Sir John Stewart of Balveny, 1st Earl of Atholl
per van de Pas:
     Sir John Stewart was born about 1440, the son of Sir James Stewart, 'the Black Knight of Lorn', by Joan, Queen Dowager of Scotland. About 1457 John was created Earl of Atholl. However, on 18 March 1482 he was given a new charter of this Earldom, to him and the heirs male of his body, with remainder to the Crown. In this charter he is described as 'frater carnalis' of the late King James II.
     About 1460 he married Margaret, Dowager Countess of Douglas, and they became the parents of two daughters. Margaret, who was called 'the Fair Maid of Galloway', was heiress to her brother William, 6th Earl of Douglas. When this marriage took place, the King bestowed on them the lordship of Balveny and other large estates. Margaret died in or before 1475. Before 19 April 1475 he married Eleanor Sinclair, daughter of William Sinclair, Earl of Orkney, and they became the parents of eleven children.
     He took an active part in suppressing the rebellion of John, Earl of Ross, the last 'Lord of The Isles'. In 1484 he was ambassador to England and commanded in the army of King James III against the rebel lords.
     John Stewart, Earl of Atholl, died 15 September 1512 at the Laighwood and was buried in Dunkeld Cathedral. His widow died 21 March 1518 and was buried with him.8

     Scottish Monarch. Called "Fiery Face" because of a red birthmark on his face, he was the son of James I and Joan Beaufort, and was crowned on March 25, 1437 at Holyrood Abbey, breaking the longstanding tradition of rulers crowned at Scone. He was only six when crowned, and Scotland was ruled by two regents, Lord Crichton and Lord Livingstone, both of whom fought for control of the country and the young king. During this regency Scotland was plunged into civil war, lawlessness, and poverty. When he finally came of age, the king reestablished control over the errant nobles and made examples of the troublemakers. He was able to bring order to his kingdom and rule in peace. He moved the capital to Edinburgh, which has not been challenged or changed since. James married Mary of Guelders on July 3, 1449 at Holyrood Abbey. They had six children. James was accidentally killed at Roxburgh Castle when he stood too close to an exploding cannon. He was 30 years old. Bio by: Kristen Conrad

James II Stewart King of Scotland
Per Wikipedia:
     "James II (16 October 1430 – 3 August 1460) was a member of the House of Stewart who reigned as King of Scotland from 1437 until his death.
Life
     "James was born in Holyrood Abbey.[1] He was the son of King James I and Joan Beaufort. By his first birthday his twin and only brother, Alexander, who was also the older twin, had died, thus making James the heir apparent and given the title Duke of Rothesay. On 21 February 1437, James I was assassinated and the six-year-old James immediately succeeded him as James II. He was crowned in Holyrood Abbey by Abbot Patrick on 23 March 1437.[2]
     "In 1449, nineteen-year-old James married fifteen-year-old Mary of Guelders, daughter of the Duke of Gelderland. She bore him seven children, six of whom survived into adulthood. Subsequently, the relations between Flanders and Scotland improved.[3] James's nickname, Fiery Face, referred to a conspicuous vermilion birthmark on his face which appears to have been deemed by contemporaries an outward sign of a fiery temper.[4]
     "James was a politic, and singularly successful king. He was popular with the commoners, with whom, like most of the Stewarts, he socialised often, in times of peace and war. His legislation has a markedly popular character. He does not appear to have inherited his father's taste for literature, which was "inherited" by at least two of his sisters; but the foundation of the University of Glasgow during his reign, by Bishop Turnbull, shows that he encouraged learning; and there are also traces of his endowments to St. Salvator's, the new college of Archbishop Kennedy at St Andrews.[5] He possessed much of his father's restless energy. However, his murder of the Earl of Douglas leaves a stain on his reign.[6]
Early reign
     "James I was assassinated on 21 February 1437. The Queen, although hurt, managed to get to her six-year-old son, who was now king. On 25 March 1437, the six-year-old was formally crowned King of Scots at Holyrood Abbey. The Parliament of Scotland revoked alienations of crown property and prohibited them, without the consent of the Estates, that is, until James II's eighteenth birthday.[7] He lived along with his mother and five of his six sisters (Margaret had left for France, where she had married the future Louis XI of France) at Dunbar Castle until 1439.[8]
     "From 1437 to 1439 the King's first cousin Archibald Douglas, 5th Earl of Douglas, headed the government as lieutenant-general of the realm. After his death, and with a general lack of high-status earls in Scotland due to deaths, forfeiture or youth, political power became shared uneasily among William Crichton, 1st Lord Crichton, Lord Chancellor of Scotland (sometimes in co-operation with the Earl of Avondale), and Sir Alexander Livingston of Callendar, who had possession of the young king as the warden of the stronghold of Stirling Castle. Taking advantage of these events, Livingston placed Queen Joan and her new husband, Sir John Stewart, under "house arrest" at Stirling Castle on 3 August 1439. They were released on 4 September only by making a formal agreement to put James in the custody of the Livingstons, by giving up her dowry for his maintenance, and confessing that Livingston had acted through zeal for the king's safety.[3]
     "In 1440, in the King's name, an invitation is said to have been sent to the young, 16-year-old 6th Earl of Douglas and his younger brother, twelve-year-old David, to visit the king at Edinburgh Castle in November 1440. According to legend, they came, and were entertained at the royal table, where James, still a little boy, was charmed by them. However, they were treacherously hurried to their doom, which took place by beheading in the castle yard of Edinburgh on 24 November, with the 10-year-old king pleading for their lives. Three days later Malcolm Fleming of Cumbernauld, their chief adherent, shared the same fate. The king, being a small child, had nothing to do with this. This infamous incident took the name of "the Black Dinner".
Struggles with the Douglases
     "In 1449 James II reached adulthood, but he had to struggle to gain control of his kingdom. The Douglases, probably with his cooperation, used his coming of age as a way to throw the Livingstons out of the shared government, as the young king took revenge for the arrest of his mother (a means to remove her from political influence) that had taken place in 1439 and the assassination of his young Douglas cousins in which Livingston was complicit. Douglas and Crichton continued to dominate political power, and the king continued to struggle to throw off their rule. Between 1451 and 1455 he struggled to free himself from the power of the Douglases. Attempts to curb the Douglases' power took place in 1451, during the absence of William Douglas, 8th Earl of Douglas from Scotland, and culminated with the murder of Douglas at Stirling Castle on 22 February 1452.
     "The main account of Douglas's murder comes from the Auchinleck Chronicle, a near contemporary but fragmentary source. According to its account, the king accused the Earl (probably with justification) of forging links with John Macdonald, 11th Earl of Ross (also Lord of the Isles), and Alexander Lindsay, 4th Earl of Crawford. This bond, if it existed, created a dangerous axis of power of independently-minded men, forming a major rival to royal authority. When Douglas refused to break the bond with Ross, James broke into a fit of temper and stabbed Douglas 26 times and threw his body out of a window. His court officials (many of whom would rise to great influence in later years, often in former Douglas lands) then joined in the bloodbath, one allegedly striking out the Earl's brain with an axe.
     "This murder did not end the power of the Douglases, but rather created a state of intermittent civil war between 1452 and 1455. The main engagements were at Brodick, on the Isle of Arran; Inverkip in Renfrew; and the Battle of Arkinholm. James attempted to seize Douglas lands, but his opponents repeatedly forced him into humiliating climbdowns, whereby he returned the lands to James Douglas, 9th Earl of Douglas, and a brief and uneasy peace ensued.
     "Military campaigns ended indecisively, and some have argued that James stood in serious danger of being overthrown, or of having to flee the country. But James's patronage of lands, titles and office to allies of the Douglases saw their erstwhile allies begin to change sides, most importantly the Earl of Crawford after the Battle of Brechin, and in May 1455 James struck a decisive blow against the Douglases, and they were finally defeated at the Battle of Arkinholm.
     "In the months that followed, the Parliament of Scotland declared the extensive Douglas lands forfeit and permanently annexed them to the crown, along with many other lands, finances and castles. The Earl fled into a long English exile. James finally had the freedom to govern as he wished, and one can argue that his successors as Kings of Scots never faced such a powerful challenge to their authority again. Along with the forfeiture of the Albany Stewarts in the reign of James I, the destruction of the Black Douglases saw royal power in Scotland take a major step forward.[9]
Energetic rule
     "Between 1455 and 1460 James II proved to be an active and interventionist king. Ambitious plans to take Orkney, Shetland and the Isle of Man nonetheless did not succeed. The king travelled the country and has been argued to have originated the practice of raising money by giving remissions for serious crimes. It has also been argued that some of the unpopular policies of James III originated in the late 1450s.[10]
     "In 1458 an Act of Parliament commanded the king to modify his behaviour, but one cannot say how his reign would have developed had he lived longer.[11]
     "James II is the first Scots monarch for whom a contemporary likeness has survived, in the form of a woodcut showing his birthmark on the face.
Marriage
     "Negotiations for a marriage to Mary of Guelders began in July 1447, when a Burgundian envoy came to Scotland, and were concluded by an embassy under Crichton the chancellor in September 1448. Philip settled sixty thousand crowns on his kinswoman, and her dower of ten thousand was secured on lands in Strathearn, Athole, Methven, and Linlithgow. A tournament took place before James at Stirling, on 25 February 1449, between James, master of Douglas, another James, brother to the Laird of Lochleven, and two knights of Burgundy, one of whom, Jacques de Lalain, was the most celebrated knight-errant of the time. The marriage was celebrated at Holyrood on 3 July 1449. A French chronicler, Mathieu d'Escouchy, gives a graphic account of the ceremony and the feasts which followed. Many Flemings in Mary's suite remained in Scotland, and the relations between Scotland and Flanders, already friendly under James I, consequently became closer.[3]
     "In Scotland the king's marriage led to his emancipation from tutelage, and to the downfall of the Livingstons. In the autumn Sir Alexander and other members of the family were arrested. At a parliament in Edinburgh on 19 January 1450, Alexander Livingston, a son of Sir Alexander, and Robert Livingston of Linlithgow were tried and executed on the Castle Hill. Sir Alexander and his kinsmen were confined in different and distant castles. A single member of the family escaped the general proscription—James, the eldest son of Sir Alexander, who, after arrest and escape to the highlands, was restored in 1454 to the office of chamberlain to which he had been appointed in the summer of 1449.[3]
Death
     "James II enthusiastically promoted modern artillery, which he used with some success against the Black Douglases. His ambitions to increase Scotland's standing saw him besiege Roxburgh Castle in 1460, one of the last Scottish castles still held by the English after the Wars of Independence.
     "For this siege, James took a large number of cannons imported from Flanders. On 3 August, he was standing near one of these cannons, known as "the Lion", when it exploded and killed him. Robert Lindsay of Pitscottie stated in his history of James's reign that "as the King stood near a piece of artillery, his thigh bone was dug in two with a piece of misframed gun that brake in shooting, by which he was stricken to the ground and died hastily."[12]
     "The Scots carried on with the siege, led by George Douglas, 4th Earl of Angus, and the castle fell a few days later. Once the castle was captured James's widow, Mary of Guelders, ordered its destruction.[13] James's son became king as James III and Mary acted as regent until her own death three years later.
Issue
     "James married Mary of Guelders at Holyrood Abbey, Edinburgh, on 3 July 1449. They had seven children:

     ** John Stewart, Lord of Sticks (d. 21 September 1523)
Fictional portrayals
     "James II has been depicted in plays, historical novels and short stories. They include:[14]
** The Captain of the Guard (1862) by James Grant. The novel covers events from 1440 to 1452. Mostly covering the conflict of James II with the Earls of Douglas. Part of the action takes place far from Scotland, at the court of Arnold, Duke of Guelders, father-in-law to the King.[14]
** Two Penniless Princesses (1891) by Charlotte Mary Yonge. James II is a secondary character. The main characters are his sisters Eleanor, Mary, and Joan "Jean". The novel covers their travels to foreign courts, including those of young Henry VI of England and René of Anjou.[14][15]
** The Black Douglas (1899) by Samuel Rutherford Crockett and its sequel Maid Margaret (1905). The two novels cover events from 1439 to 1460, including most of the reign of James II. His conflict with the Earls of Douglas is prominently featured. Including James II stabbing William Douglas, 8th Earl of Douglas to death (1452) and James's own death due to a bursting cannon at the siege of Roxburgh (1460). Among the other historical figures depicted are William Douglas, 6th Earl of Douglas and his brother David (mostly their violent deaths in 1440), Margaret Douglas, Fair Maid of Galloway (protagonist of the second novel), Sir Alexander Livingston of Callendar, William Crichton, 1st Lord Crichton, Charles VII of France and his Dauphin (Louis XI and Agnès Sorel. The events take place primarily in Scotland, secondary in France. There is mention of the early phases of the Wars of the Roses (1455–1485) but English events are only "slightly touched".[14]
** James II: Day of The Innocents (2014) by Rona Munro. A co-production between the National Theatre of Scotland, Edinburgh International Festival and the National Theatre of Great Britain. The James Plays – James I, James II and James III – are a trio of history plays by Rona Munro. Each play stands alone as a vision of a country tussling with its past and future. This play focuses on the early life of James II, the developing relationships with the Douglas family and the eventual death of Lord Douglas.[16]
** Black Douglas by Nigel Tranter, much of which is highly inaccurate historically, covers events up to the killing of the 8th Earl of Douglas, is sympathetic to the Earl and unsympathetic to James II.
** Niccolò Rising by Dorothy Dunnett mentions his intrigues and wars as part of the international milieu of the time, especially as they impact Flanders, the scene of the novel.
** Appears as a background character in the children's fantasy novel In the Keep of Time by Margaret J. Anderson. His nickname and the birthmark which inspired it are both described, and one of the main characters witnesses the Battle of Roxburgh Castle and the explosion of "the Lion" that kills him.

James II Stewart King of Scotland
Per Genealogics:
     "James II, king of Scots, was born on 16 October 1430 at Holyrood, son of James I, king of Scots, and Joan Beaufort. Due to his prominent birthmark, he was known as 'of the fiery face'. As a child he had been spared when his father was murdered. His minority was exploited by the self-interest of the nobles, all trying to control the king and the kingdom.
     "He was able to free himself of these restricting controls by marrying Marie of Egmond, daughter of the Duke of Gelre and niece of the Duke of Burgundy. He tried to control the nobles but the Douglas clan remained difficult until, in 1452, James II summoned the Earl of Douglas to have supper with him at Stirling Castle. He asked the Earl to break off his alliance with the Earl of Crawford; but when this was refused, the King stabbed him with a dagger and the king's aides completed the killing. The Earl of Douglas's brother, together with 600 clansmen, rode to Stirling Castle to avenge the murder, only to find that the King had fled. In 1455, in a battle at Arkinholm, the whole Black Douglas Clan was defeated by the King's army under command of the Earl of Angus, chief of the Red Douglas Clan.
     "About 1457 James II tried to outlaw the game of golf, as too many clansmen were missing archery practice. Aggressively he pursued his nobles as well as the King of Norway and tried to pillage an England already divided by the War of the Roses. He obtained cannons to strengthen his army but was killed at Roxburgh when too near an exploding cannon."4

Marie van Gelre
Per Wikipedia:
     "Mary of Guelders (Dutch: Maria van Gelre; c. 1434 – 1 December 1463) was the queen consort of Scotland by marriage to King James II of Scotland. She served as regent of Scotland from 1460 to 1463.
Biography
Background
     "She was the daughter of Arnold, Duke of Guelders, and Catherine of Cleves. She was a great-niece of Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy.
Burgundian court
     "Philip and his wife Isabella of Portugal at first planned to have Mary betrothed to Charles, Count of Maine, but her father could not pay the dowry.[1] Mary stayed on at the Burgundian court, where Isabella frequently paid for her expenses. Mary attended Isabella's daughter-in-law Catherine of France, while she herself was attended upon by ten people.[2] The duke and duchess then started negotiations for a Scottish marriage. Philip promised to pay her dowry, while Isabella paid for her trousseau. William Crichton came to the Burgundian court to escort her back to Scotland.[3]
Queen of Scotland
     "Mary landed in Scotland in June 1449 and both nobles and the common people came to see her as she made her way to Holyrood Abbey in Edinburgh. Mary married James II, King of Scots, at Holyrood Abbey on 3 July 1449, and was crowned Queen Consort by Abbot Patrick.[4]
     "A sumptuous banquet was given, while the Scottish king gave her several presents. Immediately after the marriage ceremony, she was dressed in purple robes and crowned queen. It had been agreed that any sons they might have would have no right to the duchy of Guelders.
     "Queen Mary was granted several castles and the income from many lands from James, which made her independently wealthy. In May 1454, she was present at the siege of Blackness Castle, and when it resulted in the victory of the king, he gave it to her as a gift. She made several donations to charity, such as when she founded a hospital just outside Edinburgh for the indigent; and to religion, such as when she benefited the Franciscan friars in Scotland.
Regency
     "After her husband's death, Mary acted as regent for their son James III of Scotland until her own death three years later. Mary was drawn into the Wars of the Roses taking place in England at this time. She appointed Bishop James Kennedy as her chief advisor; their companionship was described as well-functioning despite the fact that the bishop favoured an alliance with the Lancastrians, while Mary at first wanted to continue playing off the warring parties in England against each other.[5]
     "While Mary was still mourning the death of King James II, the Lancastrian Queen Margaret of Anjou fled north across the border seeking refuge from the Yorkists. Mary sympathetically aided Margaret and took Edward of Westminster into her household to keep them out of Yorkist hands.
     "Mary's dealings with Margaret were mainly to provide aid to the deposed queen. Mary gave a number of Scottish troops to help Margaret and the Lancastrian cause. Mary and Margaret also organised a betrothal between Margaret's son Edward and Mary's daughter Margaret in 1461. In return for her support, Mary asked for the town of Berwick on the Anglo-Scottish border, which Margaret was willing to give up.
     "Relations between the two women deteriorated, however, with the increasingly friendly alliance between King Edward IV of England and Duke Philip of Burgundy. Any support by Mary for Margaret, Edward's enemy, threatened the alliance that Duke Philip wanted with King Edward IV against the French King Louis XI.
     "Edward IV tried to put a stop to Mary's support of Margaret by proposing marriage to the widowed queen, which Mary rejected. Mary's uncle, Duke Philip, pressured her to call off the betrothal of her daughter and Prince Edward, to Margaret's disappointment. In 1462, she paid the Lancastrian royals to leave Scotland and made peace with Edward IV. She also hinted at the possibility of a marriage between herself and the new English king. Mary, reportedly, had several affairs during her period as regent, notably one with the Lord Hailes.[6]
     "Mary went ahead with James II's plan to build a castle on land at Ravenscraig, designed to withstand the use of artillery, and lived in it while it was under construction until her death.[7]
Trinity College Church
     "Mary founded Trinity College Church ca. 1460 in memory of her husband. The church, located in the area now known as Edinburgh's Old Town, was demolished in 1848 to make way for Waverley station, although it was partially reconstructed on a different site in 1870 under the name Trinity Apse. Mary was buried in the church, and her coffin was moved to Holyrood Abbey in 1848.
Issue
     "James and Mary had seven children together:

     Arnold van Egmond Duke of Geldern, Graaf van Zutphen
Per Genealogics:
     "Arnold was born in 1410, the son of Jan II, Heer van Egmond, and Maria van Arkel. As a thirteen-year-old Arnold inherited the duchy of Gelre from Reinald IV, duke of Gelre and Jülich (the brother of Arnold's maternal grandmother Johanna von Jülich) who had died in 1423 having no legitimate progeny. At first his own father, Jan van Egmond, acted as regent. Emperor Sigismund had confirmed this succession in 1424, but already in 1425 he revoked his confirmation and appointed Duke Adolf II of Jülich and Berg as duke of Gelre. A long war resulted, because Arnold also raised claims to Jülich. On the feast day of St. Hubertus, 3 November 1444, the forces of Gerhard VII, duke of Jülich and Berg, successor to his uncle Adolf II who had died in 1437, defeated Arnold at the battle of Linnich. However at the end of the war the House of Egmond was able to reassert its right to Gelre.
     "On 26 January 1430 Arnold married the ambitious Catharina von Kleef, second of ten children of Adolf I, Herzog von Kleef and Marie de Bourgogne. Arnold and Catharina had five children, of whom his son Adolf and three daughters would have offspring. He also had numerous illegitimate children.
     "Arnold was in continual conflict with his towns, especially Nijmegen, and because he imposed oppressive taxes on the land, a conspiracy formed against him in which his wife Catharina and his son Adolf took part. In the beginning Arnold prevailed, and Adolf had to leave the duchy; however, after he returned he seized his father through treachery in 1465 and held him in close captivity at the castle of Büren. Charles 'the Bold', duke of Burgundy, used the pretext of the widespread disapproval of Adolf's cruelty to intervene; he forced Adolf to release his father, who pawned his duchy of Gelre to Charles for 300,000 golden Rhine guilders in December 1472.
     "Arnold died on 23 February 1473 at Grave, and was buried there."5

Arnold van Egmond Duke of Geldern, Graaf van Zutphen
Per Wikipedia:
     "Arnold of Egmond (14 July 1410 – 23 February 1473) was Duke of Guelders, Count of Zutphen.
     "Arnold was born in Egmond-Binnen, North Holland, the son of John II of Egmond and Maria van Arkel.
     "On 11 July 1423, Arnold, still a boy, succeeded Duke Reinald IV. Arnold was the grandson of Reinald's sister, Johanna. Although the Emperor Sigismund had invested the Duke of Berg with the duchy of Gelders, Arnold retained the confidence of the Estates by enlarging their privileges, and enjoyed the support of Duke Philip of Burgundy. Arnold was betrothed, and afterwards united in marriage to Catherine of Cleves, a niece of Philip of Burgundy. Subsequently, however, Duke Arnold fell out with his ally as to the succession to the see of Utrecht, whereupon Philip joined with the four chief towns of Guelders[1] in the successful attempt of Arnold's son Adolf to substitute his own for his father's authority. Arnold gave up his claim on J?lich only after his defeat in 1444 by Gerhard VII, Duke of Jülich-Berg.[2]
     "When Charles the Bold became Duke of Burgundy in 1467, after rejecting a compromise, Adolph was thrown into prison. Arnold, against the will of the towns and the law of the land, pledged his duchy to Charles for 300,000 Rhenish florins (1471). [2] Upon Arnold's death two years later at Grave, Charles took possession of the duchy, starting a series of wars that would last more than 70 years.
Family and children
     "He was married in Cleves on 26 January 1430 to Catherine of Cleves (1417-1479), daughter of Adolph IV, Duke of Cleves and Marie of Burgundy and great-aunt of Anne of Cleves. Their children were:[3]
** Mary[4] (c. 1431–1463), married 3 July 1449 to James II, King of Scots
** William (born c. 1434), died young
** Margaret (c. 1436–1486, Simmern), married on 16 August 1454 to Frederick I, Count of Palatine-Simmern.
** Adolf (1438–1477)
** Catherine (1439–1496), Regent of Geldern in 1477–1481. She was married secretly in 1464 to Louis de Bourbon, Bishop of Liège.
