Mary Queen of Scots, aged 19, in white mourning to mark the loss of three members of her immediate family within a period of 18 months. Her father-in-law Henry II died in July 1559; her mother Mary of Guise died in Scotland in June 1560; and in December of the same year her husband Francis II died. Mary, no longer Queen of France, returned to Scotland in August 1561.
Mary Queen of Scots? Does anyone know if this is Mary, the artist, or the location of the painting?
"Mary, Queen of Scots, age 9" I have never been quite convinced that this is Mary--Mary had a long, narrow, beaky nose (not unlike her cousin Elizabeth's) and this lady's nose is positively snub! If it's Mary, it certainly doesn't look like the Clouet portraits.
Queen Mary. The family called her Mae. She was engaged to the eldest son of Edward VII, the Duke of Clarence. He died of influenza. George the second son fell in love with her and they married.
