Colin Fitzgerald pulls the antler of a stag and raises his spear to kill it. Other huntsmen rush to the aid of the fallen king. Alexander (1241-86) may have survived this episode, but he died aged 44 falling from a horse. His heir was his granddaughter, Margaret, Maid of Norway, but she died before she could be crowned, leaving the throne of Scotland to John Balliol.
