Sophia, Queen of Scots (Sophia of England) (27 July 1568 - 31 December 1607) was Queen of Scots as the wife of James VI. She was the fifth daughter of Isabella of Cleves and Edward VI. Her black hair and dark eyes almost caused controversy due to both of her parents being of fair complexion. She was the paternal grandmother of Isabella of Scots, the last Stuart monarch.
Sophia was born as the fifth daughter of Isabella of Cleves and Edward VI of England at Whitehall Palace. When she was seven, she was given her own establishment at Somerset House under the guidance of of her governess, Lady Margaret Boleyn. Records for her household show that Lady Margaret Howard, Lady Sancha Neville, Lady Constance Veldon, Lady Mary Boleyn, and Lady Elizabeth Dudley were her companions beginning in 1576 until she left for Scotland in 1587.
