    Francis II of France & his wife Mary, Queen of Scots. (The double portrait was taken from Francis' mother, Catherine De Medici's "Book of Hours".) Note Mary's lovely auburn hair -- a trait derived from her Tudor grandmother, red-headed Margaret, sister of red-headed Henry VIII. Heredity will tell....
