So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

    Alan FitzRoland, Lord of Gallaway (1185-1234)
    Alan FitzRoland, Lord of Gallaway (1185-1234)
    Birth: 1185
    Wigtown
    Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
    Death: Feb., 1234, Scotland

    Alan FitzRoland, Lord of Galloway and Constable of Scotland. He was a "leading thirteenth-century Scottish magnate. As the hereditary Lord of Galloway and Constable of Scotland, he was one of the most influential men in the Kingdom of Scotland and Irish Sea zone." [Wikipedia]

    Eldest son of Roland FitzUhtred, Lord of Galloway and Helen de Morville. Grandson of Uhtred and great grandson of Fergus, the King of Galloway, who was married to a daughter of King Henry I of England. He was the grandfather of King John Balliol of Scotland.

    Alan married a de Lacy, thought to be a daughter of Roger de Lacy, Constable of Chester. They had several children including boys who died young:
    * Daughter, died as Scottish hostage 1213
    * Helen, wife of Roger de Quincy

    Alan's second wife was Margaret de Huntingdon, the daughter of David of Scotland, 8th Earl of Huntingdon by his wife, Matilda of Chester, daughter of Hugh de Kevelioc, 3rd Earl of Chester. His children with Margaret were:
    * Christina, wife of William de Forz
    * Dervorguilla of Galloway, wife of John Balliol, 5th Baron de Balliol
    * Thomas, died young

    A third wife, no issue, was Rose de Lacy. He also had an illegitimate son named Thomas.

    Alan was the most powerful and influential man in Scotland, known for his military strength and army size, his extensive holdings in Scotland, Ireland and England, affected the decisions of Scottish kings and was one of John Lackland's advisors concerning the Magna Carta. He was the last legitimate ruler of Galloway, and his family was remarkable for their religious contributions. His great grandfather founded Dundrennan Abbey where he was buried, and Alan founded Tongland Abbey. Alan accompanied Robert de Brus and Walter FitzAlan on a pilgrimage to Canterbury to witness the placing of the remains of Saint Thomas.

    Alan's life was incredibly full, complicated and a combination of Gaelic, Frankish, Scottish and English events. No simple bio could possibly describe it all.

    After his death, the position of Constable went to his son in law, Roger de Quincy. His only surviving son, the illegitimate Thomas, might have ruled Galloway had the Scottish crown not disallowed it by seizing the lordship and splitting the lands between his daughters, sans the Irish holdings which were given to the Bissets at an unknown point.
