In the live chat last Saturday I mentioned how I'd been lucky enough to hear historian John Guy, author of My Heart is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots, talk about Mary, Queen of Scots, a few years ago on the Anne Boleyn Files Executed Queens Tour and that I'd try and dig my notes out to share with you.
Well, I've done better than that. I suddenly remembered that we had recorded the talk!
It is a wonderful talk and very enlightening, particularly the parts about William Cecil's involvement in Mary's fall. You can read more about this on John's website at http://www.tudors.org/public-lectures/elizabeth-and-mary-queen-of-scots/
