Mary Stuart was born on 7 or 8 December 1542, at Linlithgow Palace, as the daughter of King James V of Scotland and Marie de Guise. At birth, Mary was proclaimed the heir to the Scottish throne, which she assumed a week later, after her father's death on 15 December. Marie de Guise signed treaties with foreign countries to secure her daughter’s throne, the first of which was that of Greenwich’s, in which it was established that Mary would marry Prince Edward of England, son of Henry VIII. However, Henry wanted to break the Scottish treaties with France, initiating a series of attacks in Scotland. Such attacks put Mary's own safety at risk, which had to be hastily crowned in September 1543 to maintain her legitimate throne. Soon, the treaty was dissolved and Scotland reopened the Auld Alliance with France. The renewal of this treaty provided for Mary to be sent to France of Henry II, where she would be safe, to marry the Dolphin Francis, his son. The marriage took place in 1558, ten years after Mary's arrival in France, and Francis took the throne the following year, after the death of his father Henry. Francis, however, was a weak 16-year-old boy who was always sick, dying from the complications of an otitis in 1560. Mary, only 18, was now the Queen-Dowager of France and was set to return to Scotland. When Mary returned to her country, she came across a place totally different from what she had met and was forced to live with strangers, since her mother had also already died. Scotland was divided between Catholics, Mary's religion, and Protestants. Trying to be tolerant of both religions, Mary, who had little ability to govern, since she was raised to be a Queen Consort rather than a Regnant one, eventually lost support on both sides. Moreover, Mary was seen by Catholics as the true Queen of England, since Elizabeth I, her cousin, was Anglican. In 1565, Mary married her cousin Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, who was also a grandson of Margaret Tudor, as well as Mary. Thus, their son, James, born in 1566, had strong claims to the English throne.
