"This book is an attempt to retell, once more after many thousand times, the story of that Queen from her childhood until the beginning of her end. It has no claim to be eight history, nor is it based upon any special knowledge. I have no more about the Queen of Scots and many writers of fiction who have grappled with this rich and perplexing thing during the last two centuries. At the same time, I, like no doubt that for me, have tried to keep as closely as possible to record fact, gleaned from the works of scholars, who have devoted semi-years to the subject, and when possible, from contemporary record."
