Alexander Stewart, Earl of Mar
Kildrummy Castle (19) | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
With the death of the 9th Earl of Mar in 1374 without heir, the title passed to his sister Margaret, who was married to the 1st Earl of Douglas. Their son James Douglas became both Earl of Douglas and Earl of Mar. He married Isabel Stewart, daughter of King Robert II and is generally considered to have been a splendid chap, at a time when Scotland was often short of splendid chaps, which makes it doubly unfortunate that he was killed in the final stages of his great victory over the English at the Battle of Otterburn in 1388. He had various illegitimate children (one of whom, Eleanor, is an ancestor of the Frasers of Philorth (see previous set of photos)), but no legitimate ones, so the title again passed to a woman - his sister Isabella, who was married to Sir Malcolm Drummond (brother-in-law of King Robert III). The story of what followed next, I have told before. While working on the construction of a new castle at Kindrochit, beside Braemar, Sir Malcolm was set upon by a band of unknown ruffians, and so mishandled that he died shortly afterwards. At this time, Alexander Stewart, the 'Wolf of Badenoch', together with his wild collection of illegitimate sons, ruled northern Scotland, and it is supposed that it was some of those sons and their henchmen that 'roughed up' Sir Malcolm a bit! Although he may not have committed the crime himself, it is probable that the eldest of the Wolf's brood, Alexander Stewart, may have been behind it. What is certain is that two years later in 1404, the aforesaid Alexander Stewart descended upon Mar with a band of catarans, stormed Kildrummy Castle, where Drummond's widow, Isobel, Countess of Mar, was residing, and, forcing her to marry him, established himself as Earl of Mar. From the isolated, not to mention emancipated times from which we view these events now, they seem quite shocking! But the fact is that throughout the medieval period, the forcible marriage of great heiresses and knife-point was almost accepted practice. In the time that it took the great Eleanor of Aquitaine to travel back from Paris, where she had just had her marriage to King Louis annulled, to Aquitaine, where she was to marry King Henry II of England, two attempts were made to waylay and marry her! Quite what happened between Alexander Stewart and Countess Isabella, we will never know. Alexander is generally regarded as the guilty party, purely because he was the son of the Wolf of Badenoch! It is however very possible that both Alexander and Isabella arranged the whole thing, knowing that Royal approval would never be given for the heiress of so important an earldom as that of Mar, to marry an illegitimate Highland cataran (even if he was a king's grandson), if they followed the proper process. Either way, the marriage resulted in the metamorphosis of a "rude and ferocious freebooter" into an earl who was to become "one of the ablest captains and most experienced statesmen" of his time. Countess Isabel was already too old to bear children when they married, so they had no heirs of their own. She died in 1408 and when he died in 1435, the earldom of Mar was annexed to the Crown, despite the protestations of Sir Robert Erskine, Countess Isabel's nearest heir. The Erskines had to wait 130 years before what was rightfully theirs was finally granted to them by Mary Queen of Scots. The history of Kildrummy goes fairly quiet after its 1404 "capture" by Alexander Stewart - which is not to say that it remained uneventful. There were sieges of the castle in 1442 and again in 1530, after which it was burned. In the interim, Kildrummy had been granted in 1508 by the Crown to Alexander, 1st Lord Elphinstone. He was killed 5 years later at Flodden, but his descendants were responsible for building the tower-house along the north curtain wall of Kildrummy, the ruins of which now almost blend in with the rest of the castle's ruins. In 1650 it opened its gates to the forces of Oliver Cromwell, rather than face the fate that befell most of the other castles that resisted! In 1689/90, it was burned again, this time by the Highlanders of Viscount Dundee's army - on their way to tactical victory but strategic defeat at the Battle of Killiecrankie.

The Battle of Harlaw was fought in the lee of the Mither Tap o’ Bennachie, a prominent Aberdeenshire landmark that shoulders into the surrounding countryside and presents a formidable barrier to energetic clamberers.
