  • ID: I3388
  • Name: Alexander Livingstone
  • Suffix: of Callender
  • Prefix: Sir
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1346 in Callendar, Stirling
  • Death: BEF 6 NOV 1451 1
  • Occupation: Governor of Stirling. Host of the ?Black Dinner? of 1440.
  • Note:

    In 1440 Edinburgh Castle became the location for the 'Black Dinner', which saw the summary execution of the young William Douglas, 6th Earl of Douglas and his brother.
    Commentators tend to place the blame for the Black Dinner at the feet of Crichton, Livingston and particularly Avondale, as Douglas's death brought him the earldom of Douglas (as 7th earl), and the position of the most powerful magnate in Scotland.

    Sir Alexander Livingston of Callendar had possession of the young king James II, as the warden of the stronghold of Stirling Castle.
