About Duncan Campbell, 2nd Lord of Glenorchy

Born in 1455 in Kilchurn Castle, Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland, and died Sept. 9, 1513 in the Battle of Flodden Field, Branxton, Northumberland, England, and is buried in the Campbell Mausoleum at St. Munn's Church, Kilmun, Argyll. He married MARGARET DOUGLAS. She was born in 1456 in Kilmaurs, Ayrshire, Scotland, and died in 1472 in Scotland.

The Battle of Flodden or Flodden Field or occasionally Battle of Branxton was fought in the county of Northumberland in northern England on Sept. 9, 1513, between an invading Scots army under King James IV and an English army commanded by the Earl of Surrey. It ended in victory for the English army, and was the largest battle in numbers fought between the two nations. James IV was himself killed in the battle, becoming the last British monarch to suffer such a fate. As the nineteenth century antiquarian John Riddell supposed, nearly every noble family in Scotland would have lost a member at Flodden. The dead are remembered by the song (and pipe tune) "The Flowers of the Forest." Listen to the tune: http://www.whitestick.co.uk/midi/flowers.mid
