Excerpt from The Romance of a King's Life Over this land and this people reigned, in 1402, Robert III. Stuart. A strange doom rested on his race. The genius of the family, angel and demon by turns, appeared on birthdays to lay Within the cradle crowns of gold, of flowers, or of laurel and the infant grew up brave and fair, a peerless poet, a lover of art, a sturdy soldier, to perish by the dagger, to mount the steps of the scaffold, or to die forgotten in the dismal palace of St. Germain in France.
