England’s first Queen regnant, Mary I, the daughter of King Henry VIII and Queen Catherine of Aragon, was born on 18 February 1516, at the Palace of Placentia in Greenwich. The aim of this conference is to bring together scholars doing new work on Queen Mary herself, her joint reign with her husband, King Philip of Spain (1554-1558), and on England’s place in Europe and the rest of the world during her reign.
