Elizabeth & Mary: Queen Mary I is known to history as Bloody Mary; Queen Elizabeth I, Gloria. The two nicknames of the first ruling queens of England could not be further apart, but did these sisters, although different in faith, share many similarities? Henry VIII's daughters were both forced to admit their illegitimacy and both banished from court. While one fought for the throne, the other made it her own.
