The death of Mary?s father, which occurred just days after her birth, put her on the throne as an infant. She briefly became queen consort in France before returning to Scotland. Forced to abdicate by Scottish nobles in 1567, Mary sought the protection of England's Queen Elizabeth I, who instead had her arrested. Mary spent the remainder of her life in captivity until her 1587 execution. Mary was the daughter of King James V of Scotland and his second wife, Mary of Guise. Mary?s great-grandfather was Henry VII, making Henry VIII her great uncle. Elizabeth I was Mary's cousin.
