James II (Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh, 16 October 1430 – 3 August 1460) reigned as King of Scots from 1437 to his death.

He was the son of James I, King of Scots, and Joan Beaufort (daughter of John Beaufort, 1st Earl of Somerset, and Margaret Holland). He had an elder twin brother, Alexander Stewart, Duke of Rothesay, who lived long enough to receive a knighthood, but died in infancy. James became the father of James III. for more click here
