Princess Mary Stuart became Queen of Scotland today

Princess Mary Stuart became Mary, Queen of Scotland today in 1542. She was the daughter of King James V of Scotland, who died when she was just six days old, and his second wife, Mary of Guise. Being only an infant, a regent - James Hamilton, the Earl of Arran – was chosen in her stead.
