On this day in Tudor history, 15th June 1536, Mary (the future Mary I), daughter of King Henry VIII and his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, received an intimidating visit at her home at Hunsdon.

The visit was from members of the king’s council, who had been sent by her father, the king, to persuade the twenty-year-old into accepting her father as supreme head of the Church in England, and acknowledging that she was not the legitimate heir to the throne.

When she refused to do so, they bullied and threatened her.

Find out exactly what happened on this day in 1536 in today’s “on this day in Tudor history” video, where I share a contemporary account explain how Mary did end up reconciling with her father the king.

Below, are two more videos on Mary and her treatment in 1536. I will also be doing a special “Questions about Anne Boleyn” video on Anne Boleyn and Mary, so keep an eye out for that video. There are quite a few videos on Anne Boleyn on the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society YouTube Channel, so do consider subscribing to the channel and having a good browse.
