Character Flag - England Noble Male Lord Married King Season 4

Lord Darnley, a nobleman with a blood-claim to the English throne. Much like the late, great Francis, Darnley has a “wildly ambitious mother whose love hinges entirely on his ability to secure a crown,” though his own ambition should not be underestimated. He hopes to become Mary’s second husband, a union which “could take down Elizabeth, giving (the couple) not just one nation, but two.


Breezily confident, charming and warm, he was born with a blood-claim of his own to the English throne and a wildly ambitious mother whose love hinges entirely on his ability to secure a crown.

Early LifeEdit

Season 4Edit

Lord Taylor challenged him to a boxing matching after Mary Stuart announced her engagement to the Englisman. Well aware of his father, Lord Lennox's reputation as a coward for siding with King Henry VIII in the War of the Rough Wooing he did not want a possible traitor on the Scotish Throne.

A second argument came about when Lord Taylor's secretary got sick, believing it was Lord Darnley's poisoning his Scotch. Hours before the fight one of his own men smashed two of Lord Darnley's figures at a pub to compensate.

However, even with two possibly broken fingers (and Mary's help), Lord Darnley won the boxing match and Lord Taylor bent his knee to him. [1]


Historical NotesEdit

  • War of the Rough Wooing Lord Lennox soon married Lady Margaret Douglas, daughter of Margaret Tudor and half-sister of the deceased King James V. When the Parliament of Scotland rejected the Greenwich treaty, Lennox changed sides and supported King Henry VIII of England's military efforts to secure a marriage between in the War of the Rough Wooing. After the defeat of his supporters at the Battle of Glasgow Muir, he fled once more to England.
