Mary and Bothwell were married on 15 May at Holyrood according to Protestant rites. Roaming the stony arched corridors, climbing up the spiral staircases, and looking out from the roof tower over Linlithgow Loch give you a sense of the place. Dumbarton Castle has endured being sacked by Vikings, been used as a fortress, and has links to the Scottish Wars of Independence. But the best part of the tour was the James V Tower with the rooms where Darnley and Mary Queen of Scots slept and lived and where the terrible Rizzo murder happened.

It is not known if Mary had any involvement in the murder of her second husband. Not content with his position as king consort, he demanded the Crown Matrimonial, which would have made him a co-sovereign. Mary's enemies forced her off the throne and made her young son king in her place. This was the native home of Anna Throndsen. By the time his queen, Anne of Denmark was crowned at Holyrood Abbey inJames had established a large court and his household numbered six hundred people. Discover the truth for yourself by paying a visit to the many attractions that carry a link to her legacy Linlithgow Palace Not only was Linlithgow Palace the birthplace of Mary but after the death of her father King James V, when she was just six days old, she was subsequently named Queen of Scotland here.

Linlithgow Palace is still a magnificent shell of a building today, but just imagine the splendour it would have radiated back in the 16th century. Since learning the Palace was the scene of the murder of David Rizziopersonal secretary of Queen Mary, I have wanted to see the room where it happened. I was not disappointed and seeing Holyroodhouse was one of the highlights of my trip. Here, Mary made the difficult decision to seek the protection of her cousin, England's Queen Elizabeth I, and travel south. Mary refused his request and the marriage became strained. Not content with his position as king consort, he demanded the Crown Matrimonial, which would have made him a co-sovereign.
