Public domain

1567: Mary, Queen of Scots, is forced to abdicate her throne and is replaced by her 1-year-old son James VI. She eventually flees to London, seeking the help of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I, but is imprisoned for nearly 19 years before being tried and executed. She is pictured here in a 1583 painting with James, but in reality saw him for the last time when he was 10 months old.
