    RESEARCH NOTES:
    943-954: King of Scots [Ref: Tapsell Dynasties p180] 943: King of Scots [Ref: Weis AR7 #170] King of Alba (Albany, modern Scotland north of the Forth & Clyde) [Ref: Moncreiffe RoyalAnc p20]

    king when his predecessor Constantine II abdicated and retired to a monastery [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]

    enjoyed friendly relations with English neighbors. [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]

    945: King Edmund of England granted Strathclyde to Malcolm, after ravaging it, and whatever agreement they entered into was renewed by Edmund's brother and successor, Eadred, in 946. The upshot of this agreement seems to have been cooperation with the English in wresting Northumbria from Viking rule [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]

    950: invaded Northumbria, Chronicles record a victory [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]

    952: invaded Northumbria again, when the allied forces of Scots, English, and Britons were defeated [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]

    954: killed by the men of Moray [Ref: Weis AR7 #170, Moncreiffe RoyalAnc p20]

    Malcolm I of Scotland
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Malcolm I (Máel Coluim mac Domnaill), the son of Donald II of Scotland, became the King of Scotland in 943 after his cousin King Constantine II of Scotland abdicated and became a monk.

    Malcolm I was a prince of great abilities and prudence, and Edmund I of England (939?946) courted his alliance by ceding Cumbria, then consisting of Cumberland and part of Westmorland, to him, in the year 945, on condition that he would defend that northern county, and become an ally of Edmund I. This, therefore, required Scotland to send military support if England was attacked by either the Danes of Northumbria or the Norwegians of Ireland. The alliance between England and Scotland remained after the death of both Kings.

    Edred of England, the brother and successor of Edmund I, accordingly applied for, and obtained, the aid of Malcolm I against Amlaíb Cuaran, King of Northumberland, whose country, according to the barbarous practice of the times, he wasted, and carried off the people with their cattle.

    Later, when Norsemen again invaded the land, the Scots sent raids led by Malcolm I in 949 and 951 against the English; moreover, in 954, Edred reunited the northern counties to his dominions.

    In this same year, after putting down an insurrection of the Moray-men under Cellach, their Maormor (chief), whom he killed, Malcolm I was slain at the site of Fetteresso Castle by one of these men, in revenge for the death of his chief. He was buried on the Isle of Iona. Alternative sites for his death have been given as Ulurn or Auldearn in Moray. There is another legend that the grave of Malcolm I was discovered at Fetteresso; the crypt discovered in 1822 was even given the name Malcolm's Mount, but the type of crypt is decidedly Bronze Age and hence could not be Malcolm I's.

    At some point in his life, he married. But as was the case with many monarchs in this period, the details are no longer known. A son from this marriage would later succeed to the throne as Kenneth II of Scotland (971?995).
