Description of Mary Queen of the Scots

Queen Mary Stuart was one of the most beloved and controversial women in Scottish history. The granddaughter of King James IV and his wife Margaret Tudor, Queen Mary’s status as heiress-apparent to the English throne paired with the violence of the Scottish Reformation set the stage for one of the most dramatic and poorly understood lives of the 16th century.

Mary Queen of the Scots tells Mary’s true story, focusing primarily on her reign as queen of Scotland, celebrating her life more than her death, and showing us all why she was truly a woman ahead of her time.

My Review of Mary Queen of the Scots

I love the story of Mary Queen of the Scots. The child queen who lived most of her life as a prisoner.

This version of her tale is very easy to read. It is geared more as a simplified version of her very confusing reign as Queen of Scotland. It would be perfect for introducing a student to that turbulent time in history. The student would have the complete history of her reign as Queen and could pursue a more indepth recounting if they were intrigued by this version.

Well done Laurel Rockefeller.
