   schema:reviewBody "In this new biography of one of the most intriguing figures of early modern European history, Retha Warnicke offers a fresh interpretation of the life of Mary Stewart (Stuart), popularly known as Mary, Queen of Scots. Mary became Queen of Scotland at six days old, was crowned Queen of France at seventeen on the death of her husband Francis II, and was the cousin and rival of Elizabeth I, who ultimately had her executed for treason. A devout Catholic, who lived during an era of intense religious discord, Mary's turbulent life was characterized by treachery, violence and tragedy. Setting Mary's life within the context of the cultural and intellectual climate of the time and bringing to life the realities of being a female monarch in the sixteenth century, Warnicke also examines Mary's three marriages, her constant ill health and her role in numerous plots and conspiracies. Placing Mary within the context of early modern gender relations, Warnicke reveals the challenges that faced her and the forces that worked to destroy her." ;
