The Hasty Third Marriage

Mary then turned her focus to finding a new husband as the charismatic Queen of Scots. In 1565, she married her cousin, Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley. Their union strengthened the Stuart claim to the English throne. In her view, he was the most attractive man she had ever seen.

Potential Suspect

While the exact circumstances of his death are unknown, what we do know is in February of 1567, Darnley suffered through an illness. On February 10th, however, there was a shocking event that caused many suspicions. A gunpowder explosion destroyed the house Darnley was staying in.
