Season 4Edit

Emily Knox was first seen during a function for the ladies of Scotland Court with Queen Mary in attendance. She mistakenly tried on a white belt believing it was a shocker. A few of the ladies secretly mocked her and gossiped about her sex life with her husband John Knox.

Days later she was surprised to receive a gift from James Stuart. It was the white belt she had tried on, with a note. She returned it to him, telling him she could not accept such an expensive gift from him. [1]

Weeks later she again found herself walking with James while The Queen entertained Prince Magnus. The two discussed passages in the Bible before Emily left while Queen Mary talked to her brother. Not long after that, Emily again found herself with James. The two flirted as James told her, some people, and certain things are simply predestined to be together. [2]

John Knox separated from his wife, Emily Knox for her affair with James Stuart.
