Rface Elizabeth becomes and uneasy about her association with her cousin Mary James Stewart Earl of Moray bastard brother of Mary lacking half the genetic code he needed to be King is named regent and baby James is crowned King His head so small the crown had to be held over his head Trials are conducted servants are hanged and uartered The real criminals continue to via for position We all know what ventually happens to Mary Alison Weir says In the circumstances she must with justice be regarded as one of the most wronged women in history I agree few things went right for Mary ueen of Scotts but she also made several terrible mistakes She did not vet Darnley She needed a strong man to help her control the conniving scheming ager lords of her realm Darnley was nothing than a boy and too dedicated to his personal pleasures She herself needed to be purposeful in her decisions The traitors that conspired with Darnley to oust her from power needed to be dealt with firmly She should never have agreed to marry Bothwell The Protestant marriage conflicted with her Catholicism and lost her support from all uarters When she had the chance to leave Scotland she needed to go anywhere but England As it turns out I believe most of the top royalty of Scotland was involved in the killing of Darnley through participation knowledge of the vent or part of the cover up afterwards I do believe that Mary was innocent With her goal to be ueen of England she needed Darnley to have a chance at accomplishing that aspiration Killing him as satisfactory as that would be would keep her from what she wanted most The conspirators never scape the specter of Darnley s death ither Bothwell dies in prison in Norway Moray is assassinated Others are poisoned hanged stabbed and bludgeoned Payment for the murder of Darnley continued to be Empire of the Saviours (Chronicles of a Cosmic Warlord, exacted for twenty years after his death Alison Weir books are compelling and meticulously researched Her writing style and presentation make history not only accessible butnjoyable Weir s rendition of the Ex On The Beach evidence is balanced andven though it is hard for us not to have sympathy for Mary given that she is so fatefully conspired against from the beginning the victim of royal paranoia and deceived by those that she needed to trust Weir makes a case that part of Mary s downfall can be attributed to her own lofty ambitions Alison Weir thoroughly presents and critiues what is known about this complex and murky affair Most of the book is readable some of it is a page turner and on some technical parts who was at a meeting legal precedents translation issues it can be a slog Written in 2003 I believe it remains the definitive work on Lord Darnley s murderWeir covers the main Good Thinking elements of the story with clarity than I have seen anywhere specifically How Mary came to marry Darnley inclusive of Elizabeth s mixed signals and the possibility of Leicester as a husband the Rizzio murder and after it Mary s attempt to portray a good family up to the birth of James witnesses on the night of the Kirk o Fieldxplosion the cover ups and the power grabs that followed the murder how Bothwell took and used Mary and the civil war that followed The trial in England and Elizabeth s Death in Mumbai evolving motives A thorough dissection of the Casket Letters particularly how some dates can t be possible and how the words are not Mary s manner of writingRather than write a review I ll make some observations Mary had to living in a constant state of PTSD She lost her father in her first week onarth and was shipped off to France to marry the Dauphin at age 5 By age 18 she was a widowed ueen of France and the orphaned ueen of Scotland and or less sent back to rule a land she knew little about and hardly spoke its language Her second husband for whom she fought a civil war was most likely alcoholic and syphilitic sleeping with men and women and had tried to kill her or maybe just get her to abort their child by having her lute player stabbed 50 times while she watched at gunpoint This is just the start Both Mary and Darnley were 6 feet tall There has to be something to this perhaps in Mary s falling in love and the people s awe of their towering royal couple Mary s imprisonment saved her life The nobles can uickly raise armies with thousands of soldiers at what seems to be a day or two notice How is this done Mary spent very little time with her baby James and until captivity seems not to miss him What should be Baccarat : La lgende du cristal expected of an 18 year old monarch raised to dance smile andmbroider For centuries
people believed in the divine right of kings Mary wasn t the first believed in the divine right of kings Mary wasn t the first let her sense of O Colégio de Todos os Segredos entitlement to ruin her life I havencountered yet another historical work that bears accurately the maxim that truth is indeed stranger than fiction I m sure that the master of Scottish historical fiction Sir Walter Scott would struggle to concoct a dastardly series of plots that Alison Weir sets to untangle in her 2003 publication Mary ueen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley In fact it is a piece of Scott s verse which springs to mind that sums up this book precisely Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceiveAfter a span of four hundred and fifty years this pic deceiveAfter a span of four hundred and fifty years this pic theory can be laid to rest as a conspiracy fact I finished this read on November the fifth a day celebrated in England after Guy Fawkes s Gunpowder Plot But here is Scotland s original perhaps Zoete tranen even the inspiration for Catesby s treason With Peter Falk like tenacity Weir has hounded down the truthxposed the guilty parties and to uote the books review from the Observer this is a monumental piece of historical detective work Of course history shows that as a captive ueen frustrated and foolish Mary lost her head at Fotheringay after dabbling in the Ridolfi Throckmorton and Babington plots However before the years of incarceration in England Mary ueen of Scots became Water Music entangled in Scottish plots resulting in the Rizzio murder the Darnley murder the Bothwell marriage and finally her forced abdicationHistorians down the centuries have swallowed the bait hook line and sinker Such is the complexity woven into the thread of sixteenth century power politics the reader has to keep theye on the ball I ve had to re read many pages to keep my nose on the trail and there are over five hundred pages here but what a worth while read I ve been re reading this over the last monthWeir does a good analysis of the whole murder of Darnley and while she believes Mary to be innocent she doesn t show the Scots ueen as truly a white sheep The last 100 hunderd pages however are a little slow.

dauphin of France and he ascended the throne a year later Just when Punishment Of The Cheating Wife events seemed to be going in Mary s favor Francis died after only 18 months as King Mary was not that welcome in France due to fears she would make a play for the throne She returned to Scotland to assume her birthright as ueen Mary was the ultimate bachelorette She launched a assiduous search across all of Europe searching for a suitable candidate She tried several alliances all of which fell through for various reasons In thend she was left with Henry Stuart Lord Darnley and as discombobulated as she felt her life was before it was about to take a severe turn for the worse Darnley on the surface seemed the perfect catch He was tall handsome debonair young man of culture and good breeding A man not that far removed from having his own claim for the throne He pressed Mary hard from the beginning to grant him crown matrimonial that would allow him to ascend to the throne of Scotland in the vent of Mary s death without issue Mary was already starting to see cracks in the veneer of her relationship with Darnley He was not well liked He was vindictive arrogant vain violent

again after a long separation his face is disfigured and his health is deteriorating The first thing Darnley wants to do is hop in the sack but Mary of course finds his condition repugnant and probably knows nough about the contagion to know that she would be putting her future health in jeopardy She leaves him resting at Kirk O Field with his attendants to attend a dance at Holyrood At 2AM the house at Kirk O Field is blown to smithereens not one stone left on top of another Bodies are pulled from the wreckage but the King is not among them Only after searching farther a field do they
