She was born a queen and died a queen, but Mary Stuart’s life was tumultuous, filled with controversy, intrigue, and betrayal. This course will examine Mary’s life by exploring her various roles—those of queen, political rival to Elizabeth I of England, and a woman in a world dominated by powerful men. Was she a conniving villain, as some have portrayed her, or a victim of the sexist times in which she lived?
