  David II of Scotland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
David became king of Scotland upon the death of his father on June 7, 1329.
David, who had possibly recognized Edward III as his feudal superior, returned at once to Scotland; but owing to the poverty of the kingdom it was found impossible to raise the ransom.
David was not one of the more successful monarchs in Scottish history, but he has suffered from comparison with his illustrious father, and he was king under difficult objective conditions.
