The treaty of Edinburgh was never ratified by Mary, however, as she refused to relinquish her claim to the English throne that the English requested. Mary was always seen as a considerable threat to Elizabeth.
Many Catholics did not recognize Elizabeth as the true Queen of the realm. They did not recognize the marriage of her mother, Anne Boleyn, to her father, and so believed that she was illegitimate. Illegitimate children were not supposed to become kings or queens. As well as this, Elizabeth was also a Protestant, but Mary a Catholic. For many years Catholics plotted to depose and kill Elizabeth in order to put Mary on her throne. Mary herself did not recognize Elizabeth as the true Queen, and believed that she herself was the rightful Queen of England.
Sometimes she even referred to herself as such. The relationship between Mary and Elizabeth was always very difficult.
As mutual queens and cousins they tried to keep up a pretense of friendship, but in reality they did not like each other very much.
