Malcolm II of Alba, King of SCOTLAND [Parents] [scrapbook] 1, 2 was born 3 about 954 in Scotland, United Kingdom. He died 4 on 25 Nov 1034 in Glamis Castle, Angus, Forfarshire, Scotland, United Kingdom. He was buried in Isle of Iona, Argyllshire, Scotland, United Kingdom.

Conquered Lothian 1018. King of Alba, King of Strathclyde. Said to have married an Irishwoman from Ossory. Killed by his kinsman.

Malcolm, son of Kenneth II, took advantage of the fact that the English were preoccupied with Danish raids and marched south, winning the Battle of Carham against the Angles in 1018 and thereby regaining Lothian. Thirteen years later, however, King Canute invaded Scotland, probably because Malcolm had been making alliances with the Danes, and forced the Scottish king to submit to him (submission was a traditional expression of personal homage). However, Canute seems to have recognised Malcolm's possession of Lothian. In the west, Malcolm had the alliance of Strathclyde, whilst the marriage of his daughter to Sigurd the Stout, Norse Earl of Orkney, extended Malcolm's influence to the far north. Malcolm died at Glamis, Angus on 25 November 1034, aged at least 80.

After Malcolm II's reign, Scottish succession was based on the principle of direct descent. (Previously, succession was determined by tanistry - during a king's lifetime an heir was chosen and known as tanaiste rig - 'second to the king'.

He killed Culen's brother in 977 and was himself killed in 995 in a blood feud at Fettercairn, Kincardineshire by Culen's son, Constantine.

CONSTANTINE II (r. 900-43)

He ruled for over 40 years, repelling Norse raids and launching a series of invasions of Northumbria. In an attempt to establish a more stable relationship with the Norsemen of Ireland, Constantine married his daughter to Olaf III Guthfrithsson in the 930s. This dynastic marriage may have also had the intention of checking the advance of Wessex in northern England - if so, it failed. Constantine was finally defeated in 937 by the Anglo-Saxon king Athelstan at the Battle of Brunanburh, where his eldest son was killed. He abdicated in 943, entered a Culdee monastery in St Andrews, Fife and died in 952.

KENNETH I (r. 843-58)

Kenneth, son of Alpin, King of Scotia succeeded his father in 843. He defeated the Picts about 843, uniting them with the Scots in the new kingdom of Alba, which comprised a large part of present day Scotland. Sources for the period disagree about the exact date of his victory, but Kenneth features as a notable warrior who reputedly invaded Northumbria six times and fought off attacks by the Britons of Strathclyde as well as by the Norsemen. Using dynastic marriage to solve the problem, Kenneth married his daughter to Rhun, the Strathclyde king. Because of the Norse threat to Iona, the burial place of St Columba (an Irish Scot who brought Christianity to Alba), he removed the saint's relics to a new church which he founded in Pictland at Dunkeld, Perthshire. However, Iona continued to be the burial place of Scottish kings even after St Columba's relics were moved, until the eleventh century. Kenneth died in 858 at Forteviot, near Perth, probably of a tumour.
