    Also called Alexander of Dundonald. 4th High Steward of Scotland. "4th High Steward of Scotland, 1246-1283 and Baron of Garlies from 30 Nov 1263. [...] Councillor in 1255 to the underage King of Scotland, Alexander III, and one of the regents of Scotland. Upon his marriage he seized the Isles of Bute and Arran and as a result fought and defeated the Norwegians at the battle of Largs, in Cunningham, 2 Oct 1263, ceding the Isles to Scotland. In 1264 he invaded the Isle of Man which was then annexed to the Crown." [The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz, citation details below.]

    "He seems to have commanded the armed force which, at Largs, in October 1263, successfully defended Scotland against attempted invasion by Hákon IV, king of Norway. It seems to have been in Alexander's time that the Stewarts acquired the lordship of Cowal, with a castle at Dunoon. Moreover, the style senescallus Scotie, 'stewart of Scotland', now replaced the older dapifer regis Scotie, 'steward of the king of Scotland', thus indicating a major office of state, significant in a national context."
