Marie of Guise was whisked from a quiet childhood in a convent to an arranged marriage with a French Prince du Sang at the instigation of Francois I. Widowed within three years, she was obliged to marry again, this time to the widowed James V of Scotland (her other choice being Henry VIII - whom she hastily refused!) Carried off to Scotland, leaving her three-year old son behind, she quickly became an important patron of arts and culture at the Scottish court. Widowed again, 31 year old Marie was left to fight a valiant battle to protect not only the inheritance, but also the life, of her baby daughter, Mary, Queen of Scots. For eighteen years, Marie strove to keep Scotland safe for her daughter, negotiating the dangerous currents of the Reformation and the struggle between France and England to control Scotland.
