Reine d'Écosse à la mort de son père, en 1542, alors qu'elle n'a que six jours, et reine de France à dix-­sept ans, après son mariage avec François Il, Marie Stuart est une des figures les plus romanesques de l'histoire. Veuve en 1560, elle rentre en Ecosse et épouse Lord Darnley, avec qui elle ne s'entend bientôt plus. Devenue la maîtresse du comte de Bothwell, cette funeste liaison entraînera sa perte. Lorsque Bothwell assassine Darnley, l'horreur causée dans le pays par ce forfait est si grande que Bothwell est exilé et que Marie Stuart doit se réfugier auprès de sa rivale, Elisabeth Ire, reine d'Angleterre. Celle-­ci la gardera captive vingt ans, jusqu'au jour où, tombant dans le piège d'une conspiration contre la vie d'Élisabeth, la malheureuse Marie, convaincue de tentative de régicide, est condamnée à mort. Parée de mille grâces par les uns, peinte comme une criminelle par les autres, chacun reconnaît cependant en Marie Stuart une victime dont l'énergie dans l'épreuve et la . . .

National Book Critics Circle Award finalist

“A triumph . . . a masterpiece full of fire and tragedy.­” — Amanda Foreman, author of Georgiana

In the first full-­scale biography of Mary Stuart in more than thirty years, John Guy creates an intimate and absorbing portrait of one of history’s greatest women, depicting her world and her place in the sweep of history with stunning immediacy. Bringing together all surviving documents and uncovering a trove of new sources for the first time, Guy dispels the popular image of Mary Queen of Scots as a romantic leading lady — achieving her ends through feminine wiles — and establishes her as the intellectual and political equal of Elizabeth I.

Through Guy’s pioneering research and superbly readable prose, we come to see Mary as a skillful diplomat, maneuvering ingeniously among a dizzying array of factions that sought to control or dethrone her. Queen of Scots is an enthralling, myth-­shattering look at a complex woman and ruler and her . . .

Author:

Mr. Lang does not claim to have said the lastword in the tragedy of Mary Stuart. She and Marie Antoinette will probably continue to furnish "copy" for ages to come. As long as the "copy' is given to us in the manner of this book it will continue to be welcome. Pictures of the dramatis persona; of the Mystery give a brilliant impression of the ethics of the period following the Reformation in Scotland. The examination of much new material and the careful investigation of all documents bearing on the case add historic value to the book. Mr. Lang forms no conclusions; the "Mystery" is not unveiled, but the fascinating Queen stands before us in all the charm of her beauty and misfortune, surrounded by her treacherous and unruly nobles, and on finishing the book we feel that we have sat at the trial by an impartial court of justice, that was never accorded her in her lifetime, and can act as judge and jury for ourselves, resting assured that we have heard all the evidence in the case. . . .

Mary Stuart was condemned for high treason and executed at the age of forty-­four. Held captive for twenty years by England's Elizabeth I-­Mary Queen of Scots, Queen of France and a claimant to the throne of England was embroiled in the power struggles that shook the foundations of Renaissance Europe from the moment of her birth to her death. With all the rigour of a scientist and the passion of an artist, Zweig has skillfully sketched a period full of political turmoil, as well as the fascinating character of Mary Stuart.
