If she was born in Lorraine she was not born in France. I know this is picky but Lorraine was de jure independent of France in 1515. I think it is important to have give sense of how fluid borders and national loyalties could be at this time. Mary was Lorrainer, French, Scottish, and for all I know had some other loyalties.

The article needs to offer citations for its many assertions as to Mary's feelings, state of mind, physical resemblance to Madeleine, etc. Unless these issues are resolved, the article will never make B-Class. I have tagged it as C-Class.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 08:50, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
