Wiki: Mary I of Scotland Wiki

Of the eminent, exalted, eclectic, and often eccentric cast of royalty who have claimed sovereignty over England and Scotland, few can match the celebrated status of Mary Queen of Scots. 

The subject of controversy, rumour, scandal and partisanship during her own life, the enigma of Mary Stuart has continued to provide material for near-continual reinterpretation for the past 400 years, and it would be hard to find another monarch who has excited such contrasting imagery and arguments as those which are Mary's enduring legacy.   

From tragic heroine to murdering whore, from victim of circumstance and innocent pawn to a calculating ambitious schemer, from Catholic martyr to Papist threat, Mary Queen of Scots has inspired unparalleled controversy. Her lasting appeal, in terms of both her unrivalled popularity and the historical disputation she continues to arouse shows no sign of diminishing, as any cursory glance at the shelves of historical romance or survey of Scottish tourism demonstrates.

From the essay, Mary as a Literary Figure, among the 5-star collection linked below.  -30-
