Mary Stuart by Friedrich Schiller (Free Audio Book)
Mary Stuart by Friedrich Schiller – A free audiobook
Narrated by Full Cast
Mary Stuart is a play written by Friedrich Schiller that tells the tragic story of Mary, Queen of Scots during her final days of imprisonment. Mary was locked up by her own cousin, Queen Elizabeth I, due to her potential claim on the throne which threatened Queen Elizabeth I’s own line. This play shows a more stark representation of the politics surrounding the English throne back in the day and how betrayals and executions are a common place in order to maintain hold of the throne.
The story will then revolve around Mary’s thoughts during this time of her incarceration, the attempts that were made to break her out of prison and Elizabeth’s own indecision to follow through with the scheduled execution of her cousin.
Mary Stuart is a tragic tale of greed and ambition in one of English history’s most famous executions. This free audiobook is read by a full cast and perfectly captures the atmosphere of a play that Friedrich Schiller envisioned when he wrote this heartbreaking tale of Mary the Queen of Scots.
