Alexander III of Scotland was just seven years old when he inherited the

throne. South of the border, England's King Henry III saw this as his

chance to assert his paramountcy over the kingdom. At the age of ten,

the boy was married to Henry's daughter.

But through the hazards of power politics and dynastic marriage - one

man stood by the young monarch. Whether it was shooting wild geese,

helping him escape from the prison-like confines of Edinburgh Castle or

teaching him to stand up both to his ever-threatening English

father-in-law and the unending feuds of his own countrymen, David de

Lindsay of Luffness in East Lothian was Alexander's one true and

constant friend.

But David's only wish was to be a crusader, a wish he was finally to

fulfil when the boy became a man.

The turbulent 13th century story of the child king Alexander III of

Scotland and David de Lindsay of Luffness, his one true supporter, in an

age of crusades and wars.
