In 1854 an inventory of Mary Queen of Scots’ rich collection of jewellery, annotated in her handwriting with bequests to her relatives and courtiers, was discovered in General Register House. This talk will look at the contents of the inventory and what it says about Mary’ style during her personal reign and the personal networks she valued and relied on.
Join Dr Alison Rosie, Registrar of the National Register of Archives for Scotland, as she discusses the inventory and what it says about the Queen’s style and familial and social networks.
