king of ‘Scotland’ (971–95). His father was Malcolm I and his brother King Dub. He succeeded Cuilén to the kingship, but faced competition from Cuilén's brother Olaf, whom he killed in 977. He repeatedly raided northern England and attacked the Britons of Strathclyde, who defeated him at ‘Moin Uacornar’ (unidentified). His rule over Lothian was recognized c.975 by Edgar, king of England. He met his end at Fettercairn (30 miles south of Aberdeen), assassinated by the daughter of the earl of Angus in revenge for killing her only son.
