Mary I (1516-1558), Queen of England. She married Philip II of Spain in 1554 and sided with Spain in war with France, leading to the loss of Calais in 1557, England's last continental possession. She restored Papal authority in England and her repression of Protestants earned her the sobriquet 'Bloody Mary'. Illustration to Gilbert Burnet's 'History of the Reformation'.
