Illustration by Walter Paget (1863-1935) from a history of the Scottish People published in 1893. Info from wiki: James Stewart, 1st Earl of Moray (c. 1531 – 23 January 1570)[1] a member of the House of Stewart as the illegitimate son of King James V, was Regent of Scotland for his half-nephew, the infant King James VI, from 1567 until his assassination in 1570. Moray was assassinated in Linlithgow on 23 January 1570 by James Hamilton of Bothwellhaugh, a supporter of Mary. As Moray was passing in a cavalcade in the main street below, Hamilton fatally wounded him with a carbine shot from a window of his uncle Archbishop Hamilton's house.[25] It was the first recorded assassination by a firearm. John Knox preached at the funeral.[28] Knox's own prohibition of funeral sermons (on the grounds that they glorified the deceased and displayed distinctions between rich and poor) was waived for the occasion
