Malcolm succeeded to the crown when his cousin Constantine II entered a monastary (943). He annexed Moray to the kingdom for the first time. After driving the Danes from York, the English king Edmund turned Cumria over to Malcolm, apparently as a fief or seal of alliance. Later, when Norsemen again invaded the land, the Scots sent raids against the English, and in 954 the West Saxon king Eadred reunited the northern counties to his dominions. Malcolm was slain the same year.
