Best Answer

In comparison to her contemporary monarchs she had far fewer protestants put to death.(Scotland, Spain at least 2000) Compared with her own father it was a fairly limited persecution (Henry VIII) The Title comes more out of Protestant Propaganda (foxe's Book of Martyrs etc) than the actual fact that she was a cruel tyrant for the time.
