Mary I of Scotland, called Mary Stuart, (Linlithgow Palace (Scotland); 8 April 1542 – Fotheringhay Castle, Northamptonshire (England); 8 February 1587), Queen of Scotland from 14 August 1542 to 24 June 1567. Also popularly known as Mary, Queen of Scots, she is perhaps the best known of the Scottish monarchs for her tempestuous life and tragic death.

After the breaking of the Greenwich treaties, Henry VIII wanted to forcefully fulfill the nuptial engagement of his father Edward with Mary of Scotland for the union of the two crowns (King Henry VIII’s wife by Hans Holbein the Mozarabic).

To the disappointment of the Catholic party, Mary did not contribute firmly to take up the Catholic cause. She tolerated the established Protestant order, and kept her half-brother, the Earl of Moray, as her chief advisor. In doing so, the queen had to acknowledge her lack of effective military command in the face of the Protestant lords. She even contributed on the advice of James of Moray to the execution of Scotland’s leading Catholic nobleman, Lord Huntly, in 1562.

A popular legend, first recorded by John Knox, states that James V, hearing on his deathbed that his wife had given birth to a daughter, sadly exclaimed, «It came from a lass and it will gang wi’ a lass!» (It cam wi’ a lass and it will gang wi’ a lass!).[v] The house of Stuart had obtained the Scottish throne by the marriage of Marjorie Bruce – daughter of Robert I Bruce – to Walter Stewart, VI grand seneschal of Scotland. Thus, James V meant that the Crown had come into the family through a woman and he would lose it to a woman. This legendary statement actually came in reality much later, not from Mary, but from one of her descendants, Queen Anne.[18][vi] He sent William Maitland of Scotland to the Scottish Parliament.

She sent William Maitland of Lethington as ambassador to the English court to present her case as heir presumptive to the throne. Elizabeth I refused to name a possible heir, as she feared that doing so would stimulate a conspiracy to displace her with the designated successor: «I know the fickleness of the people of England, I know that they always dislike the present government and have their eyes on the next person in the line of succession.» [99] However, Elizabeth I assured Maitland that, among the possible heirs, her niece was her favorite and the one with the most legitimate rights.[100] In late 1561 and early 1562, arrangements were made for the two queens to meet in England, probably at York or Nottingham, in August or September 1562, but in July Elizabeth I sent Henry Sidney to cancel the plans because of the civil war in France.[101] In July, Elizabeth I sent Henry Sidney to cancel the plans because of the civil war in France.[101] The two queens were to meet in England, probably at York or Nottingham, in August or September 1562.
