Mary was often mistreated for her beliefs. She was criticised by the likes of Hugh Latimer and Nicholas Ridely. People started to call the Queen ‘Bloody Mary’ and called her ‘The Monstrous Murderer’. I can gain this information from Source B. This tells me that Latimer criticised rich people as well as Catholic people and was a preacher. Ridely was a Bishop of London. This source is reliable as Source C shows Latimer and Ridely getting killed in the woodcut. I also know from my own knowledge and other internet resources that Mary was called ‘The Monstrous Murderer’. Mary was also accused of being a witch. The source that tells me this is Source H. This shows a picture of Mary blessing rings which are supposed to cure sickness. I feel this image is trying to portray that Mary had powers. This piece should not be trusted. We know that witches are not actually real. However, the person who has created it surprised me.
