The Royal Stewart tartan is a rich red color with black stripes. It is crossed with lots of yellow, blue, green and white stripes.
The progenitor of this noble family was a Breton, Alan Fitz Flaad (around 1090-1120). In England, Henry I made Alan Sheriff of Shropshire. His son Walter Fitz Alan (1106-1177) was appointed High Steward of Scotland under the reign of David I (1084-1153). He manages the king's finances. The title was inherited through the family from Malcolm IV. Walter, 3rd High Steward of Scotland (d. 1246), who took the name of his office as the Stewart family name. Walter, the 6th High Steward (1296-1327), married Marjory (Marjorie) Bruce (d. 1296), the eldest daughter of King Robert the Bruce (1274-1329). When David II died (1324-1371), his successor was Walter Stewart's son Robert (1316-1390), 1st of the Stewart family. King Robert II's eldest son, John, succeeded him as Robert III.
The royal line of male stewarts was unbroken until the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots (1542-1587). Mary was executed for alleged conspiracy against Elizabeth I of England. Your son Jacob VI. became James I of England (1566-1625) and ruled for 57 years. His son Charles I was beheaded for defying the government, and Charles II was deposed for his religion. James VII and II, married to Mary of Modena, produced a Catholic heir, James Francis Edward Stuart. For this, James II was deposed and the family exiled to France.
In 1702, James Francis was blackmailed for high treason, citing his father's lost throne in London, and his titles lapsed. In 1715 and 1745, the Jacobite uprisings of 1715 and 1745 in Scotland aimed to restore a Stewart (now Stuart) to the Scottish throne, but failed.
The royal Stewart "settlement" is known as "The Royal Tartan". The stewarts have several tartans, with the royal being the most famous.
