    2nd son.
    King Donald VI Ban of the Scots.
    Domnall's fate is not entirely clear. William of Malmesbury tells us that he was "slain by the craftiness of David ... and by the strength of William [Rufus]". The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle says of Domnall that he was expelled, while the Annals of Tigernach have him blinded by his brother. John of Fordun, following the king-lists, writes that Domnall was "blinded, and doomed to eternal imprisonment" by Edgar. The place of his imprisonment was said to be Rescobie, by Forfar, in Angus.
    The sources differ as to whether Domnall was first buried at Dunfermline Abbey or Dunkeld Cathedral, but agree that his remains were later moved to Iona.
    The claims of John II Comyn, Lord of Badenoch to the crown in the Great Cause came from Domnall through Bethóc and Hextilda. Ladhmann son of Domnall, "grandson of the King of Scots", who died in 1116 might have been a son of Domnall.
