Awesome Advent Day 14: Terrible Trial

Today in 1542 Princess Mary Stuart became Mary, Queen of Scots. Unfortunately she only ruled until 1567 before being locked up by Elizabeth I for 20 years and then executed in 1587. By this point the two cousins really didn’t like each other, and so a trial was held to determine what would happen to Mary. Poor Mary was stuck in the English court under an English Queen and so didn’t stand much chance of the truth!
