Mary Queen of Scots 1542-1587 - (Mary Stuart or Mary I of Scotland) was queen regnant of Scotland. Mary spent most of her childhood in France whilst Scotland was ruled by regents, and in 1558, she married Francis, Dauphin of France. Vivacious, beautiful, and clever, Mary had a promising childhood. She was considered a pretty child and later, as a woman, strikingly attractive. She was a favourite with everyone, except Henry II's wife Catherine de' Medici.

" Justiniano en el año 529, prohibió la libertad de conciencia y obligó a los paganos a adquirir instrucción cristiana , luego a bautizarse, bajo pena de exilio o confiscación de sus bienes; les prohibió retornar al paganismo a los conversos a la religión del amor; prohibió enseñar o disponer de pensiones públicas". Filosofar se volvió peligroso por lo menos durante mil años. ( Onfray, Michel, Tratado de teología, Barcelona, Anagrama, 2006, p.160).
Justinian attempted to reconquer Western territory but without lasting success. He rebuilt Constantinople in classical style. Justinian's successors concentrated on the defense of their Eastern territories.

Portrait of Queen Mary I. Bloody Mary.
1553 Woman, formerly called Mary Tudor but possibly Jane Grey by Hans Eworth. "Though often posthumously depicted, painted, and portrayed, Lady Jane Grey has actually been invisible to a modern viewing audience through lack of any authentic life portrait. Unknown Lady by Hans Eworth, however, contains a number of clues that reasonably suggest identifying the young woman depicted as Lady Jane Grey.

Lady Jane Grey (1537–1554) attributed to Hans Eworth and dated circa 1550 by Stephan Edwards in an article of 2005. The painting is in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. If so, this would be the only extant portrait of England's '9 day Queen' made during her lifetime.

Elizabeth I (1533 – 1603) was Queen of England and Ireland from 17 November 1558 until her death. Often known as "The Virgin Queen", Elizabeth was the fifth and last monarch of the Tudor dynasty and the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Elizabeth remained unmarried and childless which preserved her power, and her 44 years on the throne provided welcome stability for the kingdom and helped forge a sense of national identity.

Empress Elizabeth of Austria (1837-1898) is remembered for her extraordinary beauty as the consort of Emperor Franz Joseph I. "Sissi" was 16 and Franz Joseph 23 when they married. Franz Joseph chose Sissi over her older sister who had been planned for him to marry. But Sissi did not have a happy life, never fully reciprocating Franz Joseph's love, and dominated by her mother-in-law at the Habsburg Court.

"Mary Queen of Scots" At Burghley House, Lincolnshire, called "Tudor lady, possibly Mary Queen of Scots" If this is Mary Stuart, it is a very poor likeness, judging by the body of her portraits. Looks more like one of those sad Scandinavian or Habsburg lasses to me.

The death of Queen Elizabeth I., as imagined by artist, Paul Delaroche (1828). In March 1603 Elizabeth was described as being unwell and seemed depressed. She took up residence in one of her favourite palaces – Richmond – close to the River Thames. She refused to allow herself to be examined, and she refused take to her bed – standing for hours on end. As her condition deteriorated her ladies-in-waiting spread cushions on the floor, and Elizabeth eventually lay down on them.

Kösem Sultan was one of the most powerful women in Ottoman history. Favorite consort and later wife of Ottoman Sultan Ahmed I, she achieved power and influenced the politics of the Ottoman Empire through her husband, then through her sons Murad IV and Ibrahim I (the Mad) and finally through her minor grandson Mehmed IV. She was a prominent figure during the sultanate of the women. She was official regent twice and was thereby one of two women to have been formal regents of the Ottoman Empire.
