No !! Mary Queen of Scots & Elizabeth do not have the same father ! Elizabeths 1/2 sister is Mary Tudor, Queen Mary I. Mary Queen of Scots is Mary Stuart, mother of James VI of Scotland, James I of England. She is Elizabeths cousin not her half sister. Mary I is Elizabeths 1/2 sister. Mary I & Mary, Queen of Scots are two (2) different people !

Nope: it's the other way round. Mary I of Scotland (Mary, Queen of Scots) was executed on the order of Elizabeth I in Fotheringhay Castle, Northamptonshire in 1567. Plus, Mary I of Scotland and Elizabeth I of England were not half-sisters. Elizabeth I was first cousin of Mary I's father. You've probably confused Mary I of Scotland with Mary I of England, who was Elizabeth I's half-sister, enemy and predecessor. Mary I of England (Bloody Mary) died a natural death, as did Elizabeth I

Your first cousin's uncle is either your father, one of his brothers or one of your mother's brothers, or is not related to you (an uncle through the spouse of your father's sibling).The uncle's mother is either your grandmother or someone not related to you because she is on the other side of the cousin's family.It does, of course, happen that people marry their 1st cousins or 2nd cousins in which case both of your cousin's grandparents would be related to you.
