Here's an article on Marie de Coucy, Queen of Scots someone I knew practically nothing about but an interesting read.

I was surprised to learn recently that Yolande de Dreux, second wife & Queen of Alexander III gave birth to a still-born child several months after he had died accidentally. Had the child lived, Scottish history might have been very different indeed.

In the case of the Scottish independence that has more chances now there will be a part of the population supporting a different King than that of England?

They would probably eventually settle for a republic with God knows who as president and Nicola Sturgeon as Prime Minister.

Yes indeed and also Yolande of Dreux's son from her second marriage,Jean de Montfort Duke of Brittany was one of the causes of the War of the Breton Succession which then led to the 100 years war!

In a republic no aristocratic titles are legally recognised, so it would probably be a situation in which peers would retain their titles, (as they do in republics in Europe like Germany,) but they would have no standing any more. There wouldn't be any more United Kingdom if Scotland became independent and a republic.

Why a republic? There is no republican tradition in Scotland.

There is a republican movement in Scotland, and it's closely linked to the independence movement.

If Scotland were to become independent it would face 3 options: keep the House of Windsor, restore one of the Stuart lines, or become a republic. The 2nd is the least likely to happen.
