Robert the Bruce King of Scots, Ronald McNair Scott, Carroll & Graf Publishers Inc, New York, 1982.
p10: "...The second Robert lived to a ripe old age. He had two sons, the third Robert of that name and William, who both predeceased him so that on his death in 1196 his inheritance passed to William's eldest son, the fourth Robert. There is a certain monotony to the Bruces' choice of Christian names.
"In 1209 the fourth Robert married Isobel, younger daughter of David, Earl of Huntingdon, the youngest of King David I's three grandsons of whom the two elder, Malcolm IV and William I, had succeeded him in turn on the Scottish throne. this marriage was to have a profound effect on the future of the Bruces.
"Isobel held large estates in her own right both in England and Scotland, and when the fourth Robert died in 1245 and Isobel in 1252, the fifth Robert (the Competitor) received lands in both countries of such extent as to make him one of the most influential men in either Scotland or England."
