Robert Stewart, an illegitimate son of the future King Robert II of Scotland and of Elizabeth Mure of Rowallan, became legitimated in 1349 upon his parents' marriage.
During the reign of their infirm father as King Robert II (1371 - 1390), the future Duke of Albany and Lord Carrick functioned as regents, with Albany serving as High Chamberlain of Scotland; during this time, he also led several military expeditions and raids into England.
After Carrick nevertheless acceded to the throne as Robert III (1390), this "sickness of the body" caused control of the kingdom to devolve in 1399 to the new king's son and heir apparent, David Stewart, Duke of Rothesay (who held the first dukedom created in the Scottish Peerage).

She was born at Linlithgow Palace, West Lothian, Scotland, on December 8, 1542 to King James V of Scotland and his French wife, Marie de Guise.
During the reign of Robert II of Scotland, the Scottish Crown had been confirmed to be inherited by males in the line of Robert's children - all sons - who were listed in that parliamentary act, because the legitimacy of Robert's children of first marriage were questionable.
The six-day-old Mary became Queen of Scotland, with James Hamilton, 2nd Earl of Arran, the next in line for the throne, acting as regent (until 1554, when he was succeeded by the Queen's mother, who continued as regent until her own death in 1560).

 Appendix 1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Sir Robert, nephew and eventual heir of David II of Scotland, contracted (prior to the time he became heir, and at a time when he had little hopes of inheriting the crown) a liaison, without benefit of marriage, with Elizabeth Mure.
Naturally, when (in 1371) Sir Robert became king, few were bold enough to publicly doubt the legitimacy of those children and their right to inherit the crown.
Since the crown of Scotland, unlike the Earldom of Menteith, could and did descend through the female line, if David Earl of Strathearn is considered the rightful King of Scotland, the kingdom would descend through his daughter to the Grahams, and through the male line of the Grahams to the Allardices.
