ⓘ Lord of Abernethy

The Lord of Abernethy was from the 12th century to the 14th century the hereditary holder of the church and lands of the Scottish monastery at Abernethy. It gradually evolved alongside the title Abbot of Abernethy, displacing that term in extant sources by the end of the 13th century. It was held by the descendants of Gille Micheil, Earl of Fife.

As Lord Abernethy, is a subsidiary title of the Dukes of Hamilton and Brandon. In the Mormaers and Earls of Fife had the honour of the coronation of the new king of Scots. After the failure of the main line of Macduff, and after the execution of Murdoch Stewart, Earl of Fife in 1425, in honor retreated to the second line period, those of Abernethy.

Through them, the honour was regarded as the transfer of the Douglas, Earl of Angus, especially at the coronation of James III in 1460, when George Douglas, 4th Earl of Angus declared, "no! Now, when I set it to your graces head, let me see, who would be so bold to move him."

This continuity has survived to the present day, especially at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, when the then Lord Abernethy and Angus, Douglas Douglas-Hamilton, 14th Duke of Hamilton gave birth to and presented the crown of Scotland to the Queen at the Cathedral of St. Giles. Hamiltons son, the 15th Duke, and the 16th Duke performed similar duties at the opening of the Scottish Parliament, since 1999.
