    Yes she did deserve the title bloody Mary.1. Mary’s first act was to repeal the Protestant legislation of her brother, Edward VI, hurling England into a phase of severe religious persecution. Her major goal was the re-establishment of Catholicism in England, a goal to which she was totally committed. Mary’s marriage to the militant Catholic Philip of Spain was again designed to enforce Roman Catholicism on the realm. 2. 300 people (including former Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer and many of the most prominent members of society) were burned at the stake for heresy,3. England suffered during the reign of Mary I: the economy was in ruin, religious dissent reached a zenith.

    We have to look at historical people and their acts in context, not from our 21st century viewpoint which is very different.Here are some things in Mary’s defence.When she came to the throne after Lady Jane Grey’s brief time as Queen, she was very popular and greeted as the rightful heir. Mary interpreted this also as gladness that she would bring back Catholicism.Mary did not want to execute Jane Grey for treason; she understood that Jane was a child and had been manipulated onto the throne. However, after Wyatt’s Rebellion, she was seen as being far too lenient and merciful; the Emperor would not allow her to marry Philip until Jane was removed, and Mary desperately wanted to marry him – she believed she needed a husband to help her rule (women were not seen as able to rule by themselves and needed a man’s guidance) and also give her an heir. She reluctantly complied, and Jane was executed after a long time in the Tower. Mary gave her chances to save herself. It was also the only way to remove threats to the monarch in those days – if Jane were allowed to live, she would have been the focus of plots against Mary in the future.Mary truly believed, as a devout Catholic, that she was saving the souls of the heretics by burning (nearly 300 of them), as a foretaste of the flames of hell would help them to see the “error” or their ways and allow them to save themselves. We, in a far less godly age, fail to understand this viewpoint. Religion and faith were hugely important to people in those days.”Mary and her advisers “honestly believed themselves to be applying the only remedy left for the removal of a mortal disease from the body politic…What they did was on an unprecedented scale in England because heresy existed on an unprecedented scale” (Innes, “England under the Tudors”, 232; and cf. Gairdner, “Lollardy”, I,327).” [external link] …”The nickname [of "Bloody Mary"] was a bit unfair because the religious persecutions were more the result of the established heresy laws rather than brutality and callousness on Mary’s part. The revival of these old heresy laws resulted in violent conflicts which led to severe punishments such as burning at the stake.” [external link] … (This is actually on the Mary, Queen of Scots site, but they were two different Queens. There’s a reminder at the top of the page)As a person, Mary was kind and full of goodness, says Alison Weir in “Children of England”. She loved children and would have been an excellent wife and mother. She had had a very difficult upbringing; she loved her mother, Katherine of Aragon, and her father had made it very difficult for her while he was trying to marry Anne Boleyn. Anne was cruel to her; Mary was made subservient to little Elizabeth, and she had to sign a paper agreeing that her father’s marriage to her mother was invalid, thereby betraying her mother and saying that she herself was illegitimate. This gave her feelings of terrible guilt for the rest of her life. She thought she had found love with Philip of Spain, but he was 11 years younger and only marrying Mary out of duty; Mary fell half in love with him on seeing his portrait, but he spent a lot of time away from her. She had a very unhappy life until she came to the throne.I’ve given you some sites below which are not severely biased against her.
