    Pfafman: Crinan the Thane, hereditary lay abbot of Dunkeld and Governor of
    the Scots Island(s). Also called Albanach or Grimus and also titled Mormaer
    of Atholl.
    Roots: Crinan the Thane (also called Albanach or Grimus), born 978, died
    1045. Lay Abbott of Dunkeld, Governor of the Scots Islands. "1045. A battle
    between the Scots themselves, where fell Crinan abbot of Duncaillen." (Dunbar,
    Ritson, CP, and SP.)
    RC: Crinan the Thane (Albanock, Grimus), of the kin of St. Columba, Lord of
    the Isles, Governor of Scots Island, Earl of Strathclyde. Hereditary Abbot of
    Dunkeld.
    K: Crinan the Thane, King of Isles.
    Stewart: "Crinan was both a warrior and an abbot. From his apparently
    ecclesiastical position at the Abbey of Dunkeld, Crinan was also Mormaer of
    Atholl and led an unsuccessful armed insurrection against MacBeth" when he was
    killed in 1045 with 180 of his Atholl men. This was the only internal revolt of
    any significance that occurred during MacBeth's reign. Crinan made arrangements
    for the three sons of Duncan I, to be fostered outside the immediate circle
    of the court of Alba, not only for their own protection during the reign of
    MacBeth, but to train them as potential candidates for the High Kingship.

    married Bethoc or Beatrice, daught and heiress of Malcolm II, King of Scotland,
