The encryption imagined by Mary Stuart uses a correspondence between letters (but also words) and symbols. The complete alphabet is regularly changed but kept secret between her and its correspondents.
The best known of the alphabets is the one used during the Babington plot, led by Sir Anthony Babington, which aimed to kill Queen Elizabeth I so that Mary Queen of Scots could take the throne. An intercepted message used this alphabet (these are the characters that are the most common on the Internet):
Mary Stuart (or Mary I of Scotland) was born December 8, 1542 (and died February 8, 1587) was the Queen of Scotland from 1542 to 1567 and Queen consort of France between 1559 and 1560.
She was convicted of conspiring to assassinate the Queen of England during the Babington plot.
A book is dedicated to her and her code here (link)
