Scottish Monarch. Son of Robert II and Elizabeth Mure, he was crowned on August 14, 1390 at Scone. His given name was John, but that was considered an unlucky name for a king, so he adopted the name of his father and grandfather. He is described as feeble, timid, and unfit to rule, but he had a reputation for kindliness and justice despite having organized the Battle of the Clans between clans Chattay and Kay. His personal qualities and failing physical and mental health undermined his authority, and much of his power was transferred to his brother, the Duke of Albany. Robert married Annabella Drummond in 1367, by whom he had 7 children. He died at Rothesay Castle at the age of 69, after having described himself as "the worst of kings and the most wretched of men". Queen Victoria later paid for the construction of a new tomb after a visit to the abbey.
