He was kidnapped on 9th July, 1460 by Sir Alexander Boyd. and in 1479, he ordered the murder of one of his brothers and exiled the other on grounds that they were suspected of plotting against their brother, the king. On the 22nd July, 1482, he was unseated by his own nobles under the leadership of his uncle, the Earl of Atholl. Internal divisions among his enemies eventually allowed him to regain control. The kings brother, the Duke of Albany, was again forced into exile. James II was finally defeated and killed after a battle at Sauchieburn, near Stirling, under the nominal command of his son, the Duke of Rothesay. His wife Margaret was the daughter of King Christian I of Denmark and Norway, the dowry being the Orkneys, Shetlands and Western Isles. Succeeded by his son as James IV
