    Notes 
    • Roger died of wounds shortly after the battle of Sauchiburn

      James IV gained the throne by supporting a group of dissident Scottish nobles, who had captured the king, James' father James III of Scots, as an English army was invading and tried to force him to abdicate. In 1488, the rebels had fought the battle of Sauchiburn against James III, both sides flying the Scottish flag of the Lion Rampant, and defeated and killed him. James IV was then crowned at Scone but when he discovered that he had been used by the rebels to eradicate his father the king , he did penance by wearing an iron chain around his waist for the rest of his life.
