First-hand anecdotes and extracts from diaries, letters, and rare historical sources offer a fascinating history of a divisive figure, as well as remarkable insights into the Tudor eraMary Queen of Scots is perhaps one of the most controversial and divisive monarchs in regal history. Her story reads like a particularly spicy novel, with murder, kidnap, adultery, assassination, and execution. To some she is one of the most wronged women in history, a pawn used and abused by her family in the great monarchical marriage game; to others, a murderous adulteress who committed regicide to marry her lover and then spent years in captivity for the crime, endlessly plotting the demise of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I of England. This book covers the entire breathtaking scope of her amazing life and examines the immense cultural legacy she left behind, from the Schiller play of the 1800s to the CW teen drama "Reign." Temptress, terrorist, or tragic queen, this book will give you the lowdown on one of history's most misunderstood monarchs.
