When James IV of Scotland was killed at Flodden in 1513, his son was 17 months old. Albany, a grandson of James II, was heir presumptive. He was summoned to become regent to his young cousin and held office from 1515 until 1524. Bred in France, Albany strove to restore the Franco‐Scottish alliance and by the treaty of Rouen (1517) negotiated marriage for James V to a French princess.
