  • Notes 
    • Daughter of King Robert the Bruce and Isabel of Mar.

      At the age of twelve, Marjorie, along with her stepmother Elizabeth,
      Mary (Bruce) Campbell, Christian Bruce and the Countess of Buchan were
      captured by the English in 1306. Marjorie was put into a cage of wood
      and housed in the Tower of London. Orders were given that she was not
      to converse with anyone but the constable of the Tower. Later, the
      sentence was revoked by King Edward I and Marjorie was sent to a
      nunnery at Walton. She was released along with Christian Bruce and her
      stepmother the Queen in 1314.

      On 2 March 1316, Princess Marjorie, who was pregnant and expecting
      birth in the spring, was thrown from her horse and killed. Conscious
      of the royal succession, the surgeons cut open her abdomen and
      delivered a son from her dead body. That baby, crippled for life from
      the injury of his birth, would, fifty-four years later, become Robert
      II, King of Scots, the first of the royal line of Stewarts.
