  • Notes 
    • "The wife of Eoin/John mac Donald and (2ndly) Duncan, Earl of Lennox was (in English) Helen Campbell, but this could easily have been rendered Elen or Elena, hence Eleanora. She was evidently the namesake of her paternal grandmother Helen de Menteith, a daughter of Sir John de Menteith the well-known 'betrayer of Wallace' (younger brother of Alexander, Earl of Menteith). Scots Peerage has this mangled as 'Helena, daughter of Sir John Mor, son of the Earl of Lennox' [SP I:325]." [John P. Ravilious, citation details below]
