Summary The purpose of this biography is to rescue a minor Tudor character from the curious combination of fact and fiction that has previously enveloped her, and present instead a clear-cut picture of one whose historical position in the complicated diplomacy of the sixteenth century has never been properly assessed. Though more romantic that that of many, her life is not untypical of other princesses of her time, who played important, if small, parts in its history. Mary Tudor was the favorite sister of a dominant monarch, Henry VIII, and her family characteristics are apparent in everything she did. A colorful figure in a colorful age, Mary adds another chapter, however brief, to the Tudor record. - Preface.
