On screen text at the film's beginning:
Mary Queen of Scots was born a Catholic. As Protestants fight to control Scotland, the infant Mary is sent to Catholic France. At 15, she marries the heir to the French throne.
At 18, Mary is widowed and returns home. Scotland is now dominated by Protestants, and governed by her half-brother.
Elizabeth is England's Protestant Queen. By birth, Mary has a strong claim to England's throne. Her very existence threatens Elizabeth's power.
I was jealous. Your beauty. Your bravery. Your motherhood. You seem to surpass me in every way. But now I see there is no cause for envy. Your gifts... are your downfall.
I wish I could speak these words to you directly, but they exist only in my mind, as both a prayer and a penance. I hope that God will hear them. Believe me when I tell you how it ages me to bear such a burden...
