On the night of 10 February 1567 an explosion devastated the Edinburgh residence of Henry Stewart, Lord Darnley, second husband of Mary, Queen of Scots. The noise was heard as far away as Holyrood Palace, where Queen Mary was attending a wedding masque. Those arriving at the scene of devastation found, in the garden, the naked corpses of Darnley and his valet. Neither had died in the explosion, but both bodies bore marks of strangulation. It was clear that they had been murdered and the house destroyed in an attempt to obliterate the evidence. Darnley was not a popular king-consort, but he was regarded by many as having a valid claim to the English throne. For this reason Elizabeth I had opposed his family's longstanding wish to marry him to Mary Stuart, who herself claimed to be the rightful queen of England. Alison Weir's investigation of Darnley's murder is set against one of the most dramatic periods in British history. Her conclusions will shed a brilliant new light on the actions and motives of the conspirators and, in particular, the extent of Mary's own involvement.… (més)

Very informative book about Mary Queen of Scots ( )

Mary, Queen of Scots was suspected of murdering her second husband, Lord Darnley. Darnley died in an explosion, but it was definitely murder. Many people at the time thought she’d done it, as well as many historians since. Weir looks at many sources to try to sort out whether or not Mary was, indeed, involved. This does pretty much amount to a biography, with a strong focus on events as relating to Darnley.

This is a long book! With lots of detail. That being said, I went back and forth between being really interested and falling back a bit with some of the detail. Now, Weir really was looking at a lot of information to try to sort out who was involved. Boy, talk about “fake news” of the time! And sham trials with a political bent (i.e. predetermined outcome)... Overall, I’m rating it good, but it does take a while to read. ( )

I am a Tudor history buff, so I really enjoyed this. I don't think Alison Weir has ever written a bad book. Poor Mary, though. Life was not kind to her. ( )

This was a mammoth undertaking. Alison Weir explores the evidence that comes from one of the great mysteries of the Tudor period: Mary, Queen of Scots, and the murder of Lord Darnley. The book can be mind numbing in its detail. Weir certainly did her homework and makes no apology for the detail or the length of the book. The reader can get bogged down with it all, but many parts are of interest. In the end, Weir makes the conclusion that Mary did not murder her husband, though it was certainly in her interest to do so.

A die hard fan of Mary, Queen of Scots, would enjoy this. ( )

Few souls were abroad in Edinburgh after midnight on 9 February 1567. (prologue)
The murder of Lord Darnley is the most celebrated mystery in Scottish history; it has been endlessly recounted by numerous historians and writers, and the question that has most exercised all of them is this: was Mary, Queen of Scots the instigator of, or a party to, the murder of her husband? (introduction)
To everyone's dismay, the baby born to James V of Scotland and his second wife, Marie de Guise, on 8 December 1542 at Linlithgow Palace was a girl.
