While Infanta Alicia is certainly the senior representative of David I of Scotland, and as
such representative of the ancient Scottish dynasty, she is the representative of Edward
the Confessor, through his father, only because we do not know what happened to the
possible senior descendants (and will probably never know; they have never been traced).
David I was the youngest son of his parents, Malcolm III (d. 1093) and his wife
Margaret.  Descendants of one of the older sons are traceable to at least the mid-14th
century, but drop below the radar.  David I, and his descendants, are the senior *known*
representatives of Malcolm and Margaret.

Similarly, Margaret was a daughter of Edward Aetheling (d. 1057) and Agatha, and
Margaret had a brother, Edgar, who had two daughters.  The descendants of one daughter
of Edgar can be traced to the end of the 13
daughter of Edgar appears to have married in southern France, but this marriage has not
been sufficiently proved.  The woman in southern France has descendants traceable to the
present day, and if she is conclusively shown to be the daughter of Edgar then Edward
Aetheling's senior representative would have to be traced there; but at present Margaret is
the senior *known* representative of Edward Aetheling.

Edward Aetheling was the only son of King Edmund Ironside (d. 1016), who was an
older half-brother of Edward the Confessor, which means that Edward Aetheling was the
senior representative of King Ethelred the Unready (d. 1016), father of both Edmund
Ironside and Edward the Confessor.

 Infanta Alicia may or may not be the senior representative of the father of Edward the
Confessor, but she is currently the senior *known* representative of the father of Edward
the Confessor.
