If she lived today, she would definitely be in therapy for quite some time. I am sure she anticipated a happy married life, but even that was denied her. Her false pregnancies were the final humiliation, which could, I’m sure, have been avoided had a doctor been allowed examine her. Even in death, her name is mud with the title of ‘Bloody Mary’. I often wonder if she was that much more blood thirsty than her contemporary monarchs.
