Death of the Prince Royal and his sister Margaret Queen of Norway

The Prince of Scotland, who from infancy had been of a sickly constitution, died not long after his marriage, leaving no issue; and intelligence soon after came, from Norway that his sister, Queen Margaret, was also dead, having left an only child, Margaret, generally called the Maiden of Norway.  David, the second son of Alexander, had died when a boy; and thus the King of Scotland, still in the flower of his age, found himself a widower, and bereft by death of all his children.
