Function Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni
Meg reacts on a visceral, physical level whenever crossed—she will rush out onto a balcony to soothe the ruffled feathers of a crowd that is about to riot, by uniting them in their common grief, or slap her royal husband full across the face for something he said to offend her. She calls for him to ‘punish those’ who would speak ill of their queen, and turns her allegiances away from England after they betray her. Though she knows she can only remain safe as regent in Scotland as long as she remains unmarried, she marries the first Scotsman who is kind to her, and then laments that she ‘needed love too much’ and that her heart overruled her head. She misjudges his character and is offended and angered later to learn he simply wanted her for her position and the power it affords him. She will ride back and forth into England to gather support, fire cannons at her husband, and demand the Pope provide her an annulment on the grounds of ‘my own insanity.’ She has such a firm loyalty and devotion to her family at first, Meg is caught off guard when her brother refuses to support her decisions or fight to take back her children. Once crossed, she refuses to forgive them and turns her back on England, in favor of being a true ‘Scottish queen.’ She shows flits of intuitive insight, when she warns her husband not to go into battle in England, lest he should die… and she hopes she does not ‘dream again soon’ (avoiding this by not sleeping), for she fears what else the dreams might tell her. Over time, she learns to deny her feelings in favor of more rational decisions (she will not allow another man into her heart or her bed, lest she lose her power this time).

She is always furious about something. When her father agrees to marry her off to the King of Scotland, Meg insults his ambassadors to their faces by calling the Scots a bunch of dirty, unwashed, bearded ingrates. When one of the Scottish lords insults her, she demands that her husband hang, draw, and quarter him to teach him a lesson. She punches King James in the face after being insulted by him. Confronted by conflict elsewhere, she screams, throws tantrums, fires a cannon at her second husband (with much glee in his cowardice), and has a black and white view of everything—if her brother is not ‘for’ her, she will take what she is owed out of his treasury through theft and then turn her back on any alliance he hopes to gain from her continued presence in Scotland. But her 7 wing comes out whenever she is around her children. She becomes loving, playful, funny, and full of good humor. She finds it easy to attach to other people and appeal to them.
