David Rizzion & Mary Queen of Scots
Murder at Holyrood
by David Tweedie
Hardcover, 222 pages
For over tow hundred years an enormous painting has hung in the Guildhall
at the heart of the City of London. The dark canvas depicts the murder
of David Rizzio, the favourite of Mary Queen of Scots, in gory Gothic detail.
David Tweedie's book is the first modern biography of the victim in the
picture: a rich, heady brew of royalty, murder, plots and revenge set
in Renaissance Edinburgh.
