After a happy childhood in France, Mary Queen of Scots experienced a personal tragedy in the weeks before Yule 1560. On December 5, Mary's husband, King Francis II of France died.

For her marriage to Henry, Lord Darnley, Mary Queen of Scots had a papal dispensation from Rome. The dispensation was necessary because Mary and Henry were step-first cousins.

Hatfield House was Queen Elizabeth I's favorite residence. She held her first Council of State in the Great Hall there.

It’s where she grew up after her mother’s downfall.

Would it have been successful if Mary, Queen of Scots had married King Henry VIII's son, the future Edward VI?

Henry VIII wanted to push that plan, but Mary's father didn't, that is why their shipped her abroad at the first chance they had. The "Auld alliance" has been very important for Scotland, it was a way to contain England against his obvious attempts to either win, or subjugate, Scotland by iron or marriage. Same they did with Ireland but by iron. Marrying the dauphin to Mary was a way to create a Catholic buffer there, even if most of Mary's subjects were presbyterian.

Also, mind Edward VI was a staunch protestant, a champion of its faith while Mary was of hers. I can't think that bond working but worst things had happened in that island so... who knows really. My main point would be, it was in the cards for Henry but not for Mary's parents.

Yesterday I encounterd a broadcast of "Scotland from above". In it they also showed royal palaces, but also the one were Mary had been prisinor in in Scotland. The whole view was beautiful and interesting.

Denise Mina (wonderful Scottish author) has published a novella called Rizzio, about the few days around the murder of Mary's secretary David Rizzio.  It's a good book with very few anachronisms.  I read it in about an hour.
