    Una vida tan fascinante como dramática. Una de las reinas que ha dejado mayor huella tanto en Escocia como en todo el Reino Unido. Aún no se sabe a ciencia cierta si las famosas “cartas del cofre”, que fueron el detonante de su ejecución, son realmente atribuibles a ella. Lo que sí queda claro es que tuvo muy mala suerte a la hora de elegir maridos. Lo pagó caro, con 18 años de reclusión en Inglaterra, siempre creyendo que su medio prima Isabel I intercedería a su favor. No fue así. La leyenda e Una vida tan fascinante como dramática. Una de las reinas que ha dejado mayor huella tanto en Escocia como en todo el Reino Unido. Aún no se sabe a ciencia cierta si las famosas “cartas del cofre”, que fueron el detonante de su ejecución, son realmente atribuibles a ella. Lo que sí queda claro es que tuvo muy mala suerte a la hora de elegir maridos. Lo pagó caro, con 18 años de reclusión en Inglaterra, siempre creyendo que su medio prima Isabel I intercedería a su favor. No fue así. La leyenda en torno a cómo fue decapitada la ha encumbrado a los altares de las mártires por la causa. Biografía muy breve, pero suficiente para esclarecer las posibles dudas de cualquier lector que no necesite adentrarse en mayores detalles. La he disfrutado.

    Sir Walter Scott had it right. Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. I have no clue who or what he was talking about, because I've not read him, but I remember quotes, and this was what I kept thinking as I was reading this shorty. The Monarchy, religion, politics in general..psst..I was impreressed with this history lesson. Hourly history books can sometimes seem very long, but this was interesting, and not tiresome at all.

Mary seems to have been a remarkable woman and her ending only seems inevitable because she's from Scotland, and nothing ever ends well for them. Being from the States, I can say that I don't care for royalty. Entitlements tend to annoy me. King, queen, prince, duke, lord, and sir. Please, kiss my behind. Excellent writing on this history. Yep, I'd recommend this book.

    After having read "Queen Elizabeth I" by the same publisher, this book amused me with the Scottish Queen Mary's angle over the course of events that paralleled that of Elizabeth. The best line that opened my eyes was: (Kindle Location 489) ...Every subsequent ruler of Great Britain to this day is descended from Mary Queen of Scots and not Elizabeth, who died the “Virgin Queen.” It's quite an entertainment to read fast in simple-clear format in plain English.

    The First lady of the 16th century I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it gives the facts or lies depending on whom one believes .Personally I believe it didn't matter what religion she was to the lords and other powerful men ,it was because she was female and they couldn't stand it that a beautiful young woman ruled them .if you read more about Mary a lot of the stories made her out to be an adulteress when nearly every man was married and had a mistress ,but that wasn't seen as wrong back then .T The First lady of the 16th century I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it gives the facts or lies depending on whom one believes .Personally I believe it didn't matter what religion she was to the lords and other powerful men ,it was because she was female and they couldn't stand it that a beautiful young woman ruled them .if you read more about Mary a lot of the stories made her out to be an adulteress when nearly every man was married and had a mistress ,but that wasn't seen as wrong back then .The story of Mary cannot be told without Elizabeth ,it reads like a Shakespearean tragedy .

    Mary Queen of Scots Very informative and easy to read. The book doesn’t go into a lot of detail but does give incite into Mary’s life from her birth, life in France, marriages to Darnley & Bothwell & most importantly with Elizabeth I. It’s a good, quick read. 5 stars Mary Queen of Scots Very informative and easy to read.

    Very insightful and would recommend reading it along with Queen Elizabeth I as they were intricately entwined. This book helped me differentiate between Mary Queen of Scots and Mary Tudor who was half sister of Elizabeth - too many Mary's! My biggest insight from the book was that all successors to Elizabeth were from Mary Queen of Scots lineage.

    I read this on the heels of a biography of Queen Elizabeth I and am completely lost because Mary Queen of Scots was vilified in that other book. I don't know what to believe. it was very well written, however. hence the high rating

    The complex life and character comes out vividly in this offering from Hourly History. The author remains unbiased in his approach to unravelling various mysteries that surrounded Mary during her tumultuous tenure as Queen of Scotland and in captivity in England.

    Good quick telling of a tragic monarch! A very quick telling of a famous but tragic Queen Mary of Scotland. A good biography well written but missed a great deal out! Good but incomplete!

    Good starting point I found MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS to be an excellent starting point for my foray into medieval Scottish politics. However, the abundance of typos were occasionally distracting.

    A very happy reader The book is well written and easy to read. It doesn't use special jargon thereby making history not only accessible but also enjoyable. I will be looking at other books in the series.

    Short but concise The book didn’t give me any more that what I already knew but it was good to refresh my knowledge.
