Elizabeth Mure & Robert (II) Stewart

Robert II (1371-1390) was a grandson of Robert the Bruce, being the son of Bruce's eldest daughter Marjorie and her husband Walter Stewart. He had been the main power in Scotland as a young man while King David II, was being held as a prisoner in England. He became King of Scotland at the age of 55 after David II died childless (1371) and became the first of the Stewart Monarchs. He lived with his wife Elizabeth Mure, for the most part, at his favourite home of Dundonald Castle in Ayrshire where he died age 74. Robert and Elizabeth's line would eventually gain the crown of England.
