Mary,

QUEEN,

Eldest daughter of Henry VIII., and Catherine of Aragon was born at Greenwich 18th February, 1518. Fuller says of her that she "partook of both her parents in her person and properties, having from her father a broad face, big voice, and undaunted spirit, from her mother a swarthy complexion, and a mind wholly given to the Romish religion." The events of her life and reign need not be recorded here. She died 17th November, 1558.
