Synopsis: Mary Queen of Scots passed her childhood in France and married the Dauphin to become Queen of France at the age of sixteen. Widowed less than two years later, she returned to Scotland as Queen after an absence of thirteen years. Her life then entered its best known phase: the early struggles with John Knox and the unruly Scottish nobility; the fatal marriage to Darnley and his mysterious death; her marriage to Bothwell, the chief suspect, that led directly to her long English captivity at the hands of Queen Elizabeth; the poignant and extraordinary story of her long imprisonment that ended with the labyrinthine Babington plot to free her, and her execution at the age of forty-four.

From the Back Cover: “A book that will leave few readers unmoved.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“She was sometimes reviled as a scheming whore, sometimes revered as a misunderstood martyr. But she was invariably regarded as fascinating. Antonia Fraser’s richly readable biography demonstrates that Mary’s great fascination continues unabated.”
Time

“One of the most fascinating figures in history.”
The Columbus Dispatch

“Compassionate, illuminating, rich in human interest.”
The New York Times

“With grace, sensitivity and a sharp eye for detail, Lady Antonia Fraser has succeeded not only in recapturing the real Mary from the symbol but also in illuminating the chaotic age in which she lived.”
Newsweek

Book Description Book Club Associates, London England, 1973. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. Reprint. Mary Queen of Scots, undoubtedly one of the most romantic figures of British history, has always captured the popular imagination. Married to the Dauphin to become Queen of France at the age of sixteen, Mary was widowed less than two years later. She then returned to Scotland as Queen after an absence of thirteen years, only to plunge into a maelstrom of intrigue as she clashed with the unruly Scottish nobility and the Calvinist firebrand John Knox. Her fatal marraige to Darnley, his mysterious murder and her subsequent marriage to Bothwell, the chief suspect, mark her as one of the most explosively passionate women ever to brand their names in the annals of history. Her eventual execution set the seal on her tragic, flamoyant career. Lady Antonia Fraser's bestselling biography provides an immensely readable and moving answer to the question: 'what was Mary Queen of Scots really like?' The most acclaimed biography of the decade. Over 638 pages; 24 pages of illustrations.some shelfwear to d/j edges. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardback. Bookseller Inventory # 072199
