Quick Reference


King of Scotland (1249–86). He defeated Haakon of Norway at the Battle of Largs (1263) and received the Hebrides by the Treaty of Perth. Despite close ties with England (his father‐in‐law was Henry III), Alexander resisted English claims to the Scottish kingdom. The early death of his children left the succession to his granddaughter Margaret of Norway.
