    Mary, Queen of Scots

    Queen of France as a child and Queen of Scotland later in life, Mary Queen of Scots also had a claim to the English throne - then occupied by Elizabeth 1. She was kept in captivity in 19 years until it was finally discovered, through the Babington Plot, that she had indeed conspired to assassinate Elizabeth 1 and take the throne for herself. She was beheaded for treason.
