Boyet is a gossipy French lord attending on and counseling the Princess of France, quick to note that the young men have fallen for the ladies.
An older man, he enjoys matching wits with the ladies, though either out of lack of ability or out of gallantry he generally allows the lady to win. Other men tend not to like him, as he is much better at becoming friendly with ladies than they are. He joins the lords of Navarre in mocking the pageant of the Nine Worthies. He has a great sense of humor and is delighted to be able to join in all the pranks on the young lords.
