Who are the Scots?

Sir John Sholto Douglas (8th Marquis of Queensberry) (1844 - 1900) Devised the 'Queensberry Rules' for boxing in 1867. Was tried for libelling the Irish playwright Oscar Wilde, who was said to be having a homosexual relationship with Douglas' son, Lord Alfred. This action led to Wilde's disgrace and imprisonment.
