Mary Queen of Scots Wearing Black Pearls Biographies Famous People History Legends and Legendary People

Mary Queen of Scots received a beautiful wedding present from her husband:  six strands of "black pearls" (known as the "Hanoverian Pearls") which had previously belonged to the Dauphin's mother (Catherine di Medici).

In this portrait by an unknown painter, based on a prior work by the French artist François Clouet, Mary is wearing a single strand of those pearls.

Today, this portrait is maintained by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
