Our History

Dark Ages of Scotland

In the early middle ages, the situation in what is now Scotland was chaotic. Borders were uncertain and subject to constant change. However, in general, Scotland consisted of four separate kingdoms or tribal areas:· Dalriada inhabited by Scots· Strathclyde inhabited by Britons· Pictish Territory inhabited by Picts· Northumbria inhabited by Angles·The early Scottish kings did not rule over the nation known today as Scotland and were referred to as King of Scots or King of Dalriada; i.e., King of the Scottish people living in Dalriada. Scottish and Pictish families began intermarrying in the 8th century; and their territories were often ruled by the same king.The monarchy of Scotland evolved from this union, known as the Kingdom of Alba with the rulers referred to as King of Alba. By the late 9th century, the Kingdom of Alba began absorbing the kingdoms of the Britons and Angles. Thus, through intermarriage and conquest, the Scottish Kings of Dalriada emerged as the overall Kings of Scotland. The arms of the Kings of Scotland are described as “Or, a lion rampant gules armed and langued, azure within a double treasure flory and counterflory of the second” which means “a gold shield with a red lion, his forepaws in the air and his tongue and claws blue, with a double red border with fleur-de-lis.”The Scots of Dalriada claimed a legendary antiquity beginning with Gaythelos, son of a King of Greece who went to Egypt during the time of Moses where he married the eponymous Scoti, daughter of the Pharaoh. Gaythelos, Scoti, and their family emigrated to Spain and eventually several groups of their descendants emigrated to Ireland; the final group under Simon Brek, whose grandson led a colony from Ireland to northern Britain and named it “Scotia”. In the year 330 BC, these Scots elected as their king Fergus, son of Ferehard; and they remained in Scotland until 360 AD when they were driven back to Ireland by the Picts and Britons. In the 5th century, they returned to Scotia under the leadership of Fergus, son of Erc. Or so the story goes.History knows nothing of the Scots earlier than about 500 AD, but at this point, the name of Fergus MorMacErc (Fergus, son of Erc) emerges from the mists of legend as the King of Scots in Dalriada. Thus, it is with Fergus that we will begin this genealogical record.

Kings of Dalriada

In early medieval Scotland, under the custom of tanistry, it was the eldest and/or ablest male of the royal house, and not the heir of line, that inherited the throne. This meant that any energetic male connected with the royal line could assert a claim to the throne. The following is a genealogical record and not a true list of the Kings of Dalriada.

Generation One

Ercc, King of Dal Riata in North Western Ireland. Died in 474. Ercc is said to be a son of Eochaid Muinremur, King of Dal Riata; and is said to have had several sons including Loarn and Fergus.

Generation Two

Fergus, King of Dalriada. Died circa 501. Fergus established the Irish kingdon of Dalraida in what is now Argyle, Scotland. He is thought to have ruled for about three years in succession to his brother Loarn.

Generation Three

Domangart, King of Dalriada. Died circa 506, married Feldelm Foltchain, said to be a daughter of Brion, son of Eochaid Mugmedon. Brion was a half-brother of Niall of the Nine Hostages, a High King of Ireland in the 5th century.

Gruoch was Shakespeare’s “Lady Macbeth.”Kenneth II, mentioned next.

Generation Nineteen

Malcolm II, King of Alba. Malcolm acceded on March 25, 1005. He formed an alliance with King Owen the Bald of Strathclyde, and with Owen’s help he regained Lothian in 1018. Malcolm didn’t have any sons; and to ensure the succession of his grandson Duncan, he killed all the sons of his cousin Kenneth III who had been King of Alba 997 – 1005. He died on November 25, 1034 at Glamis Castle, Angus and was interred at the Isle of Iona, Scotland Malcolm married an Irishwoman from Ossory, and they had the following daughters:· Dovada who married Finlay, Mormær (Earl or Thane) of Moray.

(See Generation Twenty-two)

Generation Twenty

Generation Twenty-one

Duncan I “the Gracious”, King of Scotland Duncan was born circa 1001 and he acceded on November 25, 1034. He added Strathclyde to the kingdom, and is thus considered to be the first king of a united Scotland. His reign, however, was a period of disastrous wars and internal strife; and ended on August 14, 1040 when he was defeated and killed in battle at Bothganowan, Elgin by Macbeth, Mormær of Ross and Moray who then became king. Duncan’s remains were interred at the Isle of Iona, Scotland. Despite Shakespeare’s depiction to the contrary, Macbeth was an honest monarch who was generous to the church; and as a grandson of Malcolm II, had as legitimate a claim to the throne as did Duncan. As well, Macbeth’s wife Gruoch was a greatX2 granddaughter of Malcolm I. Duncan’s wife, on the other hand, was a cousin of Siward, the Viking Earl of Northumbria; which helps explain why Siward assisted Duncan’s sons in defeating Macbeth. In all fairness, it should be borne in mind that Shakespeare based his work on Raphael Holinshed’s Chronicles and that he did not intend Macbeth to be an historical documentary, but rather an entertaining play.Duncan married circa 1030 to Ælflaed (Sybil), a cousin of Siward, Earl of Northumbria and they had the following children:· Malcolm III Cænnmor, mentioned next.· Donald Bane who was King of Scotland (1093 – 1097) along with his nephew Edmund.

Malcolm defeated and killed MacBeth in 1057, but Lulach, Lady MacBeth’s son by her first marriage, ruled for a few months before Malcolm killed him, too. During Malcolm’s reign the Norman Conquest of England occurred, and feudal society began to migrate northwards into Scotland. Malcolm married first about 1066 to Ingibiorg, a daughter of Jarl Finn Arnason and widow of Thorfinn, Earl of Caithness. (See Generation Nineteen) and they had the following children:· Duncan (II) who deposed Donald Bane briefly and was King of Scotland May – November 1094· Malcolm· DonaldMalcolm married second in 1068 at Dunfermline Abbey, Fife, Scotland to St. Margaret the Exile who was descended from the Saxon Kings of Wessex andEngland including Ælfred the Great.

Stories, television programmes and movies suggest that this son of the Earl of Huntingdon became the legendary outlaw Robin Hood. (For his equally legendary girlfriend Maid Marian see Fitzwalter, Generation Three) This story seems to have its origin in a rare play: “The Downfall of Robert, Earl of Huntingdon, afterwards called Robin Hood of merrie Sherwoode; with his love to chaste Matilda, the Lord Fitz-Walter’s daughter, afterwards his fair Maid Marian.” Black letter, 1601 4to. See Richard Thomson: An Historical Essay on the Magna Charta,London, 1829, pages 505 – 507 for further details.· Margaret who married in 1209 to Alan, Lord of Galloway who died in 1234.

The Bruces saw in the invasion of Ireland a chance to weaken the English, free the Irish people, and give Edward a kingdom. In May 1315 Edward Bruce landed in Ireland with 6000 men and a year later he was crowned “King of Ireland”. However, there was neither unity nor stability among the Irish. Some joined the Scots, but many more simply took advantage of the general disorder to settle old scores. Finally, in October 1318, excommunicated by the Pope, ill-supported or deserted by his Irish allies and with his own forces depleted, Edward Bruce was overthrown and killed.· Maud Bruce who married Hugh, 4th Earl of Ross and they had the following children:William, 5th Earl of RossMarjorie Ross who married Malise, 8th Earl of Strathearn.

They had no issue; this being perhaps the reason why this second marriage is not mentioned in some genealogies.
