Name: William Crichton
Suffix: 1st Lord Crichton
Occupation: Chancellor of Scotland
Change Date: 7 JAN 2009
Three years later William was once again Chancellor of Scotland. He was sent to arrange the marriage of the king to Marie of Gueldres, and for this service to the king he was raised to the peerage as Lord Crichton. George became Earl of Caithness, and Admiral of Scotland. The political jockeying continued around the king however, with all of the intricacies of a game of chess.
In 1453, William Lord Crichton dies, but not before turning vast land holdings over to his wife. The king retaliates by forcing George Crichton to name him as heir to much of his lands.
In 1454, George dies, and his son James Crichton attacks castle Blackness and holds it successfully against the king. This attempt to regain lost family property fails however when James dies suddenly, also in 1454. This ends the "Reign" of the cousins Crichton and their 50-year rise to power through two Stewart kings.
