Comment

I believe that the image of Janet Beaton on this site (and subsequently copied to many other sites) is of a later woman of the same name as the only other place I have seen this image on the intenet is on the following site: http://themaskedlady.blogspot.ch/2013/02/bothwell-y-las-mujeres.html

This Janet Beaton was born about 30 years after Janet Beaton who married Robert Livingston and doesn't seem to have lead quite a colourful life as the latter Janet who was: "Janet Beaton, Lady of Branxholme and Buccleugh (1519–1569) was an aristocratic Scottish woman. She was a mistress of James Hepburn, Earl of Bothwell. She had a total of five husbands. One of her nieces was Mary Beaton, one of the four ladies-in-waiting of Mary, Queen of Scots, known in history as the four Marys. In her lifetime, she was accused of having been a witch. Janet was immortalised as Sir Walter Scott's Wizard Lady of Branxholm in his celebrated narrative poem "Lay of the Last Minstrel"." http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Person:Janet_Beaton_%281%29
