PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Mary Queen of Scots has gone down in British history as the ill-fated Scottish Queen who felt the wrath of the Virgin Queen. But there is so much more to this devastating story and her death. The short story goes that Mary Queen of Scots, who was a cousin to Queen Elizabeth I of England, began plotting to overthrow the Virgin Queen and take her place on the throne. Whether rumours or truth, it's fair to say that when Elizabeth caught wind of this she wasn't very pleased. Back home in Scotland, the Scottish nobles were also not too pleased with her. After marrying a man the nobles disliked, doubled with religious turmoil, she was forced to abdicate and fled to England for safety in 1568.

She remained her prisoner for 18 years. Mary expected Elizabeth to help her regain her Scottish throne but, after discovering apparent proof of plots to assassinate the Queen and usurp her throne, Mary Stuart was put on trial in 1586 and executed. After her beheading at Fotheringhay Castle (which now only a motte remains of) just across the border in Northamptonshire, the ill fated Queen of Scotland's body was transferred to Peterborough Cathedral which was only a short distance from the castle. Mary, however, had requested to be buried in France as she had spent the majority of her early years in the country and favoured it for her happiest memories. But Queen Elizabeth refused her request. As Peterborough Cathedral was the closest cathedral to her death location, she was instead transported there in a final act of disrespect.

Sixteen years after she had been violently executed, her cousin Queen Elizabeth I died without an heir to her throne. With no other Protestants available to take the throne, Mary Queen of Scot's son, James, became King of Scotland and England. Although he had been raised Protestant after his mother's execution and had been forced to renounce love for her, he adored his mother and grieved her horrific death at the hand of his predecessor. In 1612, he decided to show his mother the respect she never received from the Queen of England. Her body was exhumed from Peterborough Cathedral and James I ordered that she be reinterred in Westminster Abbey as fitted her royal status in a chapel opposite the tomb of Elizabeth I. It was a defiant spit on the grave of Elizabeth and a show of respect for the mother he met last when he was only 10 months old.

However, he was ultimately found buried with Henry VII (the father of Henry VIII). Although her son was not buried with her, other descendants of hers including Elizabeth of Bohemia, Prince Rupert of the Rhine and the children of Anne, Queen of Great Britain, were interred in her vault.
