  4. dau., Princess of Scotland b.abt.842

NOTES: The unification of Scotland began when Kenneth succeeded his father in 843 when he became both the king of Scotland and the king of the Picts. 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. Kenneth was a notable warrior who 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 until the 11th century. Kenneth died probably of a tumor.

NOTES: Kenneth in 973 acknowledged King Edgar of England as his lord in return for recognition that the Scots now held Lothian, which they had seized from the Angles. In about 994, however, he broke his promise to keep the peace and invaded England. He was defeated, and lost Lothian again. He killed Culen's [king in Scotland prior to himself] brother in 977 and was himself killed in 995 in a blood feud at Fettercairn, Kincardineshire, by Culen's son, Constanine, who then made himself king of Scotland.
