John Comyn, Earl of Buchan

John Comyn (died 1308) was Earl of Buchan and an important member of Clan Comyn during the early 14th century. He was a chief opponent of Robert the Bruce in the civil war that paralleled the War of Scottish Independence.

Confusion between the two men has affected the study of this period of history. for more click here
