Until recently, the reign of Mary Tudor was generally seen as a ï¿½sterile interludeï¿½ in the Tudor century, with Mary herself dismissed as ï¿½Bloody Maryï¿½. Extensive research in the past several decades has overturned these assumptions in almost every respect. In this succinct and up-to-date introduction to Maryï¿½s reign, Tittler and Richards provide new insight into the circumstances of Maryï¿½s accession and go on to show that her reign was a lot more stable, and her regime much more competent and innovative, than once believed.This fully revised third edition includes a diverse range of primary sources and sheds new light on a variety of topics, such as:ï¿½ The complexities of Maryï¿½s relations with Philip of Spainï¿½ The restoration of Catholicismï¿½ The use of visual as well as literary means to legitimize and support Maryï¿½s ruleï¿½ The context for the war with FranceThis concise and thought-provoking introduction is ideal for students and interested readers at all levels.
