The execution of Mary Queen of Scots

Mary Queen of Scots
Today is the anniversary of one of my favorite Raucous Royals - Mary Queen of Scots. I REALLY wanted to write a post to commemorate her death but....time slipped away. So I am going to be the lazy poster and dig up some of my favorite Mary Queen of Scots posts:

Mary Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I in extreme doll fighting
Mary Queen of Scots having a bad hair day

and if you are really bored...
Save Mary from the executioner

I know, such a sad and tragic event...seems like she's all I've been reading about today (I'm presently reading Margaret George's: Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles).

oh that's a good one. If you don't get sick of Mary, I also recommend John Guy and Antonia Fraser's books on Mary.

I had a similar thought about writing about the anniversary of Mary's execution, but wasn't as on top of it as you are. I'll simply link to your post next year!

Doesn't Jane Grey come up later this week? What is it about February and beheadings?

I haven't read the one of John Guy, yet- so maybe I'll consider reading it as well. Thanks.
