Easy, this is the traditional noble and royal style- also she is called Queen Of Scots to avoid confusion in the historical files with two (Three if George 5Ths consort is Counted) Queen Maries! There was Mary Tudor, (died l558) Mary II (who co-ruled with King William, died l694) and the unnumbered , but if you want to get technical about it Mary III consort of George V. Tradition! It is also a Noble tradition that when officers of the armed forces are knighted(enobled) The title goes like this, first the service rank, then the nobiliary rank, then the personal name- Okay a famliar one: Captain Sir Thomas Lipton! _ if one wanted to extend this rule somewhat to those Campaigners of the bedroom, well, (and she WA damed a few years back we would have well Madame Secretary of Defence(British spelling) Dame Elizabeth Taylor- If Gabor was enobled it would be (wow) Admiral (of the bed room -six stripes)Dame Zsa Zsa Gabor! Kidding aside. first the service rank, then the nobiliary rank, it does sound a bit funny as all officers are addressed as (Sir!) anyhow. The Church follows a similar custom such as Francis Cardinal Spellman, rather than Having the rank title first, Oh well it"s a tradition. Grammar differs in Latin and English and that may also play a role. H"mm MMe Secretary of Defence DAME Elizabeth Taylor- Eight campaign stripes, dontcha know!

Yes, she is the (Bloody Mary!) of lore. this term has often been taken out of context, and sometimes extended to Mary, Queen of Scots ( in that case her own blood- as she was beheaded) and the phrase is recklessly tossed around -like (Suffering Cats!) in England it is a mild curse-word.

Was Mary Queen of Scots innocent?

Of what? There are many things that could be being asked by simply saying ''Was Mary, Queen of Scots innocent?''. If you are referring to her second husband's murder then, yes, she was innocent. Well ... it is highly debated and the majority of people believe she was the culprit, however, I frankly think otherwise. Was she innocent of being a witch? Yes, because there are no such thing as witches. Was she innocent of having an affair with James Hepburn, Lord Bothwell while she was married to Henry, Lord Darnley? Well ... no, but do not think unkindly of her as many married people cheat. If none of these are what you meant, then you at least got an education on Mary, Queen of Scots. Oh, and I have just noticed that I must sound rather like a fan of Mary, Queen of Scots in the small piece above. Now you ask "Are you a fan of Mary, Queen of Scots?". Yes I am. I am hugely obsessed with her and have many information pages that I wrote about her. I am not into Mary I of England although some people are intent on saying they are the same person. But guess what, they are NOT!

Why would someone dedicate something to queen bloody Mary?

Mary I was the next-to-last Tudor Queen ( Elizabeth ended the Tudor line) and like her half-sister was a daughter of Henry VIII ( different mother, though) She was also the last Catholic Queen of England. (Bloody) Mary only reigned for five years- from l553-l558 so she died young, also, of some form of cancer- in a Church service. Mary I was a devout Roman Catholic- as was Mary, Queen of Scots- tragically executed in l587 and almost- though there were few (survival) scares- the Anastasia type of her day. Both Anastasia and Mary, Queen of Scots, had beautiful Red Hair.

Would Mary queen of Scots agree with burning people at stake like bloody Mary?

No Mary Queen of Scots would not agree with her elder cousin,Mary I of England, about burning people at the stake.One reason is she was not really into killing people and let several people have a jail sentence than execution when everyone else present in the court wanted the execution to take place.The second reason is that Mary I of England was burning so many people because they were Protestant and she was a Catholic.Mary Queen of Scots,when she returned to Scotland after being there since she was a child and becoming the Queen of France,told the people,who had changed religion while she was away,that she had no intension on changing to Protestantism but she would not force everyone else to change to Catholic either.

Did Mary queen of Scots write a note before she died?

I believe you are referring to the so-called Casket Letters- there were two- the name does not refer to a burial vessel- but something akin to a letter box- but of a boxy, coffin-like shape. There were two letters- and they were written, it is believed in French- they may still exist, were not buried with Her Majesty. See the excellent book (Mary Queen of Scots- by Antonia Fraser) this honors the facts and dispells some intriguing myths and legends about the hapless Queen.

Why did elizabeth not want to kill mary?

Assuming you mean Mary, Queen of Scots, and not Mary Tudor (Elizabeth's half-sister), Elizabeth was reluctant to have Mary QS executed largely because, like Elizabeth, she was an anointed queen, and related to Elizabeth. She, Mary, was offered forgiveness and life, but she continued to be a part of several plots to assassinate Elizabeth. Ultimately Elizabeth had no choice and after many years and much vacillation she signed Mary's death warrant.

They never met, but as Mary was the first cousin once removed of Elizabeth, she posed a threat to Elizabeth's right to the English throne.

Was there a movie about Mary queen of Scots?

There have been several, Mary of Scotland, circa l935 with Katharine Hepburn in the title role. Mary, Queen of Scots, based on the Antonia Frazer book and a brief wave of Tudor-times revival circa l969-70"s (maybe set off by a National Geographic block-buster article on Elizabeth I) and arguably others in Foreign Countries . Drawback is pre-destined tragedy angle, no possible outs like She of All The Russias. Of course the same dramatic drawback applied to Marie Antoinette, Heads Up!
