  • Notes 
    • Mael Coluim mac Donnchada. Oxford Companion to British History: "Canmore" [great head or chief]. King of Scotland 1057/8-1093. After the murder of his father Duncan by Macbeth, found refuge in England and was backed by Siward, Earl of Northumbria (q.v.) who led an army into Scotland in 1054 and defeated Macbeth at the battle of Dunsinnan. Malcolm defeated and killed Macbeth at Lumphanan, 15 August 1057. Lulach, Macbeth's stepson and cousin, became king. After 18 weeks, Lulach was killed "by treachery" by Malcolm at Essie, and Malcolm became King. Malcolm's kingship was only secure after he defeated Lulach's son Mael Snechta, King of Moray, in 1078. The Anglo-Saxon royal family fled to Scotland in 1070, and Malcolm's first wife having died, he took Edgar Atheling's sister Margaret as his wife. He raided Northumbria repeatedly, despite having pledged fealty to William in 1072.
