- —Lord Taylor
Lord Taylor is a Scottish Lord with many men at his side due to his courage and honor. He is a soldier and competitive boxer, having beat James Stuart three separate times.
Lord Taylor challenged Lord Darnley to a boxing matching after Mary Stuart announced her engagement to the Englisman. Well aware of his father, Matthew 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. 
- Matthew Lennox was Lord Darnley's father. He was second cousins once removed to King James V, and (at best) third in line of succession for the Scottish Crown. He spent most of his youth in exile in England, but returned to Scotland to assert his claims to the line of succession when King James V died in 1542.
- War of the Rough Wooing Matthew Lennox married Lady Margaret Douglas, daughter of Margaret Tudor and half-sister of 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. After the defeat of his supporters, he fled once more to England.
