Sixteenth Century Scotland

Wednesday 25 August 2021

Online

Following the death of James V of Scotland in 1542, the country was confronted with constitutional problems of great importance around the care of the infant Mary Queen of Scots and governance during her minority. Paris and Rome negotiated a policy that would ensure the accepted balance of power, with Scotland allied to France.

To implement this, the pope appointed as his legate the partriach of Aquilea, Marco Grimani.

Find out more about Marco Grimani’s, papal legate, fascinating travels and his role in sixteenth century Scotland in our online talk.
