Mary Queen of Scots - "Images of a Queen".

Mary Queen of Scots was born in Linlithgow Palace in 1542. Imprisoned in England in 1568, her turbulent life ended in 1587 with her execution. She had been found guilty of being part of an alleged plot to take the throne of England after having her cousin,  Queen Elizabeth,  assassinated.

     
Our exhibition “Images of a Queen” explores how portraits and drawings of Mary over the years show how the public perception of Mary changes.
