A biography of Mary, Queen of Scots, that draws from her letters, those of English spies, and other documents to argue that her reputation as an ineffective leader ruled by her passions is unfounded and that, rather, she was a skilled politician and diplomat and was framed for the murder of her husband, Lord Darnley.
