        David of Scotland, 8th Earl of Huntingdon
        From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

        David of Scotland, 8th Earl of Huntingdon (born c. 1144, died 17 June 1219) was a Scottish prince. He was the youngest surviving son of Henry of Scotland, 3rd Earl of Huntingdon and Ada de Warenne, a daughter of William de Warenne, 2nd Earl of Surrey, and Elizabeth de Vermandois. His paternal grandfather was David I of Scotland. Huntingdon was granted to him after his elder brother William I of Scotland ascended the throne. David's son John succeeded him to the earldom.

        In the litigation for succession to the crown of Scotland in 1290-1292, David's sister's (Ada's) great-great-grandson Floris V, Count of Holland (who also then pursued the throne for himself) claimed that Earl David had renounced his hereditary rights to the throne of Scotland. The veracity of renunciation cannot have otherwise been ascertained, nor its reasons.

        He married Maude of Chester, daughter of Hugh de Kevelioc, 3rd Earl of Chester, by whom he had three sons (John, Robert, and Henry) and four daughters (Matilda, Ada, Isobel, and Margaret). After the extinction of the senior line of the Scottish royal house in 1290 when the legitimate line of William I of Scotland ended, David's descendants were the prime candidates for the throne. The two most notable claimants to the throne, Robert Bruce, 5th Lord of Annandale (grandfather of King Robert I of Scotland) and John of Scotland were his descendants through David's daughters Isobel of Huntingdon and Margaret of Huntingdon respectively.
