      ‘The Quest for Queen Mary’ Review: Mum’s the Word A biographer’s notes—made public after 50 years—yield a delightful and highly indiscreet account of the sheer craziness of royal life. Mary Queen of Scots was born on 8 December at Linlithgow Palace. She became queen at just six days old after the death of her husband James V, spent her childhood in France and married three husbands (read about Mary’s husbands here), before being forced to abdicate in favour of her son James fled to England and was imprisoned for 19 years on the orders of Elizabeth I, before.

    Author and royalty expert Hugo Vickers brings us an exciting new book from the research of James Pope-Hennessy. The Quest for Queen Mary encapsulates Pope-Hennessy’s extensive research notes and interviews he conducted to write Queen Mary’s official biography. The biography was published in to wide acclaim. Other books include The Young Disraeli and The Letters of Arthur Balfour and Lady Elcho, ed. with Clayre Percy. She published the bestselling Bertie: A Life of Edward VII in , followed by Victoria: Queen, Matriarch, Empress in the Penguin Monarchs Series. She is currently working on a life of King George V and Queen Mary.
