    It was Rebellion started by Thomas Wyatt the younger. It was started because Queen Mary I wanted to make England Catholic and restrict the Protestants.

    Thomas Wyatt considered Mary's proposed marriage to the future king Philip II of Spain to be an affront to England's national honor. He started a conspiracy and raised an army. On Feb. 3, 1554, Wyatt entered the outskirts of London with some 3,000 men. He advanced swiftly to the center of the city, but his troops became disheartened when the populace did not join their cause. Confronted by the royal forces, Wyatt surrendered after a brief engagement. He was tried on March 15 and executed less than a month later.
