WI: Mary Tudor, eldest daughter of Henry VIII, and who ultimately became queen after the early death of Edward VI, had never become queen. She was never particularly healthy, and here she dies a few years before Edward. Does Elizabeth automatically come to the throne? Or do factions at court try to prevent her succession? Without the Protestant persecutions that happened under Mary, how does this affect Elizabeth's policies, if she does ultimately succeed Edward?
