Her husband was Spanish King Philip II, a marriage which produced no children. Marrying into the Hapsburg family led to her being crowned Queen of Naples and Queen of Jerusalem, though the latter title was purely formal as the Kingdom of Jerusalem had fallen more than two centuries earlier.
Upon her death in 1558, Mary was succeeded by her half-sister, Elizabeth, a Protestant whom Mary had imprisoned in the Tower of London. Elizabeth restored that faith to state religion status and persecuted Catholics, though usually not as violently as Mary had persecuted Protestants.
Mary I in Ruled Britannia
When Philip's Armada conquered England in 1588, Philip used his former marriage to Mary and the status of King of England it had briefly bestowed on him to install his daughter, Isabella, as Queen of England.
Mary's violent suppressions of political and religious dissent led to her nickname "Bloody Mary," a name which was not openly used by the English during Isabella's reign for fear of betraying Protestant and Elizabethan sentiments.
