Tullibardine, William Murray, marquis of

Tullibardine, William Murray, marquis of (1689–1746). One of the most determined Jacobite leaders. Second son to the 1st duke of Atholl, he became heir when his elder brother was killed at Malplaquet. He took part in the '15, fought at Sheriffmuir, was attainted, and fled to France. In 1717 he was created duke of Rannoch by James III, the Old Pretender. He returned to Scotland in 1719 and again escaped. Despite poor health, he embarked with Prince Charles in 1745 and was given the honour of unfurling the banner at Glenfinnan. His brother James, the duke, fled from Blair Atholl, and Murray was able to entertain the prince there. After Culloden he surrendered and was lodged in the Tower, where he died in July 1746. Lord George Murray was his younger brother.

Citation styles

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:

Notes:
  • 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.
