Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory, whether it's plausible or not. Is there any famous Tudor conspiracies or ones you've heard from people less than qualified to make such assumptions?
I heard the most ridiculous theory, from a university student no less, that Catherine Howard was really Anne Boleyn. He said something about Henry didn't have the heart to kill Anne so he exiled her and she took up a new identity. After the peace and tranquility of Jane and Anne of Cleves he decided he wanted spunky Anne back and so married her under the identity of Katherine Howard. His proof? That she looked like Anne Boleyn and that he got rid of her in the same manner as he did with Anne B when he got sick of her. Let's just say our professor wasn't very impressed!

So obviously there was a time when Mary went from being sympathetic and beloved Queen to 'Bloody Mary', can anyone tell me more about when it happened, who were the main instigators of the myth, what was there motive etc?
I'm finding it all quite interesting and would love to be able to compare it to the Gloriana myth of Elizabeth. Can any of our more learned friends on here give me some details, perhaps a good book to recommend?
