444 years ago yesterday, 15th May 1567, Mary, Queen of Scots (MQOS), married James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell in a Protestant ceremony. Just a year or so before she had produced a son, James, to a chap called Darnley. James went on to be 6th King of Scotland and 1st of England, a Stuart King and the reviser of the Bible. "Catholic" Mary went on to be imprisoned the next month in Loch Leven Castle. There she was forced to abdicate in favour of her 13 month old infant son, miscarried twins, before escaping and fleeing to England where, almost exactly a year after the marriage, she was imprisoned at Carlisle before being found guilty of treason in a court involving "about 40 noblemen", then beheaded.
Yesterday, "orange/protestant" team, Glasgow Rangers, pipped Celtic to the Scottish Premier League title, after a 1-5 win, away against Kilmarnock. "Catholic" Celtic beat Motherwell 4-0 at home, but it was not enough. Kil-mother.
Also yesterday, Lady Gaga appeared at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend. It was held in Carlisle. She arrived on stage via a coffin, and wore a black PVC prosthetic pregnant stomach. She dedicated the jazz track, Orange Colored Sky, to Kate and William. Her show ended with a song called Judas.
From the infant James, came James 2nd and 7th, before his ousting by William of Orange, King Billy.
