Bruce, Marjorie (d. 1316). Eldest daughter of King Robert I, and joint founder of the royal house of Stewart (Stuart). Born before 1297, she was the only child of her father's first wife Isabel, daughter of Donald, earl of Mar. Her short life was blighted by personal misfortune. She was captured and handed over to Edward I in 1306, spent the next eight years as a prisoner of the English, and shortly after her return to Scotland was killed by a fall from her horse. But in 1315 she had been married to Walter Stewart, and her son Robert Stewart became king of Scots as Robert II in 1371, when her stepbrother David II died childless.
