    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....

    Mary, Queen of Scots (bn. 1542) and her first husband Francis II of France. Mary was the only child of James V of Scotland and Mary of Guise. She was raised in the French court of Henry II and Catherine de' Medici. The young newly married couple became King and Queen of France in 1559 not even a year after their marriage. Francis died less than a year after that leaving Mary a widow and she returned to Scotland to rule and cause trouble for her lords and her cousin Queen Elizabeth I.

"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.
