Mary Queen of Scots: Truth or Lies

    By

    Mary, Queen of Scots: naive, selfish, oblivious and self-indulgent fool who divided her nation and brought it to the brink of disaster? Or Mary, Queen of Scots: diligent, shrewd, wise and benevolent heroine who sacrificed herself as a martyr for her religion? Mary, Queen of Scots is one of the most famous and enigmatic Scots in history. The debate rages on as fiercely as ever. To some, Mary was a naive fool who allowed her errant heart to rule her head. To others, she was a clever, strategic thinker who secured the Scottish throne and the direction of the British monarchy. Murder, infidelity and intrigue permeate this story of one of the most turbulent times in history. Rosalind Marshall is renowned for her work on Mary, Queen of Scots and she takes us through the key myths that surround this fascinating story.
