    “Since Mary, Queen of Scotland, was a child the English have wanted her country and her crown. She is sent to France to wed its next king, to save herself and her people - a bond that should protect her, but there are forces that conspire, forces of darkness, forces of the heart. Long may she reign.


    The Time Period is 1557, Kings and Queens rule over their countries with iron fists. England battles for rule over Scotland. When all hope seems to be lost for Scotland a sudden glimmer of hope appears in the form of a tiny infant, a princess, named Mary. Mary, the rightful ruler of Scotland is the perfect match for the newborn son of France, an alliance that could save her people from falling into the clutches of England. At the age of 6 Mary is sent to live in the court of France, but after many attempts to kill the royal child she and her ladies in waiting are sent to the neutral country of Germany, where the young girls are kept safe in the countryside until the time arrives for Mary and her friends to return to the courts of France and take her place as the wife of France’s next king. Will she be able to reign?

    Love, Hope, Devastation, War, Royalty. Status is everything in the courts of France and in a time where marriage is a key to safety will anyone be safe? England has been lusting after Scotland for sometime and fears the marriage between France and Scotland will ruin any chance they have at taking the country for themselves. So they send in their future king and his men to the courts of france to make sure the marriage does not happen. Will they be successful?

    Full Name: Beatrice Abery

    Country: Scotland
    Position: Lady-in-Waiting
    ~~~
    Appearance: Here
    Hobbies: Embroidery, reading
    Personality: Beatrice is a shy girl, often not one to take the initiative. She doesn't talk much, and prefers to listen to other. Surprisingly, Bea is a good source for gossip and has a good sense of humor.
    History: Bea lived a quiet childhood in a noble house in Scotland, preparing herself for marriage. She was the third daughter, with two brothers and was often picked on by them-all in good taste, however. Becoming a lady-in-waiting was mostly done by her mother, and she was surprised at the unexpected role.

    Full Name: Fiona Hambledon
    Nickname: Finny
    Age: 14
    Country: Scotland
    Position: Lady in waiting
    ~~~
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    (Not really an era appropriate picture, but I just needed her face. >.<)
    Hobbies: Reading, reciting and writing poetry, and climbing (when she's alone of course!)
    Personality: Fiona is a loud and boisterous girl who's only ever quiet when she's in front of those she needs to show great respect or impress. When she's alone with her fellow ladies in waiting, she holds nothing back and speaks her mind. She often acts like a fool to make her friends laugh. She's also one to make fun of someone as soon as they've turned their back.
    History: As the only child of a Lieutenant, Fiona has always had to deal with the fact that she was a disappointment and not at all what her father wanted. He wanted strong boys who could serve the royal family and carry on the family name. Instead he got Fiona, who always tried her hardest to gain his approval, but he never took notice until it was revealed that the Queen Mary, required a lady in waiting. And even though, Fiona didn't want to leave her family, she did so anyway, to gain the approval and love of her father.
    ~~~
    Other: She can't dance to save her life.
