was responsible for the imprisonment of the young James V, during which he virtually ruled Scotland. James V escaped his captor in 1528 and Archibald was forced to flee to England in exile. King James V's hatred for the Douglases extended to Archibald's sister, Lady Janet Douglas of Glamis. Under the King's orders, Lady Glamis was accused of witchcraft and treason and was burned at the stake in 1537.
Archibald remained in England until 1543 when he returned with a group of pro-English nobles during the minority of Queen Mary. Archibald's pro-England stance was soon changed by the atrocities committed by Henry VIII during the "Rough Wooing". By 1545 he was in arms against the English and led a Scottish force to victory at the battle of Ancrum Moor. He was also present at the battle of Pinkie in 1547. He died in 1556.
