Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1144
Cambridgeshire, England
Death: Jun. 17, 1219
Cambridgeshire, England

David of Scotland was a Scottish prince and Earl of Huntingdon. He was the youngest surviving son of Henry of Scotland, 3rd Earl of Huntingdon and Ada de Warenne, a daughter of William de Warenne, 2nd Earl of Surrey, and Elizabeth of Vermandois. His paternal grandfather was David I of Scotland. Huntingdon was granted to him after his elder brother William I of Scotland ascended the throne. David's son John succeeded him to the earldom
David married Maud of Chester, daughter of Hugh de Kevelioc, 3rd Earl of Chester, by whom he had three sons and four daughters:
Margaret of Huntingdon
Isobel of Huntingdon
John, his successor as Earl
Robert, died young
Henry, died young
Matilda (?-1219), died unmarried
Ada (?-1241), married Henry de Hastings, father of Henry de Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings
After the extinction of the senior line of the Scottish royal house in 1290, when the legitimate line of William the Lion of Scotland ended, David's descendants were the prime candidates for the throne. The two most notable claimants to the throne, Robert Bruce, 5th Lord of Annandale (grandfather of King Robert I of Scotland) and John of Scotland were his descendants through David's daughters Isobel and Margaret.
