Dubh, King of Scots
Birth: 930
Death: 966

Scottish Monarch. Also known as Duff or Duffus, Dubh means "the Black." Son of Malcolm I, he acceded in 971, reigning for only four and a half years. His reign was beset by trouble in the form of Cuilean, son of King Indulf, fighting to gain the throne. Dubh defeated Cuilean in battle at Duncrab, but Cuilean wasn't dissuaded. While in Forres attempting to raise an army to fight Cuilean once again, Dubh was murdered. His body was hidden beneath the bridge spanning the Kinlosse. Legend says the sun did not shine until the king's body was found and given proper burial. Cuilean took the throne. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
