    First Lord Darnley, and first Earl of Lennox of the Stewart line.

    Direct paternal great-great-great grandfather of James VI and I of Scotland and England.

    "[E]stablished his rights as Earl only after long controversy and then resigned the earldom's lands to his son in 1490, reserving his liferent […] [b]y which means he did not denude himself of the earldom but rather directed its destination." [The Ancestry of Charles II, citation details below]

    "Throughout his life Darnley's overriding ambition was to validate his claim to all or part of the earldom of Lennox. He was the grandson of John Stewart of Darnley and Elizabeth of Lennox, who were married shortly after 23 September 1406. Elizabeth was one of the three daughters of Duncan, earl of Lennox (executed in 1425). After 1437 Lennox had been held by Earl Duncan's eldest daughter, Isabella, duchess of Albany and countess of Lennox, the widow of Murdoch, duke of Albany. Isabella died without any legitimate heirs and in the years following her death Darnley pursued a claim to half of Lennox as the grandson of Countess Isabella's sister Elizabeth. The other half of the earldom was claimed by Sir John Haldane of Gleneagles and John Napier of Merchiston, husbands of the granddaughters of Earl Duncan's third daughter, Margaret of Lennox. Darnley's most serious rival, however, was Andrew Stewart, Lord Avondale, chancellor of the kingdom, who was the illegitimate son of Countess Isabella's son Walter."
