Summary
Although Mary, Queen of Scots continues to fascinate both historians and the general public alike, the story of her mother, Marie de Guise, is much less well known. A political power in her own right, she was born into the powerful and ambitious Lorraine family, spending her formative years at the dazzling and licentious court of François I. Although briefly courted by Henry VIII, she instead married his nephew, James V of Scotland, in 1538. James' premature death four years later left their 6 day old daughter, Mary, as Queen and presented Marie with the formidable challenge of winning the support of the Scottish people and protecting her daughter's threatened birthright. Marie spent the next 18 years effectively governing Scotland, devoting her considerable intellect, courage and energy to safeguarding her daughter's inheritance by using a deft mixture of cunning, charm, determination and tolerance
