Uhh. No. She was married when she was 15 (in 1558, IIRC).

I am not sure I understand the point. Yes, many rulers were teenagers
but they had scores of generals and priests and relatives to help
them. The concept "extended family" was capital in a time where wealth
and power were linked by marriage.
Mary Stuart was a queen when she was only a few days old and she was
married when she was 6 years old. But she ha regents and people around
until she was old enough.
