I was a great king's daughter and a queen in bygone times;
My story's told in one of Mother Goose's little rhymes.
My garden grew, blood-watered, and by pretty maids well-fed,
With bells and shells along the way, the tortured soon lay dead.
My mother was a queen who, supplanted, lost her place.
My marriage was political; no love showed in his face;
He roamed far distant from my side to avoid my many flaws.
But unlike certain other queens, I died from natural cause.
Littler sister then was queen; the world knew of her fame.
Knowing of my story, can you now pronounce my name?

I only got it b/c I thought of a Bloody Mary, which by the way, sounds gross! (I've never ventured to try it myself!)
Great teaser! Sounds like it took a lot of research but is way underrated. It should be the teaser of the day or s/t. Anyone agree?
