Pregnant … or not?
Mary longed for a baby. She was delighted when she thought she was
pregnant soon after marrying her husband. However, she soon found
out she wasn’t pregnant at all; her stomach pains were a symptom of
cancer. The poem ridicules the fact that nothing with grow inside her.
Problems in childbirth
Mary was rumoured to have had some children, but each little girl
was stillborn – Mary was suppose to have them buried secretly in a
long row of graves
King Philip of Spain – the love rat
Mary’s
husband wasn’t very loving. King Philip hardly ever saw her during
their marriage. Also he had affairs with lots of other women. In
Tudor England, this was called cuckolding.
Changing her mind
Contrary means opposite. If a person is contrary it often means they
are taking a different view just for the sake of it. Mary was accused
of being awkward by wanting to change England back to a Catholic
country.
A poor taste in music
Mary enjoyed listening to the sound of church bells. This music was
unfashionable at the time.
