Poisoning, Cancer and Smallpox: What the Queens of England Dead From

She became known as Bloody Mary (Mary the Bloody in Portuguese) for persecuting hundreds of Protestants to restore Catholicism in England.

Historians believe that Queen Mary I suffered from cancer of the uterus or ovaries, which, along with failure to conceive an heir, could have led to her death at just 42 years of age.

Queen Elizabeth I

Elizabeth I was the last monarch in the Tudor line of succession, ruling from 1558 to 1603.

She became known as the Virgin Queen because she was never married, but she is believed to have had many lovers and lovers.

Queen Elizabeth I died at the age of 70, although the cause of her death remains a mystery. Some believe the blood poisoning is caused by the use of lead-based makeup known as Venetian cereus. Others say it was pneumonia, strep throat (infected tonsils) or cancer.

Queen Mary 2

Mary II was the only queen in English and British history to have joint sovereignty and powers equal to that of her husband and cousin William of Orange. His reign lasted from 1689 to 1694.

Queen Mary II died of smallpox at the age of only 32.

Anne was the last Stuart Emperor and her reign lasted from 1702 to 1714. She was best known for signing the Act of Union between the Kingdoms of England and Scotland in 1707 and later uniting the countries of England, Wales and Scotland to form Britain.

The monarch suffered 18 pregnancies, resulting in four miscarriages, eight stillbirths, six live births, who died before her second birthday, and an heir, Prince William, who died at the age of 11.

Queen Anne died at the age of 49 after suffering a series of strokes a few days earlier.

Queen Victoria

Victoria was the last monarch of the Royal House of Hanover and reigned from 1837 to 1901, becoming the second longest reigning monarch in the country and the longest reigning queen in the world.

Victoria, who used to ride in an open carriage, was the target of eight assassination attempts in her lifetime.

In the last year of her life, she became so weak that she had to use a wheelchair, she was almost blind, and she had lost so much weight that an osteoarthritic hump formed in her upper back. Queen Victoria died at the age of 81.
