    Default Isabel of Scotland, born 1165

    This princess married Robert de Ros; her father was William (The Lion) , King if Scotland, but who was her mother?

    Was it Isabel Avenal, making her illegitimate

    or Ermengarde de Beaumont (wife of King William)?

    William didn't marry Ermengarde (1170-1233) until 1186. William & Ermengarde had daughters Margaret, Isabella & Marjory and son Alexander.
    Isabel d'Avenal (abt 1143-1234) was William's mistress and gave him 3 daughters & 2 sons, including (presumably) your Isabel. However, the birthdate for Isabel of Scotland varies a bit, depending on where you look.
