On February 10 1567, Lord Darnley, second husband of Mary, Queen of Scots, is found strangled after an explosion occurs at the Kirk o’ Field house in Edinburgh, Scotland. Assassination is suspected. Modern historians like Alison Weir do not disagree. Weir’s perspective takes in the entire scene like a true crime analyst. Her book, Mary Queen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley, breaks down the physically evidence of the time, the motivations, and circumstances, arguing that someone believed Darnley very much had to die.
