The Return of Mary Queen of Scots

Here is a nineteenth century painting by James Drummond portraying the return of the eighteen year old Queen of Scots to her native land after many years. Notice how she clutches her rosary, looking as bewildered as if she had just landed on another planet. I wish I could reach back in time and say, "Go back to France, Mary!" But knowing Mary she would not listen. (Via Louis XX.)

Incidentally, we have just started a new thread dedicated to "Mary Suart in Art" for anyone who might be interested. Share
