Giric, King of Scots
Birth: unknown
Death: 889

Scottish Monarch. Giric, along with his cousin, Eochaid, assumed the throne when Eochaid killed King Aed. The two ruled jointly, as Eochaid, because he was a MacAlpin descendent through female lines, had no rightful claim to rule on his own. There is evidence to suggest that the partnership was not a harmonious one. Giric and Eochaid ruled for 12 years, from 878 - 889. The two were deposed and Giric killed at Dundurn by the rightful heir, Donald II. The fate of Eochaid is unknown. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
