Legacy, Susan Kay
Rage stripped away the mask of patience and restraint which Mary had cultivated for nearly three years, exposing her raw emotions to the air. And Elizabeth allowed Darnley to escape to Scotland at the precise moment when she judged her cousin to be ready to fall in love with the first handsome candidate who crossed her path.
Within a month, the marriage was celebrated by civil war. James led her outraged Protestant nobility in open rebellion against her and she rode into the field against him, nursing a devastating personal knowledge of the perverted drunkard who was now her King-Consort. The peace which Mary had so skillfully preserved in Scotland since her arrival was shattered beyond repair, while in England Elizabeth smirked as the new Earl of Leicester paid out his thousand gold pieces and seriously began to wonder if she had second-sight.
