American series, which shows the life of Mary Stuart in France, from her courtship with Prince Francis, from an adolescent and very sweetened perspective (in the style of the series Sex and the City or Gossip Girl). It consists of 4 seasons and 78 episodes. The historical reconstruction and the script have many licences and errors. It can be a good example for a critical exercise in historical rigour. The best thing about the series is undoubtedly the character of Catherine de Medici. And the worst, the portrayal of the Infante Don Carlos, Philip II’s first-born son.
