"They Would Never Allow Me to Live": The Secret Writings of Mary Queen of Scots, one of the Talks and Screenings at the Folger, was held in the Elizabethan Theatre Friday, February 13, 2015 at 6:30pm.


Attendees joined the Folger’s Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger as she unraveled the tangled history behind the secret letters that led to the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. Mary had beauty, wit, and charm—and a desire for power that led her into a web of coded messages, romantic would-be rescuers, and the ultimate game of chance.

This talk was presented in association with the Folger exhibition Decoding the Renaissance, November 11 2014 – February 26 2015.
