  Marriage Notes:

"He (Alexander Stewart) deserted his wife for a woman named Mariota, who may have been the mother of his illegitimate children..... For deserting his wife he was reprimanded and excommunicated, 2 November 1389, by the Bishops of Moray and Ross, and ordered to adhere to his wife and not illtreat her, under a penalty of 200. In revenge he burned the towns of Forres and Elgin, and the Cathedral of Elgin in 1390. Ecclesiastical penalties made him humbly submissive, and after satisfying the Bishop of Moray, and doing penance at the church of Blackfriars Monastery at Perth in presence of his father the King he received absolution from the Bishop of St. Andrews."

from Scots Peerage (vol 2)




"Mariota. She is supposed to be the 'Mariota filia Athyn' handfasted to Alexander Stewart, Lord of Badenoch, and to be the mother of his children."
