There was no King named Rufus. King William II of England
was nicknamed Rufus on account of his reddish complexion. As to tolerating
King David, the Scots had 2, David I ruled 1124-1153 and David II reigned
1329-1332 and 1333-1371. there would have been a David III if Robert III of Scots`
elder son had survived him He was b 1378 and died 1402 and was styled Duke of
Rothesay. 4 years later his 10 year old younger brother James was captured by
King Henry IV of England while on his way to King Charles VI of France. Robert
III apparently died of a stroke or heart attack on recieving word from the
English King and James I was kept in England until 1424. There were also three
Welah Princes named Daffydd.
