    The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots, 1542 - 1587 .... Mary, Queen of Scots, was executed on 8 February 1587 at Fotheringhay Castle, in Northamptonshire. After nineteen years in captivity, she was found guilty of plotting the assassination of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. This watercolour was made for a Dutch magistrate who compiled an album of historical prints and drawings in 1613. Not surprisingly, the costume and architecture look very Dutch, but the picture does reflect eye witness accounts of the event. Mary's clothes were burnt to prevent supporters keeping them as relics, and this scene is shown on the far left.

"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.

Mary Tudor (Bloody Mary) earned for having had 300 people burned at the stake (in three and 1/2 years) in her religious persecutions to restore the Roman Catholic Church's place in England. Mary was Elizabeth I's older sister. Mary was the daughter of King Henry VIII's first wife, Catherine of Aragon,

portrait of Mary, queen of Scots Such an interesting person and such an amazing story. Elizabeth always gets the good press, but my family supported the Stuarts.

Mary Queen of Scots was one of the most fascinating and controversial monarchs of 16th century Europe. At one time, she claimed the crowns of four nations - Scotland, France, England and Ireland. Her physical beauty and kind heart were acknowledged even by her enemies. Yet she lacked the political skills to rule successfully in Scotland. Her second marriage was unpopular and ended in murder and scandal; her third was even less popular and ended in forced abdication in favor of her infant son...
