Images of Mary Stuart

By

She was briefly Queen of France, and became Queen of Scotland from her infancy. Mary, Queen of Scots, was considered a rival for the throne of Queen Elizabeth I - a special threat since Mary was a Catholic and Elizabeth a Protestant. Mary's choices in marriage were questionable and tragic and she was accused of plotting to overthrow Elizabeth. Mary Stuart's son, James VI of Scotland, was the first Stuart king of England, named by Elizabeth as her successor.
