How to Write about a Queen Regnant, Leah Gilliatt

This article seeks to analyse how England’s first queen regnant was portrayed and how contemporary supporters of Mary reconciled the queen’s female body natural with the tradition of male monarchy and role of the monarch as God’s representative. It considers representations of Queen Mary I as presented in five ballads and in a letter from Marco Antonio Faitta (secretary to Cardinal Pole) to Ippolito Chizzola, Doctor in Divinity.
