Did You Know…? Mary, Queen of Scots

  1. Mary, Queen of Scots married Francis, Dauphin of France, with whom she had been engaged to since her infancy. She was fifteen and he was fourteen. However, he died two years later. Mary had married twice since then.  Mary Queen of Scots
  2. Queen Mary loved her first husband, Prince Francis, so dearly that she had written a poem about him during her mourning. The relationship with Francis was probably the only best one she had ever had. Queen Mary went back to her homeland (Scotland) to reign as Queen after her mother passed away.
  3. Mary did not have any heirs with her first husband and so, she had to marry. She wedded her cousin, Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, with whom she had James VI. Henry Stuart were murdered in the royal garden. Barely a few months after this incident, James Hepburn, Lord Bothwell, forced Mary to marry him so that he would be the king of Scotland, whilst young James VI was only a year-old infant.

P.S.: I got the names of the latter two husbands–
