Historical Context Note


England and Scotland sign the Treaties of Greenwich, in an attempt to secure peace. The second of the two sub-treaties arranges the betrothal of Mary Queen of Scots, currently aged one, to Prince Edward Tudor, aged five. Although the Scottish representative the Earl of Arran agreed to and ratified the treaties, in December they were rejected by the Scottish Parliament, leading to eight years of conflict between the two countries.
