    • Synopsis
    • Mary Queen of Scots spends her childhood in France and is meant to become also Queen of
      France. However, her ailing husband dies and the young widow returns alone to Scotland, a country
      devastated by war. Elizabeth has just become Queen of England, for Mary she is like a twin sister to
      whom she can open her heart. Mary weds again and gives birth to an heir to the thrown. Her second
      husband, Lord Darnley, proves to be a weakling. When Mary finds the love of her life, the Earl of
      Bothwell, she has Darnley murdered and marries Bothwell. Horrified by this deed and the blind
      passion that motivated it, both the nobles and the people of Scotland spurn her. To avert a bloody
      battle, Mary is compelled to give up her beloved Bothwell. In desperate straits, she turns to Elizabeth
      for help. In response, the Queen of England imprisons her. After 19 years spent in a golden cage,
      Mary finds release at last: Elizabeth sends her to the block.
