Regicide: Mary, Queen of Scots - OTHER COOL LINKS

At the time of her first marriage, to the Dauphin of France, Mary was a teenager. This image, maintained at the National Library of Scotland, depicts the alliance between Scotland and France as a result of this marriage. Curators at the NLS tell us more:  

“Shown here is an image of Mary shortly after her marriage in 1558. With her is her husband, Francois. As eldest son of the French King, he took the title of Dauphin (or 'Dolphin') of France. He became king in 1559. The image is taken from the Forman Armorial, a 16th-century manuscript which contains Scottish coats of arms. (NLS reference: Adv.MS.31.4.2)
