Life goes well for the Princess until her father meets and falls in love with Anne Boleyn. This prompts him to demand an annulment of his marriage to Catherine, which would make the princess a bastard. Mary's father develops a strong attachment towards Anne Boleyn, who is slowly rising in the ranks as her mother is lowered. Years pass, and Henry grows even colder to his daughter. She is banished, forbidden to see her mother, and is living in constant fear of death once Anne takes the throne and her mother's marriage to the King is declared null and void. She is eventually summoned back to court to serve her baby half-sister, Elizabeth. She continues to fear death at her father's hands.
Things are starting to look up for Mary, because Jane supports her, and her father welcomes Mary back into his life. But as she enjoys herself, Mary's supporters constantly remind her that she is not completely safe, as a part of Anne Boleyn still lingers: Mary's baby half-sister, Elizabeth.
Mary is told that Elizabeth will eventually grow up to be her rival to the throne, but Mary argues that Elizabeth is just a child. The book ends with a statement from Mary saying that she had not known that her sister would become her enemy, her nightmare, foreshadowing the future struggles between the two princesses.
Though she is finally in her father's favor again, considerable damage has been done. The events of the past few years have been enough to turn the princess into the bitter, cruel woman known as "Bloody Mary" for her angry persecution of English Protestants.
When she became queen at the age of thirty-seven, she would burn hundreds of people at the stake for their religious belief, execute her sixteen-year-old cousin, Lady Jane Grey and imprison her own half-sister Elizabeth in the Tower of London.
Historical accuracy[ edit ] Susan, Mary's friend and a main character in the novel, is portrayed as the daughter of the Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk , making her Anne Boleyn's first cousin. The character is likely based upon Susan Clarencieux, who was a favored maid of Mary, but she was not the daughter of the duke. He in fact had no children by the name of Susan, making the scene where he brutally strikes her for defending her mistress over the claims of her illegitimacy, causing her lip to be split open, entirely fictional.
The book depicts Mary as being crowned "princess of Wales" at age nine, officially making her heiress to the crown over her bastard half brother Henry Fitzroy. Mary was never invested as Princess of Wales.
She was briefly styled as such and acted as such, but was never formally a Princess of Wales. Anne Boleyn was much kinder and more tolerant of Mary than the portrayal in the novel.
Though she did not object to Henry's dissolving of Mary's household and moving her to join the infant Elizabeth, she tried a number of times to reconcile with her stepdaughter, and all of her efforts were in vain, for Mary rebutted them all.
Also, despite popular myth, there is no proof that Jane Seymour actively worked for Mary's reinstatement as a princess. She was rather passive and did nothing to help Mary while she was forced to the document.
