Paperback. Reprint. Mary Queen of Scots, undoubtedly one of the most romantic figures of British history, has always captured the popular imagination. Married to the Dauphin to become Queen of France at the age of 16, Mary was widowed less than 2yrs later. She then returned to Scotland as Queen after an absence of 13yrs, only to plunge into a maelstrom of intrigue as she clashed with the unruly Scottish nobility and the Calvinist firebrand John Knox. Her fatal marriage to Darnley, his mysterious murder and her subsequent marriage to Bothwell, the chief suspect, mark her as one of the most explosively passionate women ever to brand their names in the annals of history. Her eventual execution set the seal on her tragic, flamboyant career. The author's biography provides an immensely readable and moving answer to the question : 'What was Mary Queen of Scots really like?' Part One: The Young Queen; Part Two: The Personal Rule; Part Three: The Captivity. Illus., Appendix, Reference Notes, Bibliog. and Index. 713pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp., sunned covers. Vg+
