"You are my queen and we're your subjects. We're here in service to you, whatever that means, whatever it costs us."
Lady Lola to Queen Mary

Lady Lola Narcisse (née Fleming) was a close friend and lady-in-waiting to Queen Mary. Since arriving at French court, she married Lord Julien, left him due to him deceiving her, and had a son with King Francis out of wedlock. When Francis publicly claimed their child, Lola was presumed the King's mistress, which made every man afraid of her. Except for the man even the King was afraid of: Lord Narcisse. The pair got close and married shortly after, defeating all odds. However, her husband's power-grabbing nature soon resurfaced and drove Lola away from him, all the way to English court. Lola found an unforeseen friend in Queen Elizabeth for a while, until she betrayed Elizabeth on what she thought was an order from her Queen. Lady Lola was thereafter beheaded for treason.

"You are brave, perhaps wise... and definitely loyal."
Queen Elizabeth about Lady Lola

Immediately from the start, Lola was brave. She fought for her loved ones time and again, no matter the cost to herself. Although her loyalties wavered a bit in the beginning, she soon found her footing. Lola had a calm and caring nature about her, but was prone to lash out when upset. She craved love and was scared of being left alone, which often clouded her judgement and made her think with her heart more than her head.

As the series progressed, Lola become more intelligent with how she interacted, especially with how she counseled Elizabeth. She always tried to do the right thing but it didn't always work out.


Early Life

Lola was hand-picked by Marie de Guise to be a playmate, and when older, a Lady-in-waiting to Queen Mary when they were both little girls. Years later, Lola dated a Scottish boy named Colin MacPhail who worked on a farm, Lola lived with her family until she was sent to France in service of Queen Mary once more.

As they're admiring their greeting from the French Court, their own Queen arrives, and she pulls them into a warm hug. Greer then fixes her queen, Mary's hair, before she meets Prince Francis. They exchange greetings and Mary talks on sheepishly, losing her composure. Francis then escorts Mary to his parents for a proper introduction.

Why are they talking?

That evening at Elisabeth and Philip's Wedding, Lola and Greer are talking when Colin walks in. Greer asks her why he is talking to Mary instead of her. Lola, annoyed, states he's simply paying his respects to his Queen as he hands her a glass of wine. Mary soon notices Lola glaring at her and Colin and suggests they all start dancing, and as they do, feathers fall from the ceiling. Later, when the bedding ceremony for Princess Elisabeth and Prince Philip is about to take place, Lola and the girls decide to spy on the event. When they decide they've seen enough, they run off in separate directions. Lola goes to look for Colin, but appears to be unable to find him.

The next morning, the ladies are discussing Colin's capture, when Mary walks in and informs them that Colin attempted to rape her last night. Luckily, he was stopped before he could do so. Lola divulges that Colin told her that someone had put him up to it. Mary then decides to talk to Colin herself. However, after meeting with the King and Queen, she found out Colin was beheaded that morning. Lola blames Mary for what happened. Mary tries to calm her and promises to protect them as they are all still friends, but Lola doesn't seem to appreciate that sentiment.

The girls' conversation is interrupted by a servant who informs Mary that her uncle would like to see her at once.

At a party that evening, King Henry asks Nostradamus to share his wisdom with the crowd and tell the fortunes of Mary and her friends.

Later, Mary and the ladies are talking in Mary's chamber. The ladies are surprised to learn that Mary will wed Francis tomorrow evening, as they believe that it's too soon. However, Mary assures them all that Francis is a good man. The girls then begin to dream up how Mary will look on her wedding day.

The girls soon gather in Mary's chamber to discuss the latest setback: Nostradamus' prophecy. Greer is distrustful of his prophecies. She mentions that Nostradamus stated that she will fall in love with a man with a white scar on his face, which she believes hasn't happened yet, unknown to her that it has.

The calm before the storm

Greer, Lola, and Aylee later pay a visit to Kenna in the infirmary.

When Lola pays off his debt, the housemaster informs her of his cheating and tells her that the price for that is much higher. He insinuates a night with her would clear her brother of what was left over and any hard feelings. Luckily for Lola Francis' appears and decided to made a wager. Francis pays 4 times the debt for one-quarter of the cards. After he loses he tries again, this time the wager has been raised to 16 times the original debt and the housemaster draws a Queen. Francis draws and King and wins.

Ready to forget for a while

Lola and Francis retire to his room where they play cards for the rest of the night and Lola complains about her screw-up brother, but they are all her parents have left. Francis sympathizes with her and hours later they fall asleep beside each other.

The next morning they wake up clothed but in each other's arms. Soon the sexual tension builds and after Lola confirms that Mary will not be upset, and Francis is assured she is not a maiden, they consummate their relationship. By noon they are both downstairs again ready to part ways. However, they are informed that the Queen of France is to be beheaded within the week and Francis is eager to return back to court.


Consummation Lola

Feeling bad...

Francis and Lola had spent the night in a wooden cabin. Francis was already up and dressed, and was coming back to the cabin when Lola was finishing up. Francis’ mind was preoccupied on whether or not his mother was alive or dead. He was scared of what was going to happen and didn't want to be around for Mary, and his brother's wedding. Mother wanted them to go over there lie again, as she did not want Mary to know they had been together. Francis assured her she would not.

Half a day later France it's entered the castle with Lola in front of him as she told their lie. She then requested that Greer and Kenna follow her back to her chambers and help her change out of her clothes.

Later that day, King Henry arrived and told everyone how the English Queen was dead. He then demanded that Mary makes her choose which of his sons to marry.

Consummation - Promo II

The next day while helping Mary get ready for her wedding, she confronted Kenna, asking her where she had been the night before when she went to visit her with hot coco, but a servant said she was with the king. Kenna tried to play it off, but Lola's said it was very late, and she knew what she was up to and it was a mistake. Kenna then informed Lola she knew of the Château she had claimed to stay at and that it had burned down the year before. She didn't know exactly what Lola and Francis had been up to, but she could make a pretty good guess.

"I don't know what happened between you two, but I can guess. So don't council me on mistakes."
Lady Kenna

Not long after that Lola walked with Greer, and Kenna down the aisle for Mary and Francis' Wedding. Once it was over they all retreated to the wedding reception and danced together. However, soon it was time for the consummation ceremony.

While Francis' and Mary were in the middle of their bedding ceremony, Lola was having a hard time watching, knowing she had just been with Francis the night before.

Dirty Laundry
Lola along with Greer and Kenna greet Francis and Mary as they return to court from their two-month long honeymoon. Mary revels in the fact that she has found a suitor for both Greer and Lola. The girls then retreat to Mary's chambers.

Mary has bought them gifts from her voyage, including dresses that they all try on. When Lola claims that hers is too snug, Mary reassures her that she'll have the seamstress work on it. However, when Lola denies eating marzipan, which Mary knows for a fact is Lola's favourite dessert, the girls all notice and worry about her.

Kenna confronts Lola in private about her odd behaviour lately, before correctly guessing that Lola is pregnant. Although Kenna congratulates Lola on securing her place at court by getting pregnant and becoming Francis' mistress, Lola is afraid of about how her family and Mary will react to the news, as well as the possibility of no longer having the freedom she currently enjoys. Lola pressures Kenna into divulging the name of a servant who had an abortion so that Lola can talk to her.

Lola bribes the servant into telling her where she had an abortion done, which is where Lola heads the very next morning. However, Mary bursts into the cabin just as Lola is about to go under the knife. Mary tries to console Lola, but is in need of consoling herself when she realises that the father of Lola's child is her husband.

When they return to the castle, Mary is furious at Lola for her deception. Although Lola is remorseful, she asks Mary to keep her pregnancy a secret while she thinks about her options. Mary reluctantly agrees.

The Darkness
Lola is strolling with Mary as Mary tells her all about the upcoming First Light Banquette. She makes sure to emphasize on Lola finding a suitor, which prompts Lola to reluctantly agree to attend the event.

The Darkness - Promo V

Are you feeling me?

At the banquet, Mary points out Count Nardin to Lola as the suitor she would like her to meet, so Lola walks up to him. Nardin is direct in that he tells her that he needs to marry in order to keep his inheritance. But that doesn't mean they can't be the "amusing companions" he would like them to be. He then gives her a candle, which she ends up lighting.

The next day, Francis goes to Lola and questions her choice of a suitor, as he knows that Lola would prefer a marriage of love over a marriage of convenience, but Lola is set on getting to know the count before passing any judgement on him.

The Darkness 33 Mary Stuart n Lola

Do as I say!

Mary later confronts Lola about having to lie to her husband about her pregnancy. Mary pleads with Lola to tell Francis the truth, warning Lola that she will resent her if Francis finds out from someone else and no longer trusts Mary as a consequense. When Lola learns that Nardin prefers men, she wants to back out of the engagement, but Mary tells her that she must either wed Nardin or face Francis finding out about her pregnancy.

The next day, Lola and Mary make up from their earlier fight, though Mary is still skeptical of Lola and Francis' relationship. Lola reminds Mary that she doesn't like Francis like that and that he is not his father, while Mary encourages her friend to save herself instead of relying on a man to do so.

Lola and Kenna stand by as Queen Mary blesses the engagement of Greer and Lord Julien. The girls then congratulate Greer. Mary pulls Lola aside and informs her that her suitor from Alsace has been delayed for a few weeks. Lola alarms Mary that she will soon begin to show, but she still has a week or two to spare for Mary to find another suitor.

Later that day, Greer cries to her friends about being caught kissing Leith while her friends try to comfort her, but to no avail. Mary tries to tell Greer not to be ashamed of herself, but Greer points out that they have all been disgraceful, except Lola. That it when Lola finally confesses to her night in Paris with Francis.

Liege Lord

Liege Lord 5 Lola n Lord Julien

Marry me!

As they stroll the hall, Lola fills Greer in on her courtship with Lord Julien. Despite the lovely time they've spent together, he has been slow to propose, and Lola is going to be showing any day now. Using Greer's suggestion, Lola decides to give him a push by bringing the topic of marriage up while dancing. As they talk, Julien confesses that he has sworn off having children due to two of his wives dying in childbirth, which startles Lola. However, before she can respond, Julien proposes to her in front of everyone and she has no choice but to say yes.

The following evening, Lola summons Julien and confesses that she is with child, but doesn't reveal the who the father is as she doesn't want him to know. Much to Lola's surprise, Julien comforts her and pledges to marry her regardless, as she is still the most beautiful girl he knows.

No Exit
Preparations for Lola and Julien's Wedding are in full swing: the ballroom is beautifully decorated and Julien gifts Lola a gorgeous sapphire necklace, which are the size of grapes, according to Kenna. The wedding takes place that evening, with Lola crying tears of joy at the ceremony and then dancing the night away.

The next day, Julien and Lola wake up on their first morning as husband and wife, but when Lola tries to bring up their impending marital tour, all Julien seems to be concerned about is acquiring her dowry.

While packing for their honeymoon, Lola accidentally steps on her new necklace and one of the sapphires shatter. She shares her concern about Julien not opening up about his past with Greer, who brushes it aside and simply suggests that she talk it through with him. But Lola only demonstrates her lack of trust in Julien when she postpones him receiving her dowry.

When Lola attempts to wring a confession out of Julien that evening, he assuages her uncertainty but doesn't reveal anything about himself at all.

A grand christening is held for Francis and Lola's son. Estelle the woman who helped Lola give birth, goes to Lola for help because she wants to be freed of her new marriage with Lord Narcisse. Believing Narcisse to be abusive, Lola and Mary sneak Estelle out of the castle, but Estelle later jumps off a cliff to her death. Narcisse tells Lola that the stories of abuse were untrue and that he was overprotective of Estelle because she was suicidal, also telling her about two other marriages that both ended in the deaths of his wives. He says that "Love is a rare jewel I have yet to see."

The Prince of the Blood
Lord Narcisse demands that King Francis sign an edict that will force everyone in France to openly declare their faith. Francis turns to Sebastian for help, confessing the truth that he killed Henry. Lola is tasked by Francis to plant false evidence inside Narcisse's house that could get Narcisse arrested as a traitor. The following day, she claims that she was unable to go through with it. In truth, she hid the evidence behind a painting while Narcisse drew a bath, during which he revealed to Lola that Francis killed King Henry.

"Once Francis learns of our relationship, and asks you to betray my trust, I want you to remember who told you the truth about who they are and what they are capable of."

Finally back at the castle, Lola goes to Francis to tell him that she knows about Narcisse's blackmail and urges him to tell Mary about it. She thinks that Francis is after Narcisse to protect his secret, but he tells her about all the people Narcisse has threatened, including their son. She then admits that she indeed planted the evidence on Narcisse in his estate.

Terror of the Faithful 44 - Lola

"You're just a dangerous man."

Later, Narcisse comes to Lola and reveals that he found the evidence shortly after she left and when soldiers didn't immediately arrive, he thought she'd had a change of heart. She angrily tells him that she had until she learned that he'd threatened her child. He claims that he didn't threaten her baby but that they all have targets on their backs because of what Francis has done. He warns her that one day, she will wish she had his protection.

At the end of the episode, Francis is hurt that he has ruined his marriage and Lola assures him that he just loves his wife and is a good man.

Narcisse goes to see Lola and confides to her that he's shocked at the Protestants' desperation. He also shows regret over having backed the Protestants into a corner through his pressure on the King, prompting them to attack the castle.

"I feel this nation is burning and I am the man who lit the match."
Lord Narcisse

At last, he confesses that he still thinks of her.

Mary summons her ladies into her chamber and divulges that she has been raped. The ladies, including Lola, express their deepest sympathies.

Lady Lola
Lola and conde

Lola and Condé dancing

Lola and Condé are courting each other after both Francis and Mary asked them to. Lord Narcisse comes to Lola and mocks Louis' predictability, suggesting that Lola go to the hot springs with him. Lola ignores his advances, but later, when she sees him kissing Princess Claude, she appears hurt. She laments to Kenna about how she wants someone predictable and dependable. Kenna says nothing, only nods and looks amused. Lola is then approached by Louis, who asks her if she wants to dance. She beams at him and accepts his invitation to dance.

Later, Francis renews his friendship with Lola, whom he has been ignoring for Mary's sake.

She leans in, giggling, and says that she's ready to find out. She and Narcisse share a deep kiss which is broken off when Lola bites his lip too hard, and he tells her that he thinks she's not in her right mind and that he doesn't want to be with her like this, though she is heartbreakingly tempting. He tells the maid with her to watch over Lola and watches them leave, smiling when Lola tells the maid, "He didn't even offer me a bath. And he always offers a bath!"

Tasting Revenge

Tasting Revenge - Promotional Images 3

Why don't you get together with my son.

Queen Catherine continually suggests to Lola that if Mary and Francis are finished, she should become his mistress. However, Lola declines as she only she Francis as a friend. The next day, Lola gives Francis a hard time about disappearing with Narcisse's niece. She thinks he just needs to give Mary more time, but he insists that Mary doesn't want time, Mary wants Condé. Francis says he forbade their union, but Lola advises Francis to let go of Mary and let her heal with Condé. Francis heeds her advice.

Abandoned11 - Greer, Lola n Kenna


On their way to Greer's new estate, Lola listens as Kenna bemoans how Bash already moved on from her. Lola makes Kenna promise not to comment on where Greer lives, no matter how ghastly it may be. However, they are surprised to learn that Greer is a madam, living a rather grand manor house with her working girls. Greer fears her friends' judgement, but instead, they toast to not caring what people think.

"We're all basically fallen women. An unwed mother, a divorcee, eventually, and now a madam. So I say to hell with what people think."
Lady Kenna

While at a tea party with Queen Mary and Kenna, Lola questions Mary's relationship with Condé and tries to nudge her into reconciling with Francis, while Kenna even goes as far as to ask Mary if she believes that she and Condé can still be together, in spite of all odds. Mary dodges the question in a way, simply replying that she will not abandon Condé.

Kenna and Lola are at the doorstep of Greer's brothel, having brought her a damask, when they are approached by one of Greer's courtesans. They ask after Greer and the courtesan goes to fetch her. Kenna spies General Renaude at the back of the room, so she takes the damask and ushers Lola out, taking it as an opportunity to perhaps talk to him.

Abandoned12 - Lola n Narcisse

Outside, Lola runs into Narcisse. He is taken aback at the sight of Lola in front of a whorehouse, but more so amused as he teases her about it. After Lola explains why she was there, Narcisse warns her to be careful.

Because even though she has risen above speculation, she could easily be immersed in it yet again.

"Careful, Lady Lola. Tongues less discreet than my own will wag."
Lord Narcisse

When Lola asks Narcisse why he cares, he admits that he doesn't know. Unfortunately to both of them, they were seen by one of Catherine's spies.

Season 3

Lord Narcisse confronts Lola about avoiding him, and she tells him that she will never change her mind on being with him if her life on the line because of that. Narcisse promises to protect her, but she counters him, asking, "Who will protect me from you?" Narcisse tells her that if she was his, he would protect her with his life and much more. Lola brings up his violent past, but Narcisse points out that he would never hurt her, and she knows that.

Three Queens, Two Tigers - King Francis 11

No Narcisse, please.

Lola discusses Narcisse with Francis, who disapproves of him and tells Lola that he doesn't want their son to grow up around a man like Narcisse. However, Lola points out that their son will grow up around Francis, and when Francis stutters, she asks him if he's planning to send them away. He dodges the question and simply says:

"The topic of Narcisse is finished. I forbid your union, and in doing so I am saving you from the biggest mistake of your life."
King Francis

Narcisse later finds Lola bathing in his chambers. She smiles coyly, saying, "You like me in baths" to which he responds, "I do." He asks her if she has changed her mind about his proposition to let him court her. She tries to avoid the topic, instead, attempting to seduce him. He tells her that he developed a great fondness for her and genuinely cares for her, stating that, "You do not need to seduce a man who already wants you." Lola tells him that she is his for the night, but Narcisse turns her down on the grounds that he does not want her for one night, but for a lifetime.

"I am going to marry you. And I can promise you that it is not a mistake, because we are right for each other. You don't see it, but I do. And I am prepared to wait until you see it, too."
Lord Narcisse

Lola finds a dead rat in her bath. Though Narcisse tries to pass it off as a chance encounter, Lola shows him a piece of paper it had in its mouth, saying, "one rat down, two more to go." Lola believes Catherine was responsible, and turns to Narcisse for protection.

Betrothed - Lord Narcisse 8
