In Papists, Spaniards & Other Strangers, the author presents meticulously researched and documented accounts of the short and violent reign of the boy-King Edward VI and the struggles between the contending survivors for the throne of England. That throne had been made into the focus of both religious and civil power by Henry VIII, and whoever would seize it would be able to determine the future of the country in terms of the religious conflicts then raging throughout Europe. In this volume, upon the death of Edward VI, it would be Mary Tudor who would finally triumph, to the relief and joy of a hitherto cowed and deeply troubled nation. Mary's bloodless victory and triumphant march into London, and utterly joyous coronation are all treated here, almost as if the reader herself were an eyewitness to the pageantry.
