Mary Queen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley
Jonathan Cape, 2003 - Всего страниц: 621
On 10th 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 found, in the garden, the naked corpses of Darnley and his valet.

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
