Bloody Mary

When you stand in a dark bathroom which is illuminated by a single candle, you simply look into the mirror that is there in the bathroom and you chant her name repeatedly for three times, a ghost will appear, sometimes holding a dead body, other times promising to come after yours. Do you believe in this? Obviously many of your answers would be no. But this has been a mystery for the whole world as many people around the world have seen her.  You may be thinking who is “her” in this bloody paragraph; here “her” refers to “Bloody Mary.” The fact remains though that some people do say they see strange things and even Bloody Mary herself when they play the game. According to different people from different place, there are many different rituals on how to conjure her in the mirror, often doing things like whispering I stole your baby Bloody Mary’ three times.

Queen Mary I who was the first queen of England and was the only child of the notorious King Henry VII and Catherine of Aragon. In order to make things worse, for years she was disowned by her father and was made to do things like serve in the household of her younger half-sister as a reminder of her new status as an illegitimate child. As unpredictable father was the most powerful man in England, he could make her life miserable or put her in danger at any moment.

Finally Mary Tudor became Queen of England at the age of thirty seven and thus she got a chance to do things in her way, but unfortunately her way turned out to be things like burning people only because they refused to follow the same religion as hers. Meanwhile, due to her attitude, people eventually ended up giving her a new name that was “Bloody Mary.”

As she was a Queen, there was a great pressure on Mary to produce an heir. However, she had a hard time conceiving – often a problem with the inbred bloodline of ancient royals – until she had what is now known as an ectopic pregnancy: a ghost baby. Mary exhibited signs of pregnancy but bore no child. Her throne was given to her sister, Elizabeth, who put her to death.

Her name can still be heard today, chanted by children in dark bathroom mirrors the world over, all hoping for a terrifying glimpse of the ghost known only as Bloody Mary. Bloody Mary has still been a great mystery for the World….mary-tudor
