James Hepburn, 1st Duke of Orkney 2
     James Hepburn, 1st and last Duke of Orkney was born circa 1535.3 He was the son of Patrick Hepburn, 3rd Earl of Bothwell and Agnes Sinclair.1 He married, firstly, Lady Jean Gordon, daughter of George Gordon, 4th Earl of Huntly and Elizabeth Keith, on 24 February 1565/66.1 He and Lady Jean Gordon were divorced on 3 May 1567 on the grounds of adultery with one of her maids.1 He married, secondly, Mary Stewart, Queen of Scotland, daughter of James V Stewart, King of Scotland and Marie de Lorraine, on 15 May 1567 at Holyrood Abbey, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland, in a forced marriage.3 He died on 14 April 1578 at Dragsholm Castle, Denmark, without legitimate issue.4 He was buried at Faarevejle Church, Dragsholm, Denmark.5
     He succeeded to the title of 5th Lord Hailes [S., 1453] in September 1556.6 He succeeded to the title of 4th Earl Bothwell [S., 1488] in September 1556.1 He sided with the Court against the Congregation, even though he was a Protestant himself.1 On 26 April 1559 he was alleged to have married a Janet Betown, widow of Sir Walter Scott, of Buccleuch, but if this marriage ever took place, it was quickly dissolved. In 1563 he was expelled by the Earl of Moray (and again in 1565).1 He held the office of High Admiral [Scotland] in 1565.7 In 1565 he was receveid into high favour by the Queen of Scotland, after the Earl of Moray's banishment. He was granted the abbeys of Haddington and Melrose.1 He held the office of Warden of the three Marches in 1565.1 On 12 April 1567 he was acquitted of the murder of Darnley, the King Consort, even though he was one of the chief conspirators, as none dared to appear as a witness against him.1 His marriage to an unknown person was annulled on 7 May 1567 on the grounds of consanguinity.5 He was created 1st Marquess of Fife [Scotland] on 12 May 1567.1 He was created 1st Duke of Orkney [Scotland] on 12 May 1567.1 On 29 December 1567 he and all of his honours were forfeited by Act of Parliament.1 He escaped to the north, and then via Orkney and Shetland to Norway.4 Between 1570 and 1578 at Dragsholm Castle, Denmark, he was imprisoned.4
     Skelton describes him as "an unmannerly, unlettered, unscrupulous scamp, whose coarse profligacy was notorious, and whose coarse badinage was unmeet for the ears of modest women. That he had the strength and daring of a Border thief need not be doubted."4 Gibbs states "he appears to have been an exceptionally turbulent, conscienceless, self-seeking ruffian."4
