My hazy sight focuses on the greasy bartender as he comes toward me while wiping down the bar's countertops. He smirks, revealing yellow, rotten teeth. "What's yer poison, madame?" I shut my blood-shot eyes. I hadn't slept in days. My stupid new neighbor has had a different girl to accompany him in bed every night this past week.

Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's younger sister, is not to be confused with Mary Tudor, Henry's daughter, who is known as Bloody Mary. Henry's sister     was first married to Louis XII of France, much against her will. She was 19 at the time; Louis was 52. He only lived for 3 months after the wedding --  Mary then secretly married Charles Brandon, the Earl of Suffolk -- a close friend of Henry VIII's.

Mary I (reigned 1553-1558) was Queen of England. Her brutal persecution of Protestants caused her opponents to give her the sobriquet "Bloody Mary". In 1554 Mary married Philip of Spain, becoming queen consort of Habsburg Spain on his accession in 1556. Mary is remembered for her restoration of Roman Catholicism after the short-lived Protestant reign of her half-brother. During her five-year reign, she had over 280 religious dissenters burned at the stake in the Marian persecutions.
