King and Queen of Scotland In California

On this day, I offer the Scottish Crown to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. William of Orange was the last King of Scotland. My Rosamond ancestors were members of the Orange Order and fled to America to become Hillbillies – followers of William. The Getty-Geddes family is associated with Clan Rose and Hugh Ros, who is kin to the Knight Templar of the same name. May the Rougemont Templars surround this Royal Couple and their blessed Child in California where Archie’s grandmother, England’s Rose, had made plans to live. Princess Diana descends from the Stewart King Charles.

May the Getty Family be the host of these royals in America. Welcome to California. May the Getty family enhance your long stay. My you be promoters of the Arts, Music, and Literature.

Early Origins of the Getty family

The surname Getty was first found in Nairnshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Narann) in northern Scotland, today part of the Council Area of Highland where they held the lands of Geddes, formerly held by the Rose family.

The Scottish Nation

ROSE, the name of a Nairnshire sept, the chief of which is Rose of Kilravock, pronounced Kilraik. The name is obviously derived from the British word Ros, a promontory. According to a tradition at one period prevalent among the clan Donald, the first of the Kilravock family came from Ireland, with one of the Macdonalds, lords of the Isles. These does not seem, however, to be any foundation for this, except, perhaps, that as vassals of the earls of Ross, the clan Rose were connected for about half a century with the lordship of the Isles. Mr. Hugh Rose, the genealogist of the Kilravock family, is of opinion that they were originally from England, and from their having three water bouggets in their coat armour, like the English family of Roos, it has been conjectured that they were of the same stock. But these figures were carried by other families than those of the name of Rose, or Roos. Four water bouggets with a cross in the middle were the arms of the Counts d’Eu in Normandy, and of the ancient earls of Essex in England of the surname of Bourchier. They were indicative of an ancestor of the respective families who bore them having been engaged in the crusades, and forced, in the deserts of Palestine, to fight for and carry water in the leathern vessels called bouggets, bugets, or buckets, which were usually slung across the horse or camel’s back.The family of Rose of Kilravock appear to have been settled in the county of Nairn in the reign of David I., their first designation being of Geddes. In the beginning of the reign of Alexander II., that is about 1219, Hugh Rose of Geddes was witness to the foundation charter of the priory of Beauly by Sir John Bisset of Lovat. His son, also named Hugh Rose of Geddes, acquired the lands of Kilravock, which became the chief title of the family, by his marriage with Mary, daughter of Sir Andrew de Bosco, by Elizabeth, his wife, daughter and co-heiress of Sir John Bisset of Lovat; which Elizabeth, designed Lady Kilravock, in her widowhood, disponed the lands of Kilravock to her son-in-law, Hugh Rose, and her daughter, Mary, his wife, and their heirs. The charter granted by her was confirmed by King John Baliol. This Hugh Rose, first of Kilravock, died about 1306.

Origins of the clan[edit]

Victorian eraromanticised depiction of a member of the clan by R. R. McIan, from The Clans of the Scottish Highlands, published in 1845.

The chiefs of the Clan Rose were a Norman family.[2] They had no connection to the ancient Celtic family of Clan Ross.[2] They derive from Ros, near Caen in Normandy and accompanied the early Norman kings to England. They appear to be connected with two other Norman families; the de Bissets and the de Boscos.[2] All three of these families disappear from the records of Wiltshire and Dorset where they are first known to have settled after the Norman conquest, and they reappear in the mid thirteenth century around the area of the Moray Firth.[2] Elizabeth de Bisset’s family owned the lands of Kilravock and she married Andrew de Bosco.[2] Their daughter was Marie, who in around 1290 married Hugo de Ros, whose lands were at Geddes.[2] Hugh’s (Hugo’s) father had been a witness to the foundation charter of Beauly Priory, which was erected by Sir John Bisset of Lovat.[2] Hugh and Marie established their home at Kilravock which remained the home of the chief of Clan Rose until 2012.[2]

Wars of Scottish Independence[edit]

During the Wars of Scottish Independence the Barons of Kilravock supported the cause of Scottish Independence.[2] In 1306 they captured Invernairn Castle for Robert the Bruce.[2]

14th to 15th centuries[edit]

Hugh Rose, fourth of Kilravock married the daughter of the constable of Urquhart Castle, Janet Chisholm.[2] This brought the Rose chief extensive lands and made an addition to the chief’s coat of arms.[2] A boar’s head, as used by the Chisholm family was added to the Rose’s shield.[2] In the time of Hugh Rose, fifth of Kilravock all of the family’s writs and charters were lost when Elgin Cathedral was burned by Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan (the Wolf of Badenoch).[2] The next Baron of Kilravock, John Rose, obtained charters from James I of Scotland, the Earl of Ross and the Chisholm.[2]

In about 1460 the seventh Baron of Kilravock built the Tower of Kilravock.[2] The Earls of Ross were forfeited in 1474 and Hugh Rose received a charter dated March 1475 under the Great Seal of Scotland.[2] The Clan Mackintosh later seized the tower in 1482, however they soon surrendered it.[2]

Hugh Rose of Kilravock had expected to marry Murial Calder, daughter of the chief of Clan Calder who was seated at Cawdor Castle.[2] However she was carried off by the Clan Campbell and Cawdor Castle has belonged to the Clan Campbell of Cawdor ever since.[2]

The merry monarch King Charles II of England, Scotland, and Ireland, famously fathered many children. However, his Queen Catherine of Braganza suffered three miscarriages, and they had no surviving legitimate issue. So how did King Charles II’s line make it back into the British Royal Family?

Coincidentally, both of the Prince of Wales’s two wives were descendants of King Charles II through an illegitimate line.

The Duchess of Cornwall is a descendant of King Charles II through the youngest of his seven illegitimate sons, Charles Lennox, 1st Duke of Richmond. The line goes as follows:

  1. King Charles II
  2. Charles Lennox, 1st Duke of Richmond
  3. Lady Anne Lennox
  4. George Keppel, 3rd Earl of Albemarle
  5. William Keppel, 4th Earl of Albemarle
  6. George Thomas Keppel, 6th Earl of Albemarle
  7. William Keppel, 7th Earl of Albemarle
  8. Lieutenant-Colonel George Keppel
  9. Sonia Keppel
  10. The Hon. Rosalind Cubitt
  11. The Duchess of Cornwall

In addition, the Prince of Wales’s first wife, Diana, Princess of Wales, was also descended from King Charles II twice over and coincidentally also from his brother King James II. The lines go as follows:

  1. King Charles II
  2. Henry FitzRoy, 1st Duke of Grafton
  3. Charles FitzRoy, 2nd Duke of Grafton
  4. Lady Isabella FitzRoy
  5. Lord Hugh Seymour
  6. Colonel Sir Horace Beauchamp Seymour
  7. Adelaide Seymour
  8. Charles Spencer, 6th Earl Spencer
  9. Albert Spencer, 7th Earl Spencer
  10. John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer
  11. Diana, Princess of Wales
  1. King Charles II
  2. Charles Lennox, 1st Duke of Richmond
  3. Lady Anne Lennox
  4. Lady Elizabeth Keppel
  5. John Russell, 6th Duke of Bedford
  6. Lady Louisa Jane Russell
  7. James Hamilton, 2nd Duke of Abercorn
  8. James Hamilton, 3rd Duke of Abercorn
  9. Lady Cynthia Hamilton
  10. John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer
  11. Diana, Princess of Wales

Although King James II had several surviving legitimate children, including Queens Mary II and Anne, his legitimate line has died out. Through an illegitimate line, Diana is also a descendant of his.

  1. King James II
  2. Henrietta FitzJames
  3. James Waldegrave, 1st Earl Waldegrave
  4. James Waldegrave, 2nd Earl Waldegrave
  5. Lady Anne Horatia Waldegrave
  6. Colonel Sir Horace Beauchamp Seymour
  7. Adelaide Seymour
  8. Charles Spencer, 6th Earl Spencer
  9. Albert Spencer, 7th Earl Spencer
  10. John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer
  11. Diana, Princess of Wales

When The Duke of Cambridge eventually becomes King, a descendant of King Charles II and King James II will, at last, sit upon the throne

Henrietta Maria and the arts[edit]

The Queen’s House at Greenwich, completed under Henrietta Maria’s sponsorship of Inigo Jones.

Henrietta Maria had a strong interest in the arts, and her patronage of various activities was one of the various ways in which she tried to shape court events.[16] Henrietta Maria and Charles were “dedicated and knowledgeable collectors” of paintings.[31] Henrietta Maria was particularly known for her patronage of the Italian painter Orazio Gentileschi, who came to England with Henrietta Maria in 1626 as part of her favourite François de Bassompierre‘s entourage.[42] Orazio and his daughter Artemisia Gentileschi were responsible for the huge ceiling paintings of the Queen’s House at Henrietta Maria’s palace in Greenwich.[43] Another of Henrietta Maria’s favourite painters was the Italian Guido Reni,[44] but she also supported the miniature painters Jean Petitot and Jacques Bourdier.[45]

Henrietta Maria became a key patron in Stuart masques, complementing her husband’s strong interest in paintings and the visual arts.[46] She performed in various works herself, including as an Amazon in William Davenant‘s 1640 “Salmacida Spolia”.[16] Henrietta Maria also helped to support the musical works of English composer Nicholas Lanier,[47] and was responsible for Davenant being appointed the Poet Laureat in 1638.[48]

The queen liked physical sculpture and design too, and retained the designer Inigo Jones as her surveyor of works during the 1630s.[5] Like Charles, Henrietta Maria was enthusiastic about garden design, although not horticulture itself. She employed the French gardener André Mollet to create a baroque garden at Wimbledon House.[49] She patronised the Huguenot sculptor Le Sueur,[45] and she was responsible for the lavish creation of her famous chapel, that, although plain on the outside, was beautifully crafted inside with gold and silver reliquaries, paintings, statues, a chapel garden and a magnificent altarpiece by Rubens.[50] It also had an unusual monstrance, designed by François Dieussart to exhibit the Holy Sacrament.[50]

King Robert II of Scotland | Britroyals

Name: King Robert II of Scotland
Father: Walter Stewart
Mother: Marjorie daughter of Robert Bruce
Relation to Elizabeth II: 17th great-grandfather
House of: Stewart
Born: March 2, 1316 at Paisley
Ascended to the throne: February 22, 1371 aged 54 years
Crowned: March 26, 1371 at Scone Abbey, Perthshire
Married:(1) Elizabeth Mure, 1336
Married:(2) Euphemia of Moray, 1355
Children: 10 by Elizabeth Mure including John (Robert III), 4 by Euphemia and several illegitimate.
Died: April 19, 1390, at Dundonald Castle, Ayrshire, aged 74 years, 1 month, and 17 days
Buried at: Scone Abbey
Succeeded by: his son John who took the name Robert III

Robert was a grandson of Robert Bruce, and the first in the House of Stewart dynasty. The name came from his ancestor Walter Stewart who was appointed High Steward of Scotland by David I. He had escaped following the defeat of David II at Halidon Hill in 1333 and took over as Guardian of Scotland while David was in exile in France.

He was a mature man of 54 when he succeeded to the throne on the death of David, but he was weak king and did not rule well over the nobles who were critical of him leading to a loss of prestige of the crown. His heir John took over the rule to attempt to restore law and order.

A truce with England in 1384 was short lived, and the border wars continued. In 1388 the Scots under James Douglas won a victory at Otterburn near Newcastle over Henry Percy ‘Hotspur’ of Northumberland.

Robert had 14 legitimate children and at least 7 illegitimate. He was succeeded by his son John who took the name Robert III.

Queen Elizabeth II and Scotland

Her Majesty the Queen is bound to Scotland by ties of ancestry, affection and duty. She is descended from the Royal House of Stewart on both sides of her family. Her relationship with Scotland and the Scots began in childhood, and has deepened during her many private as well as official visits during the seven decades of her reign.

Her parents shared a common ancestor in Robert II, King of Scots. Through her father King George VI she is directly descended from James VI of Scotland. Through her mother’s family, the Bowes-Lyons, Earls of Strathmore, she can trace her ancestry back through generations of Scottish nobility to Sir John Lyon, Thane of Glamis, who married Robert II’s daughter in the fourteenth century.  

Our gracious young Queen’

Shortly after her Coronation at Westminster Abbey, the Queen spent a week in Scotland and attended a National Service of thanksgiving and dedication at St Giles’ Cathedral, Edinburgh, on 24 June 1953. Cheering crowds witnessed a magnificent procession accompanying the royal carriage bearing the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to St Giles. There the Honours of Scotland, the Crown, Sceptre and Sword, were ceremonially presented to the sovereign, witnessed by 1,700 worshippers from all walks of Scottish life, and seen live on television. The Moderator of the General Assembly captured the moment: ’Today you and I are Scotland, greeting with all that we have to offer of love and duty our gracious young Queen.’ 

The next king or queen of Scotland – Channel 4 News

he House of Stuart

The first obvious candidate is another octogenarian though. Franz, Duke of Bavaria (pictured below), is considered by Jacobites as the legitimate heir to the deposed Stuart line. The House of Stuart was founded by Robert II of Scotland, grandson of the English-conquering Robert the Bruce.

Eleven Stuarts later and after having succeeded to the English throne in 1603, they were overthrown. Famously, Bonnie Prince Charlie, the Young Pretender, attempted to wrest the crown back in the failed Jacobite uprising of 1745.

But could his descendant Franz actually be the man to reinvigorate the Scottish line?

Well he’s German – but then that wasn’t a problem for the Windsors. He’s also Catholic, but that will be fine too in a new inclusive Scotland. Even the English are repealing that ban. The duke – who was recently described on a German royalist website as a “confirmed bachelor”, shuns the limelight, collecting modern art and trophy dogs. Dackelmischlings to be precise – which aren’t a million miles away from a corgi.

He’s only given his opinion on the succession once, and even that was to deny any inclination. “All this interest makes him smile,” said his spokesman. “Because really, he is very happy and satisfied with being the Duke of Bavaria.”

Belgium’s Bonnie Prince?

He has a rival in the Belgian Michael Lafosse. Mr Lafosse says he’s actually the nearest living descendant of the bonnie prince through an illegitimate line. Historians have rubbished his claims, though that hasn’t stopped him styling himself HRH the 7th Count of Albany and penning a book called The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland.

Unfortunately he was last reported fleeing his Caledonian homeland because of passport difficulties and moving back across the channel to live with his mother – a princess or a shopkeeper depending on whether you believe Lafosse or the Belgian authorities.

But if we dismiss the Stuarts, what about Scotland’s other regal family, the Bruces? Scottish constitutional expert Roddy Martine suggests the Earl of Elgin & Kincardine.

“He is certainly descended from Robert the Bruce’s grandfather, who made the claim to the Scottish throne in the first place,” he told Channel 4 News. “Unfortunately, although he is acute as ever, Andrew Elgin is now 89. His son Charlie, Lord Bruce, however is 53, and shouldn’t be passed over.”

Mr Martine also points out that the current Duke of Buccleuch is directly descended from Charles II and would be a contender.
