(c. 1372–1424).

Son and heir of Archibald ‘the Grim’, 3rd earl of Douglas [S], and later nicknamed ‘the Tyneman’ (the Loser), perhaps because of his presence in so many battles on the losing side. Earl Archibald was none the less a magnate of immense influence, and one of the triumvirate (with Albany and Mar) who controlled the country during the captivity of James I. Latterly Douglas supported the cause of Charles VII of France against the English. Created lieutenant‐general of the French army, Douglas was killed in battle against John, duke of Bedford's forces at Verneuil (August 1424).
