Mary, Queen of Scots in captivity

David Templeman has supplied an image of the painting of Mary, Queen of Scots in Sheffield Castle by John Calcott Horsley in 1871. It is the only one depicting her in Sheffield Castle. Note how they are all clustered together and the bars on the windows. They had been reduced to 16 in total with only a couple of rooms to be occupied.
