About the magazine

Discover the real story of Mary Queen of Scots with this limited edition souvenir magazine which explores the history behind the woman who became queen at six days old, was widowed at eighteen and went on to become one of Scotland’s most beguiling yet controversial monarchs.

Written by an expert team with a passion for the past, Mary Queen of Scots not only explores the story behind the new Mary Queen of Scots movie from Universal Pictures but also looks at the real-life Mary and the challenging and dangerous situations with which she was faced during her reign and subsequent nineteen-year imprisonment.
