  Marriage Notes:

"The prominence of Annabella's aunt would prove fortuitous to her niece. David II had no children by 1366, and his heir was his nephew, Robert Stewart. The relationship between Stewart and the king was tense at best, and David II had tried several options to divert the succession from Stewart, with no success. In March 1366, Annabella and John Stewart, lord of Kyle and son of Robert Stewart, were granted a papal dispensation for their marriage. The marriage was concluded before May 1367, at which point John's father granted his son and his new wife his earldom of Atholl. The marriage between Stewart's son and the niece of David's queen suggests that the king was acknowledging the possibility of a Stewart succession, but that he was grooming his perferred Stewart to take his place within the line of succession."
