Scottish Monarch. The son of Bethoc (Beatrix), daughter of Malcolm II, and Crinan, Earl of Atholl. Succeeded his grandfather in 1034, ruling for 6 years. He married Aelflaed of Northumbria in 1030. He was killed in battle at Bathnagowan against MacBeth, Earl of Moray. Regarded as a ruthless and incapable king, his death was unmourned. His son was an infant, leaving the throne vacant for MacBeth.
