    RESEARCH NOTES:
    843-858: King of the Picts and Scots [Ref: Weis AR7 #170] King of Picts and Scots [Ref: Moncreiffe RoyalAnc p20]

    843-858: King of Dalradia and Scots [Ref: Tapsell Dynasties p180] last King of Picts (Drust) ended reign in 848 [Ref: Tapsell Dynasties p179]

    839-840: seized the kingship of Dal Riata, and made a bid for the kingship of the Picts. Legends suggest he achieved this by trechery, slaying his Pictish guests at a feast. Whatever the means, Kenneth defeated his last Pictish rival by 848 [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]

    united both nations through his Piish royal blood [Ref: Moncreiffe RoyalAnc p20]

    849: celebrated his victory by building a church dedicated to St. Columba in his new Pictish lands [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]

    succeeded by his brother, Donald [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]

    In 789, the branch of the Cenel nGabrain represented by the descendants of Fergus Mac EOCHAID took control of the kingship of the Picts. For the next fifty years, with the exception of one three year period of joint kingship, they had a monopoly on its power. Since Fergus' descendants also had a claim to the kingship of Dal Riata, there are also several examples of individuals holding the two kingships subsequently or even simultaneously. The Pictish kingship was the gem of eighth and ninth century Scotland, and the success of the descendants of Fergus in holding it marginalized other branches of the Cenel nGabrain. It probably explains why the children and grandchildren of Aed Find are so obscure. It is probable that they would have disappeared from recorded history were it not for the disaster which befell the descendants of Fergus in 839 - The heathens (i.e. Vikings) won a battle against the men of Foirtriu, and Eoganan son of Eongus (the king of the Picts), Bran son of Oengus, Aed son of Boanta (the king of Dal Riata) and others almost innumerable fell there. Eoganan and Bran were grandsons of Fergus, and their death probably left the descendants of Fergus without a viable candidate to the kingship, leaving a power vacuum in Scotland. This presented a golden opportunity for other dynasties to assert their position, and the sons of Alpin were all to happy to seize the moment. [Ref: Michael Davidson SGM 10/23/1995-115700]
