Mary I, Queen of England
Mary Tudor, Queen of England and Ireland has recently been receiving scholarly attention--not just the "interpretation" by the London Dungeon--with biographies and studies. Last year I reviewed Judith Richard's biography on Amazon.com and provided a review essay for First Things on-line that mentioned Richard's book, Linda Porter's biography, Eamon Duffy's Fires of Faith, and this biography I browsed through at Blackwell's in Oxford last July, but is just being released here in the USA next month: Anna Whitelock's Mary Tudor: Princess, Bastard, Queen. Random House describes the book further here.
