Reprinted and updated with new photos 2017 (11th printing)


Mary, Queen of Scots, is one of Scotland’s most enigmatic, controversial and tragic monarchs, whose troubled life was ended by beheading at the hands of her cousin, Elizabeth I of England.


This wee book covers Mary’s fascinating life: the death of her father James V just after she was born, exile and marriage to the young Dauphin of France, return to Scotland as queen, disastrous marriages to Lord Darnley and the Earl of Bothwell, and imprisonment, ill treatment and execution in England.


Fifty great places to visit associated with Mary are included, plus information on opening, location, facilities, and websites.


Many maps, portraits, photos and a family tree enhance the text. In its 11th printing, Joyce Miller has written a very accessible, gripping, poignant and enduringly popular account of Mary.
