Scots-Irish is the modern term used to describe the people who settled in the American frontier in the 100 years from about 171.Some in the United States today refer to the Scotch-Irish, but this term now causes offence to many of the Scots-Irish tradition in Britain and America where Scotch is looked upon as an alcoholic spirit.

The Scottish Enlightenment (Scots: Scots Enlichtenment, Scottish Gaelic: Soillseachadh na h-Alba) was the period in 18th and early 19th century Scotland characterised by an outpouring of intellectual and scientific accomplishments. In the eighteenth century, something really spectacularly interesting happened in Scotland. Now this might comes as a surprise because most people don’t think of Scotland as being a spectacularly interesting place. bBut in the eighteenth century, it was, because we have the dawn of a the Scottish eEnlightenment. I like to point out to American audiences that we have yet to have an American eEnlightenment.

Alexander II has the honour of being the only Scottish king to take his invasion force all the way to the south coast of England

Alexander II has the honour of being the only Scottish king to take his invasion force all the way to the south coast of England. Whilst still a teenager, Alexander backed a rebellion of northern English barons against the King of England, John I. Hoping to secure the territories of Northumberland, Alexander and his army invaded England. One of the major events of Alexander's reign was the signing of the Treaty of York with King Henry III of England. As part of the treaty Alexander finally gave up Scottish claims to the territory of Northumberland - claims that dated back several generations.

But the Scottish were aware that all of Francis I’s daughters were either already betrothed for marriage or sickly. James V’s daughter Mary ascended the Scottish throne after her father’s death as Mary I of Scotland with her mother acting as Regent

But the Scottish were aware that all of Francis I’s daughters were either already betrothed for marriage or sickly. So, they began to look for other prospective brides from the summer of 1529. Catherine de' Medici, the Duchess of Urbino, and Mary of Austria, Queen of Hungary, the sister of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, were both in consideration. James V’s daughter Mary ascended the Scottish throne after her father’s death as Mary I of Scotland with her mother acting as Regent.

The position in history of Mary Queen of Scots is a paradoxical one. Her fame as a monarch lies less in her personality or achievements than in her position within the dynastic maneuvers and political-religious upheavals taking place in northwest Europe in the 16th century. Most monarchs spend their early years learning in preparation to rule and then spend the latter part of their lives wielding power and status.
