On 10th February 1567, an explosion devastated the Edinburgh residence of Henry Stewart, Lord Darnley, second husband of Mary Queen of Scots.

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. Читать весь отзыв
