Not often associated with the 'Bloody Mary' legend, some tales maintain that 'Bloody Mary' referred to the Transylvanian noblewoman who lived during the same time period as Queen Mary Tudor.
A noblewoman wears a gown similar to that of the queen, comprising a stiff corset top, heavy petticoat, underskirt, overskirt, ruff and hat.
A well-dressed noblewoman knelt beside her still form.
The noblewoman withdrew a delicate knife and flicked the inside of her wrist with the tip of the blade.
"Do you know the tavern with the sword and dagger on its sign?" the noblewoman asked.
