The murder of Henry Stewart, Lord Darnley (pt 2/3)
In November 1566, at Craigmillar Castle, Mary and her nobles discussed what should be done with her husband, Lord Darnley. Mary could not divorce him, because she was a Catholic. The only other alternative was to have him killed. However, Mary refused to take part in any plan that would affect her honour or her conscience. So in her absence, the nobles signed the Craigmillar Bond, agreeing to murder Darnley.
