In the main text it says: "Diplomacy further strengthened the reconciliation by the marriage of Alexander to Henry's sister Joan of England on June 18 or June 25, 1221."
Then in the section titled Consorts it says: "She and Alexander II married on June 21, 1221"
Treaty of York
My reading of the Treaty of York is that it did NOT define, or redefine, the Scots English boundary as stated. Though I rather suspect that some subsequent and unscrupulous Scottish king claimed it had. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:24, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
Introduction and Early Life
There are no citations given in these two sections. This is my first time using the Talk Page so I don't know how relevant the lack of citations may be. Perhaps this is considered common knowledge...?
King of Scots
There is no citation re Alexander's second marriage to Marie de Coucy or that she gave birth to Alexander III, who would rule after his father. Because this involves the line of succession, this would seem to warrant a citation.
This section ends (seems to end) by introducing the dispute with the Norwegians. Actually, the last sentence makes reference to King John but there is no context. The Norwegian king was King Hakon and the earlier reference to an English king was King Henry. It is not clear who King John refers to or whether it is connected to the dispute with Norway. Regardless, there is no mention of the land and sea battles with Norway in October of 1263, the death of King Hakon or of the Scottish victory, which gave Scotland control of the Hebrides.
