Behold the Mary Queen of Scots Trailer That Will Birth a Thousand Memes

Queen Elizabeth I’s lack of heirs hung over her reign like a cloud and contributed to her rivalry with her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots, whose son followed her onto the throne. This trailer, on the other hand, will birth a spider-like number of progeny in the form of memes, crawling all over your timeline.

This trailer makes the upcoming Mary Queen of Scots—due out in December—look incredible, like a feature film version of Game of Thrones without all the tedious men and dragons and much, much better-written women. It’s also triple-A grade prime Oscar bait and Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie are going to be gunning for statues as though they were in fact early-modern monarchs trying to gobble up territory. Until then: enjoy the memes!

I can’t claim to be a historian, or even a legit history buff, just some dame who likes to geek on historical docs. Mary apparently did not speak with a Scottish lilt, but a French accent, as she spent most of her childhood in France. ( also, not a redhead?) And she and Liz also never spoke in person, only by letters. This isn’t the first movie to make those mistakes, which may have been intentional for clarity and for dramatic purposes. I’m looking forward to seeing it anyway, after all I was a huge fan of the Tudors, not the most historically accurate series.
