About Elizabeth Gordon (Keith)

From Wiki.....[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Keith,_Countess_of_Huntly

Elizabeth Keith, Countess of Huntly, was a Scottish noblewoman and the wife of George Gordon, 4th Earl of Huntly, Scotland's leading Catholic magnate during the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots. In 1562, Elizabeth encouraged her husband to raise forces against Queen Mary which led to his being outlawed, and after his death, his titles forfeited to the Crown.[1] Elizabeth's son Sir John Gordon was executed for having taken part in his father's rebellion.

She succeeded to the title of Countess of Huntly on 27 March 1530. Her daughter, Lady Jean Gordon, Countess of Bothwell was the first wife of James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell, third husband of Mary, Queen of Scots. -------------------- Elizabeth Keith1 F, #109219
