Mary, Queen of Scots. Stage 1 (400 headwords)
Scotland in 1561 was a wild country. When the young Queen of Scots returned from France, at first her people were pleased to see her. Her husband, the King of France, was dead, and now she wanted a new husband. But Mary, Queen of Scots, was a Catholic Queen, and most of Scotland was now Protestant. There was also a Protestant Queen in England — Elizabeth I. And in those times, men were happy to fight and die for their church.
Who could the young Queen marry? Who were her friends, and who were her enemies? Mary was beautiful and clever. She loved life, she loved adventure, and she loved men. Too many men, perhaps. People said that she was 'mad, bad, and dangerous to know'. But was that really true?
It is 1587, and Mary sits, a tired unhappy woman, in Fotheringhay Castle in England. She is a prisoner of Queen Elizabeth, and soon she will be dead. She takes a pen and begins to write a letter to her son, James, now King of Scotland. It is the story of her life . . .
