The reason why Eogan of Argyle interested himself for Magnus, was perhaps that the latter had then already married his daughter for we learn from Fordun, where the death of Magnus is related, that he had been married to " fillia Eugenii de Ergadia," who after his death married Malise, Earl of Stratherne. This may also prove the identity of Eugenius or Eogan of Argyle and the here so-called Johannes fll. Dugaldi, more properly Duncani or Dungadi.

[] Mary de Ergadia Macdougall Mary de Ergadia Macdougall was the daughter of Ewen Macdougall, 3rd of Dunollie and of Lorn. She married, firstly, Magnus Olavson, King of Man. She married, secondly, Malise, 5th Earl of Strathearn, son of Robert, 4th Earl of Strathearn, in 1268 She married by contract, thirdly, Hugh Abernethy of that Ilk, son of Laurence de Abernethy and Devorgulle (?), on 5 April 1281. She married, fourthly, William FitzWarin before 10 April 1299. She died before 10 October 1303

[] Maria de Ergadia (died 1302) was a fourteenth-century Scottish noblewoman. She was Queen consort of Mann and the Isles and Countess of Strathearn. Multiple marriages Maria was a daughter of Eóghan Mac Dubhghaill, Lord of Argyll (died c.1268×1275), and thus a member of Clann Dubhghaill. She was married four times. Her successive husbands were: Magnús Óláfsson, King of Mann and the Isles (died 1265), Maol Íosa II, Earl of Strathearn (died 1271), Hugh, Lord of Abernethy (died 1291/1292), and William FitzWarin (died 1299). These unions appear to reveal the remarkable wide-ranging connections enjoyed by Clann Dubhghaill. Maria's father last appears on record in 1268, when he witnessed a charter of Maol Íosa. It is possible that this could have been about the time when Maria married him. Within the same year, Maol Íosa is recorded to have owed a debt of £62 to the Scottish Crown, a sum that could have been incurred as a result of the marriage. The Earls of Strathearn were not amongst the Scottish realm's most wealthy magnates, and it is likely that Maol Íosa's marriage to the widow of the King of Mann and the Isles contributed to his wealth and enhanced his prestige. Throughout much of her life, Maria bore the title Countess of Strathearn. Maria and her third husband, Hugh, had several children. One such child of her and Hugh was Alexander. After Hugh's death, Maria was summoned to appear before parliament to answer regarding Alexander's rights to various lands. In 1292, Maria was indebted to Nicholas de Meynell for 200 marks, part of the tocher of a daughter of hers. When Maria rendered homage to Edward I, King of England in 1296, she styled herself "la Reẏne de Man". In 1302, Maria died in London amongst her Clann Dubhghaill kin, and was buried along with William in London's Greyfriars church. An effigy of her second husband, and perhaps Maria herself, lies in Dunblane Cathedral.
