As soon as Mary I took the throne, Simon Renaud, the Spanish ambassador to  England, immediately engineered a marriage between Mary and the Crown Prince of  Spain, Philip II, allying the two countries. Although mostly quite merciful to her enemies  and conspirators against her, Mary treated her religious opponents with ruthlessness.  Her marriage to a Spanish prince only reinforced her religious fanaticism. Although  Elizabeth remained Protestant, Mary started working hard to restore Catholicism in  England. Although Elizabeth was next in line in the succession, Mary placed two other relatives  above Elizabeth in her court, citing Elizabeth's illegitimate birth as her reason. Of  course, this greatly insulted the princess. Although she remained fairly loyal despite her  anger, many people in England encouraged her to conspire against her increasingly  unpopular sister. In 1554, Sir Thomas Wyatt the Younger's Rebellion rose and failed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
