    Is anyone else here doing this as their final module for OCR History? I haven't seen a thread for it. Maybe we could share some revision techniques, or information, websites etc... That is if ANYONE is doing this module!! Lol. Post away. Complaining about the no. of beheadings in Mary's reign, or taking the mick out of Henry VIII's beard is also acceptable!

    I'm not doing the module (different board, different topics) but did do AS coursework on rebellions under Henry VII. More importantly, Mary didn't execute all that many people, and was quite nice to small dogs, so really doesn't deserve her reputation. And the cocktail isn't worth it.

    Lol...never tried the cocktail. I guess Mary doesn't deserve her reputation...I'm a revisionist myself, have had to look at the 'mid-tudor crisis' idea for Unit 6. Having said that, this fabulous quote by Elton always makes me smile:

    'It has become something of a commonplace to assert that Mary Tudor was the most attractive member of her family - kind, long-suffering, gentle, considerate. The evidence of her recorded words hardly bears this out; it shows her rather to have been arrogant, assertive, bigoted, stubborn, suspicious and rather stupid. She was ill prepared to be England’s first woman sovereign. She had ever been her mother’s daughter rather than her father’s; devoid of political skill, unable to compromise, set only the wholesale reversal of a generation’s history, she was a manifest portent of strife.
    Thirty-seven years old in 1553, she seized a power rightfully hers for the exercise of which she was utterly unsuited.'


    - - -he didn't hold back there, did he?
