    At first glance the portraits of Mary appear to be inconsistent with one another and with any handsome original.

Mary Queen of Scots As soon as the victory had been won, Darnley was found to be changeable, quarrelsome, and, presumably, also vicious.

    The five-year-old Mary was sent to Francewhere she grew up in the French Court. The tragic, scandal-embroiled queen of Scotland and France has captured the imagination of people for centuries. Despite the fact that she was the sovereign queen of another country, Mary was tried by an English court and condemned; her son, James, who had not seen his mother since infancy and now had his sights fixed on succeeding to the English throne, raised no objections. On her way back to Edinburgh on 24 April, Mary was abducted, willingly or not, by Lord Bothwell and his men and taken to Dunbar Castlewhere he may have raped her. It was a chilling scene, redeemed by the great personal dignity with which Mary met her fate. Both the rising and the excommunication were so independent of the main course of affairs that, when the surprise they caused was over, the scheme for the Norfolk marriage resumed its previous course, and an Italian banker, Ridolfi, promised to obtain papal support for it.
