"Youngest Of Widows" as written by Thomas Buchberger, Mario Hirzinger and Georg Neuhauser....
She found her homeland, she's heir to the throne
She fought all her battles alone

1567, there's a lord lying dead on frozen ground
Who did pull the wires in this plot? Will the murderer
Ever be found?

[Bridge 1:]
Maybe she knows more than she pretends to know
About his passing
Who says a queen does never lie?

[Chorus:]
She found her homeland in chaos and war
The youngest of widows, a heart deeply sore
Raised far away, but heir to the throne
She fought all her battles alone

1587, winter's grey, hatchets lay by scaffold's side
Wears two rosaries, dressed in black she appears,
Face veiled in white

[Bridge 2:]
Guilty for high treason, that's the reason for the execution
Now by the hangman's hand she'll die

[Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus x2]

    Song MeaningThis is about Mary, Queen of Scotts.

    //She found her homeland, she's heir to the throne

    Mary was the daughter of King James V of Scotland. Even though she was born in Scotland, Mary was sent to France when she was 5 and didn't return to Scotland until she began her regency, when she was 19.

    //1567, there's a lord lying dead on frozen ground
    //Who did pull the wires in this plot? Will the murderer
    //Ever be found?
    //Maybe she knows more than she pretends to know
    //About his passing
    //Who says a queen does never lie?


    In 1565, Mary married her cousin Henry Stuart and they had a horrible marriage. In 1567 Henry was found murdered, and Mary and the Earl of Bothwell were suspected of being the culprits, or at least the architects.


    //She found her homeland in chaos and war
    When Mary returned to Scotland after 14 years in France, the country was undergoing civil religious distress, with Catholics fighting against Protestants

    //The youngest of widows, a heart deeply sore
    She married the Dauphine of France when she was 15, but he died after a year. By all accounts, Mary loved her first husband very much and was distraught after his death.

    //She fought all her battles alone
    After Henry Stuart's death, Mary was imprisoned and the throne taken from her. It eventually passed to her sister Elizabeth I. Mary spent the next 20 years creating various plots and schemes to retake the throne, until she was jailed and executed for treason in 1587.
