This series of historical accounts profiles strong women who took extraordinary measures to achieve and maintain power-including murder, deception, and black magic-examining the women's reputations in the context of their eras. Just how wicked were they? The books allow readers to decide for themselves if these infamous ladies were indeed heartless and evil or simply out of touch and making the most of their circumstances. The first reigning Queen of England, Mary Tudor believed fervently that Catholicism should be the religion of the land, leading her to burn at the stake hundreds of Protestants. This visual history explores this real-life monarch who was at once a great yet brutal leader, detailing her day-to-day life and pivotal moments in the House of Tudor. Gorgeous illustrations and an engaging story bring to life a real dastardly dame who, fueled by her faith, created a religious firestorm and changed the course of English history.
