Celebrated Crimes, Volume 3 - "Mary Stuart" by Alexandre Dumas
Summary - The prolific Alexandre Dumas, père, first published his famous eight-volume crime series in Paris in 1845. It contained 18 stories which, as the author notes in the introduction, had “the added value of giving the modern reader a clear picture of the state of semi-lawlessness which existed in Europe, during the middle ages.”
In Volume 3, Dumas relates the tragic fate of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, following the death of her husband, Lord Darnley. Queen Elizabeth of England, threatened by her Catholic cousin’s legitimate claim to the English throne, went to great lengths to ensure her cousin was never able to unseat her.
