Queen of Scots Mary


Scottish royalty, the third child and only daughter of James V of Scotland and his second wife, Marie de Guise Lorraine. Her dad died when she was a week old and she succeeded to the throne as an infant.

She was betrothed to the French Dauphin and sailed for his country in 1548. She had a happy childhood in her new country, raised and educated in France. She was married in 1558 and a year later became the Queen of France.

Her mother died in June 1560 and her husband died in December of the same year. She returned to Scotland on 8/16/1561. Mary Stuart made a second marriage, to her cousin Lord Darnley on 7/19/1565; an absolute disaster of intrigue and mistrust. Darnley murdered her secretary in her presence March 1566. Their son, born on 6/19/1566 would go on to become King James VI. When Darnley died in an explosion on 2/10/1457, she was suspected of its planning and executing. She next married Earl of Bothwel on 5/15/1567 and miscarried twins in July 1567.

A political threat to Queen Elizabeth I, she was captured and charged with treason, and kept prisoner for 19 years. She was executed at the guillotine on 2/08/1587 OS, Fotheringay, England.

Source Notes

Sally Davis quotes a letter written by Queen Mary on her birthday, December 8 OS, given in her biography written by Antonia Fraser.

(Formerly, Martin Harvey quoted the State Papers of Chalmers for December 7 OS and accepted the time given by Junctinius of 1:15 PM LAT as authentic, due to the position of Junctinius at the court, given in Nativitas I. 1:15 LAT translates to 1:12 Local Mean Time.

Kraum gave 1:18 PM as speculative in American Astrology 11/1932.

Wemyss noted that the 8th of December was given by a historian in 1759.

Carter in Astrology Quqrterly 3/1958 gave no date but mentioned an ASC of 16 Taurus.

Taeger's Lexikon quoted Thomas Ring for 3:30 PM.)

The current entry (as of 24 Aug 2012) is composed of the more likely date, and the time by Junctinius. Rodden Rating has been downgraded to C - accuracy in question.
