"Lady Margaret Leslie, married to Donald, Lord of the Isles"

from Family of Leslie

"Margaret or Mary Lesley, on the death of her brother Alexander, Earl of Ross, became heir-presumptive to her niece Euphemia in the earldom. She is frequently called Margaret, but her true name was Mary, as appears from Celtic records. She had married Donald, Lord of the Isles, and he, in his wife's name, claimed the earldom, and proceeded to seize it by force, as already stated, but in consequence of the battle of Harlaw the Lord of the Isles, though unconquered, abandoned his enterprise, if he did not abandon his pretensions, and the earldom of Ross, as stated, remained in the Governor's hands."
