She returned when Jane Seymour became Queen, When her brother, Edward VI died and Lady Jane Grey was declared his successor, Mary's followers persuaded the privy Council to recast their suport and proclaim her the rightful heir.
Jane was taken to the tower and then Mary became queen. After a Protestant uprising Mary judged that Jane who was still alive was to beheaded and done so.
Mary resored the Catholic faith and married Philip, the heir to the spanish crown but the parliment refused to accept him as English, the marrage was unsuccessful.

Mary Queen of Scots. 8 December 1542 – 8 February 1587. Mary I of Scotland or Mary Stuart, was queen from 14 December 1542 to 24 July 1567 and queen consort of France from 10 July 1559 to 5 December 1560.
Mary was the only surviving legitimate child of King James V of Scotland. She was a week old when her father died. She was crowned 9 months later. In 1558, she married Francis, Dauphin of France. He ascended the French throne as Francis II in 1559, and Mary became Queen consort of France until she was widowed on 5 December 1560. Mary then returned to Scotland, arriving in Leith on 19 August 1561. Four years later, she married her first cousin, Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley.
In the 16th century, Mary gave Darnley a Ring made of gold, engraved with the initials 'MH' and true lover's knot. The gold ring was thought to be the betrothal ring of Mary Queen of Scots and Lord Darnley, because the engraving inside shows a crowned shield of arms, a lion rampant and 'Henri L Darnley 1565.
Their union was unhappy and in February 1567, there was a huge explosion at their house, and Darnley was found dead, apparently strangled, in the garden.

Following an uprising against the couple, Mary was sent to prison in Loch Leven Castle on 15th of June, then forced to abdicate in favour of her 1year old son, James VI. After an unsuccessful attempt to regain the throne, Mary fled to England seeking the protection of her first cousin, Queen Elizabeth I of England,
