Robert Stuart is a member of the House of Stuart.
European Aristocracy
Robert Stuart was a member of the aristocracy in British Isles.


Robert (Bruce)[1] Stuart, Prince of Scotland, was born on either the 18 January or 18 February 1602[2] at Dunfermline, the third son of James VI, King of Scotland (later also James I of England) and his wife Anne of Denmark.

He was designated as Duke of Kintyre, Marquess of Wigton and Earl of Carrick (or Duke of Kintyre and Lorne, Marquess of Wigtown, Earl of Carrick and Lord of Annderdail) on 2 May 1602,[3] but presumably was never formally created as such, because of his early death.

He died at Dunfermline on 27 May 1602 and was buried in Dunfermline Abbey.
