Inglaterra, siglo XVI. Después de enviudar, María Estuardo abandona Francia y regresa a Escocia, dispuesta a ocupar el trono del que es heredera. Pero los conflictos se acumulan: la nobleza le es hostil, empezando por su hermanastro el conde de Moray, y, además, su apego al catolicismo choca con la fe que predica John Knox, fundador de la Iglesia presbiteriana de Escocia. Por otro lado, su prima Isabel Tudor, hija ilegítima de Enrique VIII, teme que reclame sus derechos a la corona inglesa. Su único aliado es el conde Bothwell, comandante de las tropas escocesas, de quien se enamora, aunque por razones de estado tendrá que casarse con Lord Danley, que no tardará en morir asesinado.
