    5th Earl of Carrick. Also m. Isabella of Ross. "Sir Edward de Bruce, 2nd son of Margaret, suo jure Countess of Carrick [SCT], by her 2nd husband, Robert de Bruce, was, by his eldest brother King Robert I, created, shortly before 24 October 1313, Earl of Carrick [SCT], with remainder to the heirs male of his body. He appears to have been also LORD OF GALLOWAY. The Irish and Scots in Ulster having been oppressed by the English, he landed at Carrickfergus, 25 May 1315, and, on 2 May 1316, was crowned KING OF IRELAND. Though the expedition ended in failure and his own death, he gained several victorie over the English, notably against the Earl of Ulster at Conyers, 10 September 1315, over Roger Mortimer [afterwards earl of Marc] at Kenlis, co. Kildare, 6 December of the same year, and over Edmund Butler the Justiciar [IRL], at Ardskull, co. Kildare, 20 January 1315/6. He is said to have married Isabel, daughter of John (OF STRATHBOGIE), EARL OF ATHOLL [SCT] by Margaret, daughter of Donald, EARL OF MAR [SCT]. He had a dispensation for marriagae (which probably never took place) 1 June 1317, with Isabel, daughter of William, EARL OF Ross [SCT]. He died s.p. legitimate, being slain at the battle of Dundalk, 14 October 1318, when the Earldom reverted to the Crown [SCT]. [CP 3:56-7, 14:152]."
