Mary Stuart is the Queen of Scotland, as the only surviving child of James V of Scotland. Her father died days after her birth, and she inherited the crown. She had been engaged to the then Prince Francis since they were children, and when they were 16, they were married.

She had a miscarriage and later engaged in a short affair with Louis Condé until he tried to take the crown from her husband. When Francis died she returned to Scotland and has since married King Darnley.

Early Life

Mary Stuart was born in Linlithgow, but grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Holyrood Palace until she was attacked by the English and sent to live in France by her mother when she was 7.

The young Queen Mary of Scotland, Prince Francis and his older half-brother, Sebastian all met when they were 6-years old at French Court. Mary and Francis were already engaged, and Mary was living in France for protection from England.

The three were playmates and the younger two were educated together. They were constantly seen running up and down the stairs, making fun of each other and playing games in the courtyard.

Two years later at 9-years old, Mary was forced to leave after an assassination attempt on her life was made by the English. Mary was no longer safe so was sent to live at a a Convent with her new caretaker, Mother Superior, until she was to be married.

Season 3

Extreme Measures
Mary Stuart, King Francis and Sebastian were all wondering why King Antoine is back at French Court. Worried he'd learned of Francis illness, as a Bourbon, he'd have the best claim to the throne after Prince Charles. If he rallied his Protestant supporters, he could replace Charles as king. Bash asked to handle him. Francis told his brother that he knows he blame him for what happened with Kenna, but he would not "handle" King Antoine.

In A Clearing
Mary is thanking God in a chapel for Francis' recovery when Francis finds her and takes her out sailing. Nicholas approaches her with a peace accord from Queen Elizabeth - French and English troops will leave Scotland as long as she signs away her claim to the English throne.

King Francis and Queen Mary are talking about the state of Scotland. Mary tells him she was going to reinstate my half brother James Stuart, a Protestant. 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.

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 if James ruled Scotland well, Mary would never have to go home.

She deliberates for some time before signing away her claim. She and Greer watch as new banners - without the English coat of arms - are put up in the throne room before Francis says he wants to go to Paris with her and dance at the Louvre. While in the carriage, they begin to kiss and embrace before Mary orders the carriage to stop in the woods. She takes Francis to a lake so they can swim and after swimming they make love. Mary tells him she'll bring back their lunch but on her way back with the basket, she is kidnapped by armed men who want to kill her. Francis finds her and fights the men as Mary screams for the guards. Although Francis and the guards kill most of the attackers, Francis collapses and realizes that his fate was always meant to be death. He asks her to stay in France until Catherine is regent. She promises and he dies. Queen Catherine has to pull her away from Francis' body. Grief-stricken, Mary confronts Nicholas and accuses Elizabeth of being behind the attack and throws the peace accord in the fire. She also tears down the banners in the throne room and screams. During the funeral, Narcisse informs her that the attackers had been Scottish Protestant radicals. When Francis' casket is pulled away she walks behind it instead of riding in the carriage. A few weeks later, she returns the crown to Catherine.

Gideon Blackburn warned Mary that Queen Elizabeth would see her raising a Catholic army as an act of aggression. Even if it was to stop John Knox. As The Vatican has been determined to reclaim England ever since she turned the country Protestant after Mary Tudor her Catholic sister died.

Strange Bedfellow
Mary begain looking for any Catholic males in the line of succession. The most likely candidate was distant cousin of her and Elizabeth's named Joseph Tudor. After Mary Tudor died and Queen Elizabeth turned England Protestant, Joseph fled to France. Joseph Tudor appealed to King Henry and Queen Catherine for asylum when Elizabeth took the throne, and started persecuting all of Mary Tudor's Catholic supporters. As France is a Catholic monarchy, King Henry granted him sanctuary.

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 .

Mary was very upset over this, because if the Duchess left, she took her support and the promise of funding with her. Lucrezia agreed to reconsider if she was given the lands belonging to Lord Theodore Davies. The lands were quite valuable, and come with a title, The Earldom of Menteith.

Mary tells him, Catherine had informed her he'dbeen there at the end. She added she was thankful Lola wasn't alone. But also added Knox would pay, but not by Narcisse's hand.

Narcisse left Mary with a parting gift. Telling her she was still free to take legal steps against Knox, but he'd taken what Knox valued the most, his testicles. Mary told him he was a monster, and his vile act would not ease his pain. Narcisse insisted revenge was not meant to ease pain, it was meant to balance the scales. Because he will live with the pain of Lola's death for the rest of his life, but now, he had made sure everyone responsible for it would forever suffer too.
