HISTORICAL FACTS AND HISTORIOGRAPHICAL MYTHS ON EARL DOUGLAS’S REIGN IN SCOTLAND IN 1437-1439

Magakov Gennadii Yur'evich
Southern Federal University


Abstract. The article examines the short period (March, 25, 1437 - June, 26, 1439) of lieutenant-general Archibald, Earl of Douglas’s regency under the infant King James II Stewart. Relying on the well-established historical facts the author tries to dispel the historiographical myths created in the 30s of the XVI century, adopted by Scottish historiography of the XIX - beginning of the XX century and sur-prisingly revived by the modern domestic historians.
