DOUGLAS, William 6th Earl of Douglas 1

  • Born: About 1425
  • Died: 24 November 1440, Edinburgh Castle, Scotland 1

   Cause of his death was execution.1

  General Notes:

"Both sons were summarily beheaded at Edinburgh Castle on trumped up charges, in the presence of the child King James II. The so-called 'Black Dinner' thus broke the power of the 'Black' Douglases. The lordships of Annandale and Bothwell were annexed by the crown, Galloway to Margaret Douglas, and the Douglas lands and earldom passed to William's great-uncle James Douglas, Earl of Avondale, who was himself implicated, with Sir William Crichton, in the murder of the young earl."
