Rizzio: life and legacy at Court
Join us to explore the extraordinary story of David Rizzio, secretary to Mary, Queen of Scots.
Many of the most significant events of Mary's short reign took place at the Palace of Holyroodhouse. She married her second husband, Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, in the Palace chapel in 1565, and her Italian secretary, David Rizzio, was murdered by Darnley in her private apartments in March 1566.
Learn more about the man behind the infamous tale and the ways in which his legacy has endured to this day, before exploring for yourself the historic rooms in which the dramatic events took place.
