Treaty of Newcastle (1244)

The Treaty of Newcastle was a treaty signed between King Henry III of England and King Alexander II of Scotland on 14 August 1244.[1]

The armies of England and Scotland were en route to engage in combat after disputes concerning the exact position of the border could not be resolved.[2] After the two opposing armies met near Newcastle Upon Tyne the hostilities were cast aside and a treaty signed which set the border between Scotland and England.[1]

The treaty was sealed by the arrangement of the future marriage of Henry III’s daughter, Margaret to Alexander II’s son, Alexander.[3]
