David Rizzio was the personal secretary to Mary, Queen of Scots. Queen Mary's second husband Lord Darnley (Henry Stuart) was quite jealous of him. Mary and Rizzio had a close friendship and there was rumors that he got Mary pregnant. Lord Darnley along with supporters asked for Rizzio to be handed over during a dinner while Queen Mary was heavily pregnant. The Queen refused but the men eventually got a hold of Rizzio soon after and stabbed him 56 times with Queen Mary as a witness.
