Tells the story of Scottish Vikings from violent beginnings to the end of Norse power in 1469. This title shows: why the Vikings travelled west-over-sea to Scotland; when and where they settled; why they sometimes buried their chiefs in longships; how the Picts and Scots coped with these invaders; and what legacy the Vikings left behind.
Ranging from the wrath of Macbeth to the kindness of Margaret, from the warrior-like Robert I to the poetic charms of James I, and from the romantic spirit of Mary, Queen of Scots to the trend-setting George IV, this book includes the tales of Kings and Queens of Scotland.
Step into the sixteenth century for a unique glimpse into the dramatic life of Mary, Queen of Scots. Fascinating facts and diagrams are paired with lively illustrations and an exciting story, told from the perspective of Mary's young servant.
