Malcolm III
Original name: Malcolm Ceann-Mor Malcolm III
Birth: 1031
Death: Nov. 13, 1093
Northumberland Unitary Authority
Northumberland, England

Scottish Monarch. The son of King Duncan I and Elflaed, he succeeded his father in 1058, and was crowned on April 25. He married Ingebiorg, widow of the Jarl of Orkney, in 1065. They had two sons and a daughter before her death in 1069. He then married Margaret of Scotland, daughter of Edward Atheling, in 1071. They had eight children, including future Scottish Kings Edgar, Alexander I, and David I. Much of Malcolm's reign was spent pursuing his claim to Northumbria. On his last raid on Northumbria in 1093, he and his son were killed in a treacherous ambush. During his reign, Scotland became more European and cosmopolitan in outlook, due in large part to the Hungarian-raised Queen Margaret. King Malcolm was succeeded by his son King Edgar. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
