David Rizzio and Lord Darnley The story of the life of Mary Queen of Scots is one marked with tragedy at every turn. Her father, James V of Scotland, died only a few days after she was born. Mary was sent to France when she was barely five years old, betrothed to the young dauphin, whom she married in 1558. But by the age of eighteen, the young queen was a widow.
It was a shock to find that other human beings should even contemplate living in such a dark and dank hole, but when the searchers advanced into the gloomy passageway of the cave, they found the Bean family, some forty-eight of them in all, surrounded by the booty from their robberies – jewellery, watches, clothing and trinkets – although to what purpose all this finery might serve a family who obviously lived like animals, no one could tell. Horrifying evidence of the family’s cannibalism was there for all to see: human parts, hung up to dry or pickled in brine, were all around the cave.
Such was the nerve of the hideous family that some of the government’s own men who had been sent to hunt them down fell into their clutches and disappeared. In the end, it was not through the efforts of the government’s men but as a result of one man’s fortunate escape from the Beans that their appalling secret was revealed. The man was riding home from a local fair with his wife when they were set upon by a number of the Bean family. The man fought off his assailants bravely but had to witness his poor wife being dragged, screaming, to the ground before having her throat cut.
