Albany, Murdac Stewart, 2nd duke of
Murdac returned to Scotland in 1416 and succeeded his father as governor in 1420. Less effective than Duke Robert, possibly because of his inability to control his surviving sons, yet a major political figure as heir presumptive to the throne, Murdac neither initiated nor firmly opposed James I's release in 1424. He officiated at James's coronation at Scone (21 May 1424), but was arrested in Parliament the following March, and beheaded with other members of his family at Stirling on 25 May 1425, victim of the political ambitions of James I.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
