  • Notes 
    • Also called Lachlan, de Galwaye, Galloway. "Known in his youth as Lachlan, his preference in adulthood for being known as Roland, the Norman-French equivalent of Lachlan, symbolizes the spread of foreign influences into Galloway which followed the overthrow in 1160 of his grandfather, Fergus of Galloway." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

      Hereditary Constable of Scotland, 1196-1200 (jure uxoris).
