Memoirs of Mary Queen of Scots
Memoirs of Mary Queen of Scots | Carolly Erickson
2 posts | 6 read | 5 to read
Queen of Scotland at six days of age, married as a young girl to the invalid young king of France, Mary took the reins of the unruly kingdom of Scotland as a young widow and fought to keep her throne. A second marriage to her handsome but dissolute cousin Lord Darnley ended in murder and scandal, while a third to the dashing Lord Bothwell, the love of her life, gave her joy but widened the scandal and surrounded her with enduring ill repute. Unable to rise above the violence and disorder that swirled around her, Mary escaped to England" "only to find herself a prisoner of her ruthless, merciless cousin Queen Elizabeth. Here, in a riveting first-person account, is the enchanting woman whose name still evokes excitement and compassion" "and whose death under the headsman's axe still draws forth our sorrow."

Good book, having read a lot about Elizabeth I, it was nice to get a different opinion of her. Royal conflict is a deadly game and everyone in it knows it.
