William Arthur was appointed Regius Keeper of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and King's Botanist at Edinburgh in 1715, through his political connections, despite having no botanical qualifications. Shortly afterwards he was deeply implicated in the First Jacobite rising, though there is still no agreement on whether this was fair. He fled to Italy, where he died the following year "from a surfeit of figs."
