In August 1600 the King and a large retinue came to Perth, saying that he had been invited there by the Earl's brother, Alexander. A scuffle took place in which the two brothers were killed. Three scenarios have been put forward to explain the events: 1. that Gowrie and his brother, Alexander Ruthven, concocted a plot to murder or - more probably to kidnap - King James VI, and that they lured him to Gowrie House for this purpose; 2. that James paid a surprise visit to Gowrie House with the intention, which he carried out, of killing the two Ruthvens; 3. that the tragedy was the outcome of an unpremeditated brawl following high words between the King and Gowrie, and/or his brother.
