Elizabeth Muir (died before May 1355) was mistress and then wife of Robert, High Steward of Scotland, and Guardian of Scotland (1338–1341 and from October 1346), who later became King Robert II of Scotland.

Elizabeth Muir (Muir) was said to be born at Rowallan Castle. Her parents were Sir Adam Muir of Rowallan, Ayrshire and Janet Muir.

She initially became the Steward's mistress. He married her in 1336 but the marriage was criticised as uncanonical, so he remarried her in 1349 following a papal dispensation dated at Avignon 22 November 1347.

She died before her husband inherited the crown at the rather advanced age of 54, and he later re-married (Papal Dispensation dated 2 May 1355).

On 27 March 1371, "The Lord John (who later took the title of King Robert III, changing his name because of what he saw as John de Baliol's unpatriotic desecration of the name John), Earl of Carrick and Steward of Scotland, first-born son of King Robert II" was declared heir to the Crown by Parliament in Scone Abbey.

They had at least ten children, with some accounts saying as many as thirteen. Doubts about the validity of her marriage led to family disputes over her children's right to the crown. Many Authors state that Elizabeth Muir of Rowallan Castle, was the Queen of Scotland & is depicted in paintings as wearing a crown on her head (See Pg 68; A Palace fit for a Laird, Rowallan Castle, Archaelogy & Research 1998-2008). The name 'Muire' is the original name for the 'Virgin Mary' & this means that the Messiah was 'Muires' son', also meaning that Jesus Christ would come from this line & from the line of David as outlined in scriptures. Rowallan Castles' Hebrew inscription; "The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup, Psalms. XVI, Verse 5", matches up with the King James Bible. The King James Holy Bible reads as follows; "The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot."

The King James Bible also states that; "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be."
