No, Margaret (Graham) Stewart was married to Robert, Duke of Albany and brother to King Robert III.The Duke was regent but not King. King Robert III married Annabelle Drummond and they had seven children and he fathered a couple of natural children besides. Therer are 16 children listed under him here - some are likely his brother's children with Margaret Graham. Perhaps someone could have a look.
