In A Clearing

A he is both religiously tolerant and loyal to her. So much so, that his own Protestant supporters ousted him when he refused to turn on her with Queen Elizabeth. Stating Scotland knows she could easily appoint a Catholic regent, and they'd be foolish to defy her. Assuming, of course, James wants to be reinstated. But Mary plan on writing him a very convincing letter.

Later, Mary write a letter demanding it be delivered into the hands of her brother James, Earl of Moray.

Mary decided to give up her claim for herslef, and for Scotland. To give James a fighting chance to rule as regent, in a time of peace, not war. And ff James ruled Scotland well, Mary would never have to go home, and stay with King Francis forever.

James had reallocated the country's grain reserves, as ary suggested?, but retreating English soldiers plundered the crops and took them just over the border, where Elizabeth has amassed her troops and The Scots are starting to panic. Last week some men crossed into England and raided the soldiers' camps to get the barley back, they did not succeed, and eight Scotish people were captured.

Mary, Lord Cunningham, and Lord Rutherford pick up the conversation a few days later. Lord Rutherford states the have been loyal to Mary's rule, even after she withdrew the troops protecting the borders. But her brother James can only command so much power. What the Scots need now is their queen. Everyone in Scotland is starving .

Our Undoing
After Don Carlos falls and cracks his head, Queen Catherine and Mary Stuart are paniking on what to do. Catherine tells Mary she better pray he dies, as his father is the most powerful, most pious monarch in the world. The prince could convince him the machine was something that she and Francis used to use, and Mary introduced it to the prince, and invited her in as a participant. And nothing would save them from Spain's wrath.

Mary found out Duke of Alba know about Don Carlos' bedroom hobbies. Queen Catherine tells them, they too helped hide the prince's predilections from his father, fearing he would disown his son, the countries only heir to the throne. Mary Stuart promised to do nothing with the information. Saying she's in the market for a husband and wanted to remain removed from scandal. In return, Duke of Alba will say while on a stroll, the prince wanted to pick wildflowers for Mary. He climbed a wall, slipped, and cracked his skull, all for the love of Queen Mary.

Duke of Alba agrres to the marriage. As who would be kinder to him than Mary, certainly not the prideful King Philip would lock him out of sight forever. In his state, Don Carlos has no marriage prospects. Spain will see Mary's acceptance of his condition as a win.

Greer told Mary Stuart The Spanish alliance from her marriage to Don Carlos would empower her and their nation against Elizabeth, and having Spain would allow her to bring Lola and her family home alive.

Spain is willing to reject Queen Elizabeth's offer of marriage, if Queen Mary agrees to grant her husband The Crown Matrimonial. If Mary dies childless, the Crown Matrimonial guarantees Don Carlos remains king of Scotland. King Philip makes the request most respectfully, as Spain is offering Scotland so much in return.

Mary and Lord Narcisse are in a fight after the shipwreck. Mary promises after he can go back to England, to return Lola home, and she wil go to Edinburgh, to meet the regent and her half-brother James, who will restore here as Scotland's Queen.

Mary and Sebastian were still determined to make it to Edinburgh Castle, but Stéphane Narcisse had broken away from them to head to England.
