Gavin Douglas
(1474–1522)
Scottish bishop, makar and translator. Although he had an important political career, it is for his poetry that he is now chiefly remembered. His principal pioneering achievement was the Eneados, a full and faithful vernacular translation of the Æneid of Virgil and the first successful example of its kind in the British Isles. Other extant poetry includes his King Hart and the Palice of Honour.
