Was Mary Tudor Likely To Be Successful at Making England Catholic Again?

Mary Tudor was the first born of Henry VIII and Henry’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon on the 18th February 1516, in Greenwich Palace. Mary Tudor was raised as devout catholic, and experienced a first-class education, being an only child. In 1553, the death of Mary’s half-brother Edward VI had approached her, and she was expected to be the next reigning monarch. But unexpectedly it wrote that Lady Jane grey, (who was a protestant) should perform as the next queen in Edward’s will. But this wasn’t too bad, as, Lady Jane Grey only achieved to stay queen for 9 days, because people of England protested for Mary to ...view middle of the document...

The thought of 284 Protestants being burned was shocking to the population of England, and made more Protestants become Catholics, which was great for England at the time, and a huge help for Mary.
Mary also made sure that married priests in Edward VI’s year of monarchy that were married, were divorced. Some ways to gain England’s support towards Catholicism, didn’t even need any effort, as some people still continued to favour the catholic customs, and protested for it to be brought back to Britain. Also the fact that England was based on the Catholic religion for almost centuries, but protestant for only 6 years which was proof, that that the country was stabilized with being Catholic, and should continue to be catholic as it was England’s origin. Another huge advantage for Mary was her husband, as has Phillip II of Spain. Phillip II of Spain was the current King of Spain at the time, which was a huge benefit to Mary because at the time, Spain was the most powerful country in Europe and a catholic country, which meant that she could seek the support from Edward and Spain, but also from other European Kings and Queens.
Along with the advantages, Mary also had to face the disadvantages on achieving to make England catholic again, some of which were very strong points, so Mary found it quiet difficult to reach her aim. One of the most strongest points of view, was that in the year of 1553, an amount of 400 powerful and capable Protestants had arrived in Europe, and during this time the Protestants were very overpowering and required to remove Mary from the throne, and worse, they wouldn’t stop trying and very persistent about it. Even when Mary would do the burnings at stake, some Protestants were careless about the fact that they were going to die as they were willing decease as martyrs rather that convert to Catholics, which meant that some Protestants in England weren’t afraid of Mary actions, therefore would never convert. Many deaths of Protestants caused by Mary were also seen as holy to other Protestants, as it reveals that they died for their beliefs. This seemed to be inspirational to Protestants, and encouraged them in a way to do the same. But she gained a lack of popularity...
