24.7.1567: Mary Stuart’s abdication
The Catholic Queen of Scotland, Mary Stuart, abdicated after the Protestant aristocracy rebelled. There was a conflict between the Protestant aristocracy and academics. The queen had married her cousin, but had him murdered so she could be with her protestant lover. At their marriage a few weeks later, the conflict escalated: she was forced to abdicate, but fled to England. Mary Stuart was executed in 1568.
