Notes
General:
The first to reign over an extent of land roughly corresponding to much of
modern Scotland.
Malcolm succeeded to the throne after killing his predecessor, Kenneth III,
and allegedly secured his territory by defeating a Northumbrian army at the
battle of Carham (c. 1016); he not only confirmed the Scottish hold over the
land between the rivers Forth and Tweed but also secured Strathclyde about the
same time. Eager to secure the royal succession for his daughter's son,
Duncan, he tried to eliminate possible rival claimants; but Macbeth, with
royal connections to both Kenneth II and Kenneth III, survived to challenge
the sucession.
