Have placed a series of Kings and Queens caches in this area - you could park and walk the neighborhood or drive and park near each one. Cache series theme is based on our British roots.

MARY I (Bloody Mary) 1553 - 1558

Daughter of HENRY VIII and Catherine of Aragon. A devout Catholic, she married Philip of Spain. Mary attempted to enforce the wholesale conversion of England to Catholicism. She carried this out with the utmost severity. The Protestant bishops, Latimer, Ridley and Archbishop Cranmer were among those burnt at the stake. The place, in Broad Street Oxford, is marked by a bronze cross. The country was plunged into a bitter blood bath, which is why she is remembered as Bloody Mary. She died in 1558 at Lambeth Palace.

Use these clues for the coordinates:

1. Mary started her reign in "ABCD"

2. Daughter of Henry "E"

Final Coordinates are: N D2 C4.EAB W AA7 AD.67E
