🎧 Mary I: Myths Vs. Reality
Latest Podcast Episodes 🎧 • 45m
Queen Mary I was the daughter of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon. She reigned - as England’s first Queen Regnant - between 1553-1558. Unlike her sister and successor Elizabeth I, Mary’s posthumous reputation has largely focussed on religious persecution. But what does the written evidence from her own lifetime say about the manner in which she ruled?
In today’s edition of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Dr. Valerie Schutte and Dr. Jessica S. Hower. Their extensive research into Queen Mary I asks new questions and seeks new answers that deepen our understanding of her reign, her significance and her impact on the early modern era and its popular culture.
The Senior Producer was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.
