Robert Stewart (1st Duke of Albany)
c.1340 - 1419

Regent of Scotland. Son of King Robert II (1316-90), and brother of KingRobert III (c.1340-1406) and Alexander Stewart, the Wolf of Badenoch(1343-1405). As Prime Minister, he held significant power even while hisolder brother was on the throne, and was created Duke of Albany in 1398.To maintain his power, Stewart murdered his nephew, the Duke of Rothesay,who was heir to the throne and was appointed Regent on his brother'sdeath (1406). Conveniently, the young King James I (1394-1437) wascaptured by the English in the same year, and unsurprisingly Stewart madeno attempt to secure James' release. Stewart ruled until his own deaththrough a combination of cunning, negotiation and ruthlessness.

He died at Stirling Castle and is buried at Dunfermline Abbey.
