On June 9, 1537, Louis died at Rouen and left her a widow at the age of 21. On August 4, Marie gave birth to her second son, Louis. Later that year, James V, having lost his first bride Madeleine de Valois in July to tuberculosis, was intent on procuring himself another French bride to further the interests of the Franco-Scottish alliance against England. Marie now became the focus of his marriage negotiations. His uncle Henry VIII of England tried to prevent this dangerous union by asking for Marie's hand for himself. Francis I of France accepted James's proposals over Henry's and conveyed his wishes to Marie's father. Marie received the news with shock and alarm. She did not rejoice at the prospect of leaving family and country, especially at a time when she had just lost her son, Louis, aged only four months. Her father was caught in a diplomatic wrangle. He tried to delay matters as much as he could until James, perhaps sensing her reluctance, wrote her a letter in which he appealed to her for advice and support.

From 1554, in succession to James Hamilton, 2nd Earl of Arran, Marie ruled Scotland as Regent for Queen Mary, who had been sent to France some years before to be raised with her husband-to-be, the son of the French king Henry II. Marie always consulted with her two powerful brothers in France - Charles, Cardinal of Lorraine, and Francis, Duke of Guise, both of whom held government positions - so that Scotland and France worked as allies in dealing with other nations.

Marie's regency was threatened, however, by the growing influence of the Scottish Protestants, (namely the Protestant Lords of the Congregation), supported secretly by Elizabeth I of England. The Lords of the Congregation deeply distrusted Marie which led to a breakdown in authority. Mary called on her French family for help, which in the eyes of the Scottish Protestants questioned her loyalties to Scotland (at this time Scotland was worried about being dominated by both England and France). In 1559 the Lords of the Congregation had Marie deposed. When Marie died of dropsy on June 11, 1560 at Edinburgh Castle, her body was taken back to France and interred at the church in the Convent of Saint-Pierre in Reims, where Marie's sister Renée was the abbess.

House of Guise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (659 words)
Claude's daughter, Mary of Guise (1515-1560), married King James V of Scotland and was mother of Mary Queen of Scots.
His nephew, the young Duke of Guise, was proposed by the Catholic League as a candidate for the throne, possibly through a marriage to Philip II of Spain's daughter Isabella, the granddaughter of Henry II of France.
Although Mayenne and other members of the House of Guise had murdered, tortured and wreaked havoc on the lives of many French citizens, for the sake of the country King Henri IV bought peace with him and in January of 1596 a treaty was signed that put an end to the League.
