This person was created through the import of Kahn Family Tree 3.2.11_2011-04-29.ged on 30 April 2011. The following data was included in the gedcom. You may wish to edit it for readability. The title of High Steward or Great Steward was given in the 12th century to Walter Fitzalan, whose descendants became the House of Stewart. In 1371, the last High Steward inherited the throne, and thereafter the title of High Steward of Scotland has been held as a subsidiary title to that of Duke of Rothesay, held by the heir-apparent. Thus, currently, The Prince of Wales is High Steward of Scotland, sometimes known as the Prince and Great Steward of Scotland. [edit]High Stewards of Scotland, c. 1150–present
