It was Mary's own fault that she died. Elizabeth had to protect her position and Mary did have support in her belief that she should be queen. Elizabeth gave her ample opportunity to renounce her claim on the throne. However, Elizabeth had experienced imprisonment in the Tower of London and living with the threat of execution (from her own sister Mary) and she did not want to have Mary to have to die.
