HistoryEdit

George Gordon, 2nd Earl of Huntly (before 1455 – 8 June 1501) was Chancellor of Scotland from 1498–1501. He married Elizabeth Dunbar, the widow of the Count of Moray, on 20 May 1445. There were no children from the marriage; the two were married for only a short time before he obtained a divorce in order to marry Annabella of Scotland, daughter of James I of Scotland. The couple had at least one daughter, though some sources list them as having as many as six children. The Earl obtained an annulment on 24 July 1471 on the basis of Annabella of Scotland's consanguinity with Elizabeth Dunbar. He then married his mistress, Elizabeth Hay, on 12 May 1476. Gordon fought on the King's side against the Douglases during The Douglas Rebellion and helped secure a defeat at the Battle of Brechin. The 2nd Earl completed the building work that his father begun in constructing Huntly Castle. He died at Stirling Castle on 8 June 1501.
