before she married Darnley.
From the Forman Armorial.
Mary Queen of Scots and Lord Darnley will be receiving visitors at the National Library of Scotland on 29 July.
That date is the 450th anniversary of Mary's ill-starred marriage to Darnley at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Provided by Edinburgh tour company Mercat Tours, the royal characters will help visitors find out about the marriage and about life at the palace in 1565. They may even throw some light on Darnley's murder in 1567.
On display from the Library's collections will be original documents from the time, including a letter signed by Mary and by Darnley as Henry, King Consort.
The free family event runs from 14.00-16.00 in the Boardroom in the George IV Bridge building.
