The only Queen to be know as Bloody Mary was Mary l of England. Mary l was anything but a beauty, she did not bathe in the blood of virgins.The reason she became known as Bloody Mary was because she had a number of protestants put to death during her regin (1553-1558) when she tryed to re-establish Catholicisim as the religion of  the land after the reigns of her father Henry Vlll, who established himself as the head of a new religion because he wanted to divorce and remarry and he did 6 times.......The mirror witch goes by many names:Bloody Mary, Bloody bones, Hell Mary, Mary Worth, Agnes,Black Aggie,Mary Lou,Sally and a few more.

Go to the bathroom and look into the mirror with the lights off and then say Bloody Mary 13 times a woman will appear and scratch your face off :o

The research into Bloody Mary goes  back to 1978, when folklorist Janet Langlois published her essay on the legend. Belief in summoning the mirror-witch was even at that time widespread throughout the U.S.

Mary is summoned whenever squealing girls get together for a sleepover, but boys have been known to call on her too. She's said to be a witch who was executed a hundred years ago for plying the black arts, or a woman of more modern times who died in a local car accident in which her face was hideously mutilated.

Some confuse the mirror witch with Mary I of England, whom history remembers as "Bloody Mary." An expanded version of that confusion has it that this murdering British queen killed young girls so she could bathe in their blood to preserve her youthful appearance.

Mary I of England (1553-1558) was anything but a famed beauty terrified of losing her looks -- she was a matronly, fortyish woman who had about as much sense of style as a dust mop. The idea of her bathing in the blood of slaughtered virgins to preserve her loveliness is ludicrous. She came by the moniker "Bloody Mary" because she had a number of Protestants put to death during her reign, as she tried to re-establish Catholicism as the religion of the land after the reigns of her father (Henry VIII, he who married six wives over the course of his lifetime and established himself as the head of a new religion rather than tolerate the Pope's saying he couldn't divorce wife #1 to marry wife #2) and her brother (Edward VI, who ruled after Henry died but passed away himself at the age of 16). Mary was a devoutly religious woman who saw what she was doing as the saving of her subjects' souls from eternal damnation, and in those times -- as crazy as this sounds now -- the eternal wellbeing of a soul was deemed far more important than the comparatively fleeting life of a person. That bringing the country back to Catholicism would also safeguard her throne was also a major consideration.

Mary I was the half sister of Elizabeth I (1558-1603). Both were daughters of Henry VIII, but Mary's mother was Katherine of Aragon and Elizabeth's mother was Anne Boleyn. Elizabeth I became Queen when Mary died, and she reigned for many years, coming to be called "The Virgin Queen" because she never married.

Some muddlings of this "murdering queen" variant claim that Mary, Queen of Scots (1542-1567) is the "bloody Mary" of mirror summonings. Though this Mary was indeed a vain and foolish woman, history does not know her as a murderous one. (Well, okay, she did have a hand in doing away with a husband. But she didn't go after her subjects en masse, as did Mary I of England.)

So, although there was a British queen known as "Bloody Mary," no connection between her and the mirror witch has surfaced, save for their both having the same name. Likewise, the "Mary Worth" appellation of the malevolent apparition doesn't appear to be drawn from the lead character of a popular comic strip of the same name. In lore, as elsewhere, coincidences occur.

Here are some variations I found also..

The avenging spirit goes by many names: Bloody Mary, Bloody Bones, Hell Mary, Mary Worth, Mary Worthington, Mary Whales, Mary Johnson, Mary Lou, Mary Jane, Sally, Kathy, Agnes, Black Agnes, Aggie, Svarte Madame.

Summoning Mary requires the right chant. "I believe in Mary Worth" is the key phrase according to one version, but others require the shouting of "Kathy, come out!" or the repetition of "Bloody Mary" into the mirror as many times as the ritual demands. (Sometimes Bloody Mary gets more of a script and is summoned by calls of "Bloody Mary! I killed your baby!")

The precise requirements of the ritual vary. Some specify that the mirror must be illuminated by a single candle; in others, there must be a candle on each side. In some versions, the message to Mary is repeated by just one girl who is either a volunteer or one selected by the others to summon up the mirror-witch. The number of chants needed to fetch Mary also varies.

What the mirror-witch does upon arrival varies too. She may strike her summoner dead, drive her mad, or fiercely scratch her face. She may merely peer malevolently out through the mirror, or she may drag one of the girls back through it to live with her.

woa, sorry, there people for kinda dyin on y'all...agian, lol, but the version of blue baby i heard, was about a child, who was stolen from an orphanage, by two sisters, back in the 1800's, and on one cold decembers day, the keeper of the orphanage, came to them because she had heard that they had the child, so in a panic, the sisters left the child out on a window sill, and hoped he would be safe, but after the lady had left, and they returned for the child, he was gone...At first, they thought he had fallen, but there was no sign of him below, the boy had basically just dissapeared.  And the sisters went to go pout, and cry out for their now "blue baby" and his mornfully sad face was said to have appeared in the mirror, except instead of him being normal colored, he was a pale blue, and looked like a corpse would after it has been frozen for some time...The way i heard that you call "blue baby" was that on a cold night, turn your heat off, let your house get pretty, cold, and go infront of a mirror, and mornfully call out for your "blue baby" and he is said to appear when you do this...i've never tried...sry again for dying on y'all
I've got the urge....to ghost hunt...

I heard one kinda like that called Blue Boy; it was about a boarding school for girls and they found a little boy that had been abandon on a bitter cold night,so they let him in thier room and they hide him several nights,untill one night the house mom came to thier room and they hide him out on the window ledge. The mom made the girls go with her and the boy was left "out in the cold" when the girls returned they went to the window to find that the boy was gone from the ledge (they were on a upper floor)so they thought he had fallen and went outside to find no trace of him anywhere,no imprints in the snow no nothin he was just gone with no explaination.As time pasted the boarding house has been changed into a girls dorm,there have been apparitions of a boy in the window;sad face and blue :o
