Mary I of England[edit]

More Tudor monarchs with featured articles! -- Emsworth 15 Aug 2004

  • ObjectSupport - another fine article, but:
    1. the last part of the last sentence of section 3, Reign, reads "...Elizabeth was imprisoned in the Tower of London, but was put under house arrest after two months." - was she put under house arrest in the Tower or somewhere else?
    2. section 5, Popularity deals with her later unpopularity (indeed, could be entitled "Lack of popularity"), but not her initial public support (section 2, Accession, says "the country remained devoted to Mary"), and does not explain how quickly her 'approval rating' fell. -- ALoan (Talk) 12:06, 16 Aug 2004 (UTC) -- ALoan (Talk) 15:35, 16 Aug 2004 (UTC)
    • Thanks, I have added the appropriate information. -- Emsworth
  • Object - article is too short for a person this important. I'll work on expanding this on Friday. --mav 06:04, 19 Aug 2004 (UTC)
    • Expanded and two images added. Changing vote to accept. I'll change to a strong accept if the lead section is improved/expanded a bit and somebody makes sure I didn't mess anything up (esp British spellings and POV). --mav 08:43, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)
      • Thank you for your additions. I have checked for British spellings, etc., and will afterwards expand the lead section. -- Emsworth 15:13, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)
