Robert married Margaret GRAHAM 10th Countess of Menteith, daughter of Sir John DE GRAHAM Earl of Menteith, jure uxoris and Mary STEWART 9th Countess of Menteith, 9 September 1361(papal dispensation).1 2 (Margaret GRAHAM 10th Countess of Menteith was born by 1334 2 4 and died by 1380 2.)


  Marriage Notes:

"Robert Stewart, third son of King Robert II. by Elizabeth Mure, his first wife, born in 1339, married first, by dispensation dated 9 September 1361, as her fourth husband,Margaret, Countess of Menteith, by which marriage he became by courtesy Earl of Menteith. He entered into an indenture with Isobel, Countess of Fife, relict of his elder brother Walter, dated at Perth, 30 March 1371, wherein she acknowledges him to be her lawful heir-apparent, and that, when the Earldom of Fife is recovered and the Countess has got possession of it, she will resign it into the King's hands for infeftment in his favour. In consequence of this he succeeded to that Earldom, and was styled Earl of Fife and Menteith." (page 146)

"He married, first, Margaret, Countess of Menteith, only daughter of Sir John Graham and Mary, Countess of Menteith, widow of Sir John Moray, Lord of Bothwell, Thomas, thirteenth Earl of Mar, and Sir John Drummond of Concraig. By her, who died about 1380, he had issue" (page 148)

from Scots Peerage (vol 1)




"He (John Drummond) was certainly deceased before 9 September 1361. when a fifth dispensation was issued for the marriage of Margaret, Countess of Menteith, with Robert Stewart, third son of Robert, Earl of Strathearn (afterwards King Robert II.), the intending spouses being themselves the petitioners. The marriage seems to have taken place soon after the date of the dispensation, and the Countess appears again only twice on record, first, in the indenture between her husband and Isabella, Countess of Fife, as to the earldom of Fife, which carried out the entail made by Isabella's father to Alan, Earl of Menteith, grandfather of the Countess Margaret. The indenture was dated 30 March 1371 , and thereafter she and her husband held the two earldoms of Fife and Menteith. The second and latest known reference to Countess Margaret is in the marriage-contract, on 21 July 1372, of her daughter Janet to David de Loen."

Robert next married Muriella KEITH, daughter of Sir William DE KEITH Great Marischal of Scotland and Margaret FRASER heiress of Touchfraser, 4 May 1380(papal dispensation).2 (Muriella KEITH was born about 1355 and died before Whitsun 1449 1.)


  Marriage Notes:

"The Regent married, secondly, Muriella, eldest daughter of Sir William de Keith, Great Marischal of Scotland, who survived him and died shortly before Whitsunday 1449. By her he had issue"

from Scots Peerage (vol 1)




"When the Countess (of Menteith) died is not exactly known, but she was deceased before 4 May 1380, when a dispensation was issued for the Earl of Fife's marriage with Muriella Keith."
