Also called Malcolm Canmore, founder of the dynasty that consolidated royal
power in the Scottish kingdom. Malcolm lived in exile in England during part
of the reign of his father's murderer, Macbeth. Malcolm killed Macbeth in
battle in 1057 and then ascended the throne. After the conquest of England by
William the Conqueror in 1066 Malcolm gave refuge to the Anglo-Saxon prince
Edgar the Aetheling and his sisters, one of whom, Margaret (later St.
Margaret), became his second wife. Malcolm acknowledged the overlordship of
William in 1072 but nevertheless violated his feudal obligations and made five
raids into England. During the last of these invasions he was killed by the
forces of King William II Rufus. Except for a brief interval after Malcolm's
death, the Scottish throne remained in his family until the death of Queen
Margaret, the Maid of Norway, in 1290. Of Malcolm's six sons three succeeded
to the throne: Edgar (1097-1107), Alexander I (1107-1124), and David I
