My previous post, History Howlers – Henry VIII looked at the school-child historical howlers relating to Henry VIII, as depicted by the 1930s cigarette card manufacturer, Churchman. Today’s post continues this by displaying images of Henry VIII’s daughter, Mary I, and howlers relating to her reign. This was a smaller cigarette card size and the card is number 5 of 40.
It’s wonderful that this card, without explicitly stating it, manages to totally capture that greatest of all Tudor historical howlers – the ‘fact’ that Mary I, Queen of England and Mary, Queen of Scots, was the same person!
