Abstract:

Documents, dated 1560-1570, concerning Mary Queen of Scots, her relationship with Elizabeth, queen of England, and Scotland's relations with England and France.

An accord between France and Scotland is signed by the French king, François II, and his wife, Mary Queen of Scots, and Scottish nobles Ruthven, Stewart, and Maitland. Included are a list of the Scottish lords of the Parliament held in Scotland in August 1560, and a list of political events from 1564-1565 concerning Mary Queen of Scots, with annotations by Lord Burghley, secretary of the Privy Council; four letters, dated July 19-Aug. 22, 1567, to Elizabeth from her envoy Nicholas Throckmorton in Edinburgh; and a letter, dated Jan. 9, 1568, signed by six Scottish nobles, protesting Mary's detention by the English government, and the seizure by the English of the castles at Edinburgh and Stirling. There are also a letter of Sept. 24, 1569 to Elizabeth from the duke of Norfolk, affirming his loyalty to her; and finally, a letter to Lord Burghley from Margaret Lennox, written some time after the death in 1570 of James Stewart, regent of Scotland, in which she expresses her fears for the safety of Mary's son, later James VI.
