Scottish Monarch. Known as Donald Bane or Donald the White, he was the son of Duncan I and Elflaed. When he acceded he was a relatively old man. A traditionalist, he did not like the English influence which had become a feature of the reign of his older brother Malcolm Canmore. Donald reigned breifly before being deposed by Duncan II, Malcolm Canmore's son. Donald killed Duncan, and resumed his throne six months later. However, Malcolm Canmore's other sons accepted English assistance and defeated Donald, imprisoning him. Donald died at Rescobie at the age of 66, and was the last of the Scottish kings to be buried at the holy island of Iona.
