that History is a bit unfair on her. Considering that she was far from the bloodiest Tudor. In fact it does not seem like she was any more bloody than other European monarch of that era.

Of course i am not an expert on Tudor England and i admit that. So i may be wrong in what i just wrote. And if i am. I am sure somebody will correct me.
