From their early positions as dapifers (cup bearers) of Dol, Brittany, they were hereditary stewards of Scotland, from the mid twelfth century until the seventh steward became Robert II, King of Scotland in 1371. The Stewart dynasty then ruled Scotland, and England as well from 1603-1714, followed by three pretenders in the direct line until 1807. By Stewart Ross (b.1947), novelist and historian, specialising in Scottish titles.
