The Babington Plot

Mary Queen of Scots was the Catholic monarch during the Scottish Reformation.

During her 18-year imprisonment, Mary endlessly schemed to gain her freedom but was beheaded when the Babington Plot—to murder Elizabeth and place Mary on the throne—was discovered.

Quotation of the Day

?
Men are all right for friends, but as soon as you marry them they turn into cranky old fathers, even the wild ones. They begin to tell you what's sensible and what's foolish, and want you to stick at home all the time. I prefer to be foolish when I feel like it, and be accountable to nobody.

Willa Cather (1873-1947) Ambesonne Batik Duvet Cover Set, Vintage Combined Nested Paisley
