Robert stewart king of scotland
Uncrowned King of Scots: Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany, 1339-1420 by Stuart McCabeThe subject of this book is one I find very interesting, however it could have used better proofreading.
Page 7 describes Marjory Bruce as Robert the Bruces sister. She wasnt. She was his daughter by his 1st wife, Isabella of Mar, and she later married Walter, High Steward of Scotland, otherwise known as Walter the Steward. On page 20 McCabe writes in June 2nd 1341 which should be on June 2nd 1341. On page 109 it states the king was travelling through Lothian. The reference is to James, Earl of Carrick, the future King of Scots, who is not king at this point. His father is anxious to get him out of Scotland as it was and still is thought that Robert, Duke of Albany, was responsible for his nephew David, Duke of Rothesays death in captivity. The use of present tense verbs when they should be past tense throughout the book interferes with the flow of the narrative. Love the subject.

The wider picture in Scotland at the time is set out in our Historical Timeline. Malcolm IV made the position hereditary, and Walter's son inherited the title and took the surname Stewart. The historical origins of the title lay in the role of the King's food bearer: in practice it meant a very senior adviser and member of the court. The 6th High Steward played an important role at the Battle of Bannockburn and married the King's daughter. Robert was their only child. For a long time it seemed that Robert the Bruce would not have a son.
