Character description

Mary Stuart, known as Mary, Queen of Scots (1542–1587) was Queen of Scotland in her own right. She was brought up in France with the children of King Henri II and Catherine de Medici, and married their son Francois in 1558. After his death, she returned to Scotland and tried to rule a country torn by factionalism. She was ultimately deposed in favor of, James VI, her infant son by Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, and fled to England. She lived there as a captive in varying degrees of comfort for many years, before being beheaded for plotting against Elizabeth. To many Catholics, Elizabeth was a bastard, and Mary was the rightful queen of England.
