Arthur Stewart, Duke of Rothesay

Arthur Stewart, Duke of Rothesay

Arthur Stewart, Duke of Rothesay (20 October, 1509, Holyrood Palace - 14 July, 1510, Edinburgh Castle) was the second son of James IV of Scotland and Margaret Tudor.

At the time of his birth, James IV had survived his own brothers. His only previous legitimate son James, Duke of Rothesay had died the previous year. The newborn Duke of Rothesay and his father were the only living descendants of his paternal grandfather James III of Scotland. The Heir presumptive since 1508 was John Stewart, Duke of Albany, a nephew of James III.

The young Duke died only a year after his birth. His death left James IV again childless and the Duke of Albany again heir to the throne. His younger brother would not be born until 1512 but would eventually succeed as James V of Scotland.
