Description

Based on manuscripts in the British Library and published documentary collections, this text examines the role played by the Earl of Arran in the collapse of Anglo-Scottish diplomacy during the last years of Henry VIII's reign and the rule of Protector Somerset. In late 1542, Henry pursued a scheme to stop the war and subvert Scottish independence based upon the marriage of his son Edward and the infant Mary Queen of Scots. Despite initially appearing pro-English, Arran frustrated Henry's scheme until the Scots could resist more successfully, through a renewal of the old alliance with France.
