I am writing a paper on Mary Queen of Scots and was just wondering if anyone here thinks she may have been innocent and not knowingly played a part in the Babbington Plot. I know there is reasonable evidence against her (her secretaries' confessions) but it strikes me as odd that such a devout Catholic woman would swear her innocence on a Catholic Bible and maintain that claim of innocence after her fate was decided. Did she really care about her legacy that much. I just can't bring myself to believe it.
