Misc. Notes
Walter Stewart or Steward (1293 -1326) was the 6th High steward of Scotland.

Signer of the Declaration of Arbroath, the Scottish Declaration of Independence, in 1320.

He was son to James Stewart, 5th High Steward of Scotland and Egidia de Burgh.

Walter married Marjorie Bruce, only daughter of Robert I of Scotland by his first wife Isabella of Mar.

Their son Robert was heir to the House of Bruce; he eventually inherited the Scottish throne when his maternal uncle David II died childless in 1371.

Walter commanded one of the schiltrons at the Battle of Bannockburn, but because of his youth and inexperience, its effective leader appears to have been Bruce's lieutenant James Douglas the Black. Walter Stewart and James Douglas were first cousins.

His descedants include the House of Stuart and all their successors at the throne of Great Britain.
