    Had I known the degree of excruciating research that must have stood at the base of this book and the arduous account it produced, I don t think I would have purchased this book.But chance guides ones life, including that delicious part of it our books and our reading I used to live in a place where bookstores ra

    This book is essentially an exploration and whodunnit of the murder of Mary, Queen of Scot s second husband, Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, rather than a biography of Mary herself.Mary was certainly an interesting and tragic figure.The book itself is essentially a very interesting expose, and Weir certainly has researched her

    Alison Weir thoroughly presents and critiques what is known about this complex and murky affair Most of the book is readable, some of it is a page turner, and on some technical parts who was at a meeting legal precedents translation issues it can be a slog Written in 2003, I believe it remains the definitive work on Lord Darnley s m

    Alison Weir surpassed herself penning this tome, the first in my opinion to rival Antonia Fraser s 1969 Mary Queen of Scots Via Mary Stuart runs the continuous line of succession, from Plantagenets Tudors, down to England s current royals.Mary has always polarised debate, first when alive and then, through the centuries, from the grave Regard

    Like a couple of other readers, I could not finish this book I retreated at the half way mark It is without doubt a well researched book, but I had a lot of trouble keeping up with the Scottish nobles, getting confused about the Huntley s, Hamilton s, Maitland s, Melville s, Moray s, and then they were all related by marriage at some point it seemed I think that personally, I might

    I ve been re reading this over the last month.Weir does a good analysis of the whole murder of Darnley, and while she believes Mary to be innocent, she doesn t show the Scots Queen as truly a white sheep The last 100 hunderd pages, however, are a little slow.
