Who are the Scots?

Sir John Sholto Douglas
(8th Marquis of Queensberry)
(1844 - 1900)
In 1867 he devised the 'Queensberry Rules' for boxing. He thought that Irish playwright Oscar Wilde was having a homosexual relationship with his son, Lord Alfred. Douglas was tried for libelling Wilde over the matter.
