Mary Queen of Scots The Movie

A romantic yet tragic figure, Mary seemed destined for glory, succeeding to the Scottish throne as a baby. A figurehead for English Catholics, she died a lonely figure, exiled from her country and the son she last saw as a baby. Involvement in a series of ill-fated plots resulted in imprisonment for over half her life and execution by her cousin Elizabeth I.
