About the Author

Andrew Lang (1844-1912) was a Scottish poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known for his work as a collector of folk and fairy tales. A prolific author, Lang published more than 100 books during his career, including 'The Mystery of Mary Stuart' (1901), which showcases his historical scholarship. Lang's academic interests were varied, but he maintained a particular fascination with history, mythology, and the study of primitive society. He graduated from the University of St Andrews and Balliol College, Oxford, where his academic performance was marked with distinctions. Lang's literary style often intertwined the romantic with the rational. He was an early supporter of the anthropological concept of psychic unity, and his writings reflect a comprehensive synthesis of folklore, myth, and religion, perceived through the lens of his own interpretations. As a historian, Lang brought a critical eye to the subject of 'The Mystery of Mary Stuart,' pulling apart various threads of evidence to offer a fresh perspective on the historical controversies surrounding Mary, Queen of Scots. His contribution to literature also includes the popular 'Coloured' Fairy Books series, which has enchanted children and adults alike for over a century with its rich compendium of tales from around the world.
