Mary I – Bloody Mary (British Monarchy Documentary) | Timeline


hay midgets! How you feel to day? [narrator]- On a summer’s day in 1553 after ten days of traveling, a magnificent procession reached the capitol. At it’s head was Mary Tudor, the eldest daughter of King Henry the Vlll. She had come to claim her inheritance. The crown of England. [David]- Mary entered the city of London in triumph on the third of august 1553. The buildings of the city that Mary knew have disappeared almost completely. But it’s boundaries are the same of the modern city of London’s financial district you see behind me. Mary entered from the east. At Aldgate and she rode through streets hung with precious tapestries to the Tower of London The people wept tears of joy and Mary quoted ecstatically from the bible ‘If God be with us, who can be against us?’ [Narrator] This day was Mary’s victory over all those who had opposed her. But the joyful scenes were not to last. Mary was a queen driven by conscience and by faith. She would send hundreds of her subjects to burn at the stake for what she believed was right. A vision of England restored to it’s traditional Catholic faith. Mary was born on the eighteenth of February 1516. A Greenwich palace beside the River Thames. She was given a splendid christening and the bells rand for joy. [David]- The Princess Mary was an extraordinarily important child. Her parents Henry the VIII and Catherine of Aragon had already been married for seven years when she was born and they’d had several children. but all the other children were either stillborn or they died shortly after birth. Mary was the first child to survive. This meant that she was heir to the crown of England. There was only one drawback, Mary was a girl and a woman had never ruled England as Queen. Mary’s destiny was clear. She was a royal princess who will become a royal bride and only reign as her husband’s wife. The search for the right husband started earlier *Sign of the Cross Amen When Mary was only two she was betrothed to the Dauphin, the heir to the throne of France in a ceremony which mimicked all the features of a royal wedding. This was just the first of many engagements Over the next ten years the promise of Mary’s hand in marriage was repeatedly used for treaties with other countries. As daughter of King Henry and heir to the throne, Mary was an attractive proposition But her mother’s family was even grander Catherine of Aragon was descendant of the great Spanish royal family whose empire now stretched across Western Europe and even to the new world of America. Catherine made sure that Mary did not forget the Spanish roots Mary spoke Spanish as well as English and proudly identified herself with her Spanish family. After her father the King, Mary was treated as the most important person in England. She liked music, dancing, and games Henry referred to her as his pearl in the world. Catherine too was devoted to Mary who was fiercely ambitious for her daughter. She made sure that Marys education would fit her for her destiney. How ever great it might be. David: this letter was written by Cathrine to Mary when she was age 8 or nine.


  1. So does anyone else think that her father cursed the whole family considering none of his children had an heir? Maybe marrying your brothers wife isn't a smart thing.

  2. Mary was compromised by the archangel Gabriel who told her to rename the son of God Messiah to born Jesus Christ and create a Covenant with Mary before the son of God Messiah was born within the Roman synagogues.

  3. Religions should be abolished . No religion should kill or control in the name of any “god” …………a “god “ they don’t even know.

  4. Mary was so Catholic she burned Protestants……omg!…..common factor = Jesus on cross!!!…..??????100% lunatic!…..evil…..😷😷😷😷😷

  5. Catholic Mary and her insatiable desire for revenge…Philip and his extramarital affairs…. Hmmmm!….history repeats in Evil Buckingham palace!….. Incorrigible sinners!…..😷😷😷😷😷😱😱😱😱😱no heirs…..God's curses?????

  6. Lesson = don't hate….Elizabeth and Mary buried side by side??????ha!ha!ha!….haters sleep together!….😵😱

  7. I love history of all kind and this docomentary was very interesting indeed. Boy how times have changed since way back then.

  8. Narcissism born of a life of privilege and coupled with the delusional thinking patterns of indoctrinated religion does truly a mad mind make.

  9. Mr Starky’s commentary is extremely biased. Elizabeth was equally murderous and had a high body count, with no value for her subjects, the people. I love history but I hate when people glorify these monarchs who had no time for the common citizen.

  10. I. Believe it was Charles Dickens who described Henry Vlll as a spot off blood and grease,on the pages off British history, I think that’s about right don’t you.

  11. "A simple slab of black marble and the name of perpetual infamy: Bloody Mary"

    Most metal conclusion to a documentary EVER!

  12. Absolutely love these old documentaries involving the monarchy. Can't say they grabbed my attention much in school (many moons ago), though they certainly do today. The lifestyles, the treachery, another world ago.

  13. Cromwell was beheaded by orders of Henry VIII (about 4 years after he had Anne Boleyn beheaded). Cromwell was NOT burned at the stake by Queen Mary. Thomas Cranmer was burnt at the stake by Queen Mary. This is SUCH SLOPPY work. BTW: Queen Mary sent Jane Grey, who young King Edward wanted to be queen, to the tower and later had her beheaded. Get your facts straight before you make a documentary!!!

  14. Since i have been aware of the trans agenda it is becoming more obvious that it has been going on for centuries the mary in your thumbnail is a fella. .

  15. I just can’t believe that the English are such inbred fools, that they think it’s cool to still have a Royal family. These idiots give these inbred old world hillbillies their gold and riches to this day. Don’t ever criticize the United States limeys, you incestuous rats.

  16. I mary hrm…if you can help hrm Dianna still stuck in the states south ca…spread to the court of London……please I cursty…. You met me as a young child. Stay is also involved not the one in childhood pictures Dale of Canada or Iceland is the one masquerading as charles that's why so many Canada polo players …see Canada Kate and William of their fake allegiances Dianna.

  17. I don’t understand how they could betroth her repeatedly since the age of two. If the betrothal is a bargaining chip, wouldn’t it be useless the second time? Or were the early betrothals symbolic? Anyone out there know?

  18. I like to know why Elizabeth was not A legitimate heir born to a Queen. Was her brother Edward also a baster not Legit and they also.

  19. The queen was out of order how can you keep your cousin hostage. Not one of Mary's kids didn't rescue her which was strange.

  20. I just finished watching The Tudors and I felt terrible for Mary. After watching this, I feel even worse for the poor girl. She was a victim of her time 🙁

  21. So we're just going to completely skip past the part where dude says the king's death was predicted by a horoscope? Hello?

  22. This narrator/host is so annoying to me. Bobbing his head at every syllable like a honing pigeon; they should’ve just cut out clips with him and kept it solely to voiceover narration.

  23. Its no wonder she had an 'out for blood' attitude. Her brothers Protestant Church movement was a bit overly aggressive and a little too soon

  24. No No .. Queen Mary, aka Bloody Mary, wasn't being cruel, vindictive.. not acting like a Nero.. Burning people at the stake for not accepting Catholicism, wanting to be Protestant.. No.. It's just a a slap on the wrist punishment.. Queen Mary was sweet, kind, loving of her country's people like her own children, as she acclaimed to say .. lol

    Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely

    It is any wonder why Monarchs, the Monarchy, along with Emperors – ie; Absolute Total Power Rule is no less horrific, deadly and evil as Socialism-Marxism-Communism-Fascism

  25. For some reason the captions were on when I started the video, and at 0:00 it read "hay midgets!"


    …also, she was more like Toasty Mary, really.

  26. If ever a father screwed up a child–so is the case here. It seems to me, Mary was acting out of bitterness toward her father, and vengance for her mother.

  27. There is no evidence that Anne Bolyin mistreated Mary. She tried to befriend her, but it was Mary's stuburn aditude that prevented a friendship but also Anne didn't bore a live son

  28. In many ways Mary I's life was a tragedy of epic proportions. Through so much of her life she comes across has the put upon heroine / victim. Someone who suffered for no good reason and was often very courageous. She also showed real ability on so many occasions like when she finally took the throne. Sadly her reign destroyed the image of the Heroine. Her upbringing and suffering had reinforced certain characteristics in her which were a detriment to her and her nation. And the burning of nearly 300 people for the "crime" of beliefs different from hers have deservedly clouded her reputation.I do feel sorry for her, but I feel much more sorry for her victims.
