Finally the # 1 pick is


A heroine tailor-made for The CW’s predominantly young audience, Mary is headstrong, gorgeous and riddled with teen angst, and she soon discovers that the royal court is as catty and cutthroat as the social circles of Gossip Girl. When the Queen bee isn’t dancing to a modern-rock soundtrack at glamorous balls with her BFF ladies-in-waiting, she’s caught up in a love triangle with Francis and his roguish illegitimate half-brother, Bash (Torrance Coombs). “My desire was to do a period piece that didn’t feel like your mother’s,” says executive producer Laurie McCarthy. “I felt like there was a way to tell Mary’s story as an epic tale of romance in an incredibly high-stakes world. This was a time when who you loved and who you bedded could cost people their lives.”

In real history: Mary, the only surviving legitimate child of King James V of Scotland, was 6 days old when her father died and she succeeded to the throne. She spent most of her childhood in France while Scotland was ruled by regents, and in 1558, she married the Dauphin of FranceFrancis. He ascended the French throne as King Francis II in 1559, and Mary briefly became queen consort of France, until his death on 5 December 1560.

Common themes: good over evil,  rich vs. poor
