    Mary Queen of Scots spent her early years in Scotland, having succeeded to the throne as an infant after the death of her father, James V. In , the Scottish government concluded that the only means of resisting English belligerence was for the 5-year-old Mary to be sent to France for her education and to marry the Dauphin Francis, thus cementing their alliance with the French.   One book I’ll recommend on the topic is The Betrayal of Mary, Queen of Scots: Elizabeth I and Her Greatest Rival by Kate Williams, which digs into all of this bonkers, juicy, messy, tragic story. Another great book on the topic of these two women is Elizabeth and Mary: Cousins, Rivals, Queens by .

    Mary, Queen of Scots, Queen Without a Country by Kathryn Lasky (this is mostly about her childhood). Mary, Queen of Scots by John Abbot Free Online (this is mostly about her adulthood). Child’s History of the World (CHOW) by Hillyer (pages ). Book or website to learn French. Encyclopedias or access to internet.   Known most commonly as the Queen of Scots or Mary Stuart, Mary was the great-niece of the infamous Henry VIII, the Tudor king with a penchant for divorces and decapitations.

    Queen of Scots, the first full-scale biography of Mary in more than 30 years, offers a singularly novel, nuanced, and dramatic portrait of one of history's greatest women. John Guy draws on sources, many previously unstudied, as varied as the secret communiques of English spies and Mary's own letters. About the Author. John Guy is an award-winning historian of Tudor England. A Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, he is the author of Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart, a major international bestseller that won the Whitbread Award and the Marsh Biography Award and was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist.
