LEDGEN:  Ragnar Lodbrok or Lothbrok (Old Norse:  was a legendary Norse ruler, king, and hero from the Viking Age described in Old Norse poetry and several sagas. In this tradition, Ragnar was the scourge of France and England and the father of many renowned sons, including Ivar the Boneless, Bj?rn Ironside, Halfdan Ragnarsson, Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye, and Ubba. While these men are historical figures, it is uncertain whether Ragnar himself existed or really fathered them. Many of the tales about him appear to conflate the deeds of several historical Viking heroes and rulers. many acts ascribed to Ragnar in the Gesta can be associated, through other sources, with various figures, some of which are more historically certain. The movie "Vikings" with Kirt Douglas is based on the charcter Ragnar.



Eystein Glumra (the Clatterer), also called Eystein Ivarsson (born ca. 805 in Nord-Tr?ndelag, Norway) was Jarl (Earl) of Oppland and Hedmark in Norway. According to the Orkneyinga Saga, Eystein the noisy was the son of Ivar the Uplanders? earl, and grandson of Halfdan the Old. Although the Saga does mention a few Ivars, none are said to be Eystein's father. Heiti, Gorr?s son, was father of Svei?i the sea-king, the father of Halfdan the old, the father of Ivar the Uplanders? earl, the father of Eystein the noisy, the father of earl Rognvald the mighty and the wise in council.

  Rognvald Eysteinsson  (fl. 865) sometimes referred to with the bynames of "the Wise" or "the Powerful" was the jarl of M?re in Norway and a key figure in the founding of  the Earldom of Orkney. Three quite different sources for the creation of the Norse earldom on Orkney and Shetland exist. Spouse: Ragnhild 

The First Ruler and Conqueror of Normandy Rollo (c. 846 ? c. 932), known as Ganger-Hr?lf (or as G?ngu Hr?lfr in the Old

 Norse language),[1][2][3]and baptised Robert, was a Viking who became the first ruler of Normandy father of Adelaide of Aquitaine. After making himself independent of theNorwegian king Harald Fairhair, he sailed off to Scotland, Ireland, England and Flanders on pirating expeditions, and took part in raids along France 's Seine river.[4]  [5] Rollo won a reputation as a great leader of Viking rovers in Ireland and  Scotland HR?LFR; ROLLO the DANE; KONING der NOORMANNEN or KING of the NORTHMEN; Also called ROLF the WALKER because being so tall he preferred to go afoot rather than ride the little Norwegian horses; Originally a Norse Viking Chief, he was noted for strength and martial prowess; Baptized ROBERT. Son of Rognval Eysteinesson  Rollo or Rolf the Ganger, was a Viking raider chief.


  2nd Ruler of Normandy: William I Longsword, Duke Guillaume (French: Guillaume Longue-?p?e, Latin: Willermus Longa Spata, Old Norse:Vilhj?lmr

1027 until his death. Owing to uncertainty over the numbering of the Dukes of Normandy he is usually called Robert I, but sometimes Robert II with his ancestor Rollo as Robert I. He was the father of William the Conqueror who became in 1066 King of England and founded the House of Normandy.

Fergus Galloway, Lord of Galloway (1078-1161) married Princess Elizabeth Joan FitzRoy Beauclerc of England The lords of Galloway consisted of a dynasty of heirs who were lords (or kings) and ladies who ruled over Galloway in southwest Scotland, mainly during the High Middle Ages. Many regions of Scotland, including Galloway and Moray, periodically had kings or subkings, similar to those in Ireland during theMiddle Ages. The Scottish monarch was seen as being similar to a high king (Ard-Righ in Gaelic). The lords of Galloway would have either paid tribute to the Scottish monarch, or at other times ignored him. The Lords of Galloway are fairly well recorded in the 12th and 13th centuries, but the records are incomplete or conflicting at other times. Later on, the kings were known as "lords" at the Scottish court, and "kings" at home, finally becoming "lords" in both arenas. Fergus of Galloway took the throne of Galloway some time between 1110 and 1120. When he died in 1161 Fergus left Galloway to his two sons,Uchtred and Gille Brigte (Gilbert). In 1174 Uchtred died after being brutally blinded and mutilated by his brother Gille Brigte and Gille Brigte's son, M?el Coluim (Malcolm)

Gilbert mac Fergus, Lord of Galloway (died 1185), also known as Gillebrigte, Gille Brighde, Gilbridge, Gilbride, etc., and most famously known in French sources as Gilbert, was Lord of Galloway of Scotland (from 1161 with Uchtred; 1174 alone, to 1185). Gilla Brigte was one of two sons of the great Fergus, the builder of the "Kingdom" of Galloway. Gille Brigte's reign is characterized by a large degree of hostility towards the Scottish kings. Unlike his brother Uchtred, he was no friend to incoming Normans. He maintained a Gaelic following. Such a policy made him popular in the province, but alienated him from his nominal Franco-Gaelicoverlords

Earl of Fife

Duncan Donnchadh I Mac Gilvbert 1st Earl of Carrick DeGalloway  Donnchadh (Latin: Duncanus; English: Duncan) was a Gall-Gaidhil prince and Scottish magnate in what is now south-western Scotland, whose career stretched from the last quarter of the 12th century until his death in 1250,  He married the daughter of Alan fitz Walter, a leading member of the family later known as the House of Stewart?future monarchs of Scotland and England. Donnchadh was the first mormaer or earl of Carrick, a region he ruled for more than six decades, making him one of the longest serving magnates in medieval Scotland. His descendants include the Bruce and Stewart Kings of Scotland, and probably the Campbell Dukes of Argyll. Earl of Carrick or Mormaer of Carrick is the title applied to the ruler of Carrick (now southern Ayrshire), subsequently part of the Peerage of Scotland. The position came to be strongly associated with the Scottish crown when Robert the Bruce, who had inherited it from his maternal kin, became King of the Scots in the early 14th century. Since the 15th century the title of 'Earl of Carrick' has automatically been held by the heir to the throne, meaning Prince Charles is the current Earl. The earldom emerged in 1186, out of the old Lordship of Galloway

Avelina daughter of Alan Fitz Walter High Stewart of Scotland and a crusader, The title of High Steward or Great Steward was given in the 12th century to Walter Fitzalan, whose descendants became the House of Stewart. In 1371, the last High Steward inherited the throne, and thereafter the title of High Steward of Scotland has been held as a subsidiary title to that of Baron of Renfrew & Duke of Rothesay, held by the heir-apparent. Thus, currently, The Prince of Wales is High Steward of Scotland, sometimes known as the Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.

Niall mac Dhonnchad, 2nd Earl of Carrick (1202-1256) N?all of Carrick (also Neil) was the second man to bear the title Mormaer, or Earl, of Carrick. He was successor of mormaer Donnchadh of Carrick. He may have been Donnchadh's son, or else as suggested by one recent genealogical theory, his grandson. It has been argued that Niall's father wasNichol (Cailean or Colin), son of mormaer Donnchadh by the daughter of Niall Ruadh, briefly king of Tir Eoghain.[1]

N?all left no sons, and was succeeded by his daughter (Marjory The latter passed the mormaerdom on to her son Roibert a Briuis, who became King Robert I of Scotland. Margaret Stewart, Countess of Carrick (1216-1255)


Marjorie, Countess of Carrick "Marthok nic Niall" (1253-1292)  Countess of Carrick, Scotland, from 1256 to 1292, and is notable as the mother of Robert the Bruce. Her first husband was Adam of Kilconquhar, who died during the Eighth Crusade in 1271. Then, as the story goes, a handsome young man arrived one day to tell her of her husband's death in the Holy Land. He was Robert de Brus, 6th Lord of Annandale, and he had been a companion-in-arms of Adam of Kilconquhar. Marjorie was so taken with him that she had him held captive until he agreed to marry her at Turnberry Castle in 1271. He became Earl of Carrick jure uxoris(in right of his wife).


KING Robert I Bruce "The Bruce" of Scotland (1274-1329) was King of Scots from 1306 until his death in 1329. Robert was one of the most famous warriors of his generation, and eventually led Scotland during the first of the Wars of Scottish Independence against England. He fought successfully during his reign to regain Scotland's place as an independent nation and is today remembered in Scotland as a national hero. Robert de Bruce Of Scoto-Norman heritage, through his father he was a third-great grandson of David I, as well as claiming Richard (Strongbow) de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke, King of Leinster and Governor of Ireland, and William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke, regent of England, in addition to Henry I of England amongst his ancestors. He was portrayed (as a leper) by Ian Bannen in the 1995 film Braveheart. Braveheart inaccurately portrays Robert de Brus as being involved in the capture of William Wallace in Edinburgh; Robert de Brus died in 1304 and William Wallace was captured on 3 August 1305 by SirJohn de Menteith in Glasgow.

Arms of the Baronet of Auchinbreck

The Auchinbreck of Campbell family (also spelled Auchenbreck, Achnabreac, etc., from Scots Gaelic "Ach[adh] nam Breac" meaning either Field of the Trout or Speckled Field), was founded by Duncan Campbell of Kilmichael, in Glassary, Argyllshire, Scotland. He was the son of Duncan, first Lord Campbell of the Clan Campbell, by his second wife Margaret, daughter of Sir John Stewart of Blackhall, the illegitimate son of King Robert III of Scotland. The family of the Lords Campbell later became Dukes of Argyll, and remain chiefs of Clan Campbell. Duncan Campbell, as a grandson of King Robert III, received a considerable estate confirmed by royal charter dated 19 June 1452. The family remained at their estate of Auchinbreck, from which they took their title, until 1641. The Campbells of Auchinbreck were commissioned to provide military training and were used by the Earls of Argyll as military support. In 1628 the then head of the family of Campbells in Auchinbreck received a baronetcy, which included a grant of North American land in Nova Scotia.

(Gille Escoib or Gilleasbaig of Menstrie is the earliest member of the Campbell family to be attested in contemporary sources, appearing in royal charters dating to the 1260s. His existence is confirmed by later Campbell pedigrees. According to these genealogies, he was the son of a man named Dubhghall (?Dugald?). However, nothing is known of this man, nor of the 4 or 5 generations of his ancestors who constitute the probable historical section these genealogies preceding Dubhghall. The name Gilleasbaig is a modernization of ?Gilla Escoib? (with a variety of related spellings, such as Gille Escoib), and is often rendered as ?Archibald? in English or occasionally ?Gillespie? or Giilespic. Gilleasbaig?s first historical appearance dates to 1263, when he appeared in a charter of King Alexander III of Scotland, being named as ?Gilascoppe Cambell?. He was granted the estates of Menstrie and Sauchie in Clackmannanshire (but then under the supervision of the sheriff of Stirling). In 1266 he witnessed another royal charter at Stirling granting favours to Lindores Abbey.  Credit: Felicity Goodyear-Smith website))

Sir Colin Mor Campbell, Chief of Clan Campbell  "Colin "the Great" Campbell"  (1230-1294)

(Cailean?s mother was Afraig, a daughter of Cailean mac Donnchaidh, the brother of Niall, Earl of Carrick. This means that Cailean himself was the cousin of the future king, Robert I of Scotland, which explains why the Campbells were so attached to the Bruce cause during the Wars of Scottish Independence. Cailean himself took part in the Great Cause, and was one of the Bruce representative advocates to King Edward I of England in 1291. The Duke of Argyll is also the chief of the Scottish clan of Campbell and in this capacity is known as ?MacCailean Mor?, which is Gaelic, for ?Son of Colin the Great? referring to Cailean M?r of Lochawe (Colin of Lochow) who was killed in fighting with the Lord of Lorne in 1296. He was knighted in 1280. Cailean M?r (fully, Cailean M?r Caimbeul) or Sir Colin Campbell is one of the earliest attested members of Clan Campbell and an important ancestor figure of the later medieval Earls of Argyll. 

Cailean?s great fame lies in the fact that the later Earls and Dukes of Argyll claimed descent from him, and styled themselves ?Mac Cailein M?r?, son or descendant of ?Colin the Great?. Sir Colin Campbell of Lochow, sixth in descent from the first Gillespie, distinguished himself by his warlike actions, and was knighted by King Alexander the Third in 1280. He added largely to his estates, and on account of his great prowess he obtained the surname of Mohr or More (?great?); from him the chief of the Argyll family is in Gaelic styled Mac Chaillan More.

Sir Colin Campbell had a quarrel with a powerful neighbour of his, the Lord of Lorn, and after he had defeated him, pursuing the victory too eagerly, was slain (in 1294) at a place called the string of Cowal, where a great obelisk was erected over his grave. This is said to have occasioned bitter feuds betwixt the houses of Lochow and Lorn for a long period of years, which were put to an end to by the marriage of the daughter of the Celtic proprietor of Lorn, with John Stewart of Innermeath about 1386.  Credit: Felicity Goodyear-Smith website))

His services to the King elevated the Campbells into the higher ranks of the Scottish nobility. He was invested as a Knight circa 1289. In 1296 he joined Robert the Bruce in the struggle against the English. Robert the Bruce granted him, his wife Lady Mary Bruce and their son John, all of the lands of David de Strathbogie, 11th Earl of Atholl. He lived in Lochow, Argyllshire, Scotland.

Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340 ? 3 September 1420),  an illegitimate son of the future King Robert II of Scotland 

 and ofElizabeth Mure of Rowallan. He was legitimated in 1349 by his parents' marriage. Robert's grandfather was Walter Stewart, 6th High Steward of Scotland (1293?1326) and his father was the first monarch of the House of Stewart. His great-grandfather was Robert the Bruce (1274?1329), legendary victor of theBattle of Bannockburn.

 He was a member of the Scottish royal house, served as regent (at least partially) to three different Scottish monarchs (Robert II, Robert III, and James I). He also held the titles of Earl of Menteith (28 February 1361), Earl of Fife (1361; resigned in 1372), Earl of Buchan (1394; resigned in 1406) and Earl of Atholl (1403, for the duration of Robert III's life only), in addition to his 1398 creation as Duke of Albany. A ruthless politician, Albany was widely regarded as having caused the murder of his nephew, the Duke of Rothesay, and brother to the future King James I of Scotland. James was held in captivity in England for eighteen years, during which time Albany served as regent in Scotland, king in all but name. He died in 1420 and was succeeded by his son, Murdoch Stewart, Duke of Albany, who would be executed for treason when James returned to Scotland in 1425, almost causing the complete ruin of the Albany Stewarts.

Marjorie (Marcellina) Steward, 1st wife of Duncan "Na-Adh" Campbell,

Colin Campbell, 1st Earl of Argyll (c. 1433 ? 10 May 1493) was a Scottish nobleman 

He was the son of Gillespic (Archibald) Campbell, Master of Campbell and Elizabeth Somerville. Colin Campbell succeeded his grandfather Duncan Campbell, 1st Lord Campbell in 1453, and was created Earl of Argyll in 1457 and Lord Lorne in 1470, after the resignation of his wife's uncle Walter Stewart, 3rd Lord Lorne, who became Lord Innermeath.Campbell had supported King James II against the "Black Douglases", led by the 8th Earl of Douglas, and was given the earldom by King James III. James also gave him the position of Lord Chancellor of Scotland, but he eventually collaborated in the slaying of James III in 1484. In 1488 he became Lord Chancellor again, this time given by James IV of Scotland.

He is buried at Kilmun Parish Church.

Gillespie Archibald Campbell, 2nd Earl of Argyll (died 9 September 1513) was a Scottish nobleman and politician who was killed at the Battle of Flodden Archibald was the eldest son of Colin Campbell, 1st Earl of Argyll and Isabel Stewart, daughter of John Stewart, 2nd Lord Lorne.[1] He was made Master of the Royal Household of James IV of Scotland on 24 March 1495.[2] After a crisis of law and order in the west of Scotland, Argyll was made governor of Tarbert Castle and Baillie of Knapdale, and this was followed by an appointment as Royal Lieutenant in the former Lordship of the Isles on 22 April 1500.[3] Argyll eventually rose to the position of Lord High Chancellor of Scotland. His "clan" was rivalled only by Clan Gordon.The Earls of Argyll were hereditary Sheriffs of Lorne and Argyll. However, a draft record of the 1504 Parliament of Scotland records a move to request Argyll to hold his Sherriff Court at Perth, where the King and his council could more easily oversee proceedings, if the Earl was found at fault. The historian Norman Macdougall suggests this clause may have been provoked by Argyll's kinship with Torquil MacLeod and MacLean of Duart.[4] These western chiefs supported the suppressed Lordship of the Isles. The Earl of Argyll was killed at the Battle of Flodden on 9 September 1513, with the king and many others. He is buried at Kilmun Parish Church.  

Sir John Campbell (c. 1490 - 1 May 1546) ancestor of the Earls of Cawdor was a Scottish nobleman and the eponymous ancestor of the Campbells of Cawdor.John was the third son of the Archibald Campbell, 2nd Earl of Argyll and Elizabeth, a daughter of John Stewart, 1st Earl of Lennox. He married the daughter and heiress of Sir John Calder of Calder, in 1510, whom his father had kidnapped. He died on 1 May 1546, his wife Muriel surviving him dying in 1575.

In 1510, Muriel Calder, daughter of John Calder, 7th Thane of Calder, married Sir John Campbell, third son of the 2nd Earl of Argyll. From 1524 to 1546, Sir John Campbell of Calder lived at Calder (now Cawdor) Castle, until his death. After Muriel's death in 1573, the Thanedom was resigned in favour of her grandson, John Campbell. In the 17th century, Sir John Campbell of Calder sold Croy and disposed of Ferintosh to Lord Lovat, in order to buy the Isle of Islay. Islaywas held by the Campbells of Calder from 1612-1726 when it was bought by Daniel Campbell of Shawfield. Sir John Campbell, 8th of Calder, married Mary, eldest daughter of Lewis Pryce (or Pryse) of Gogerddan in Cardiganshire. Campbell of Cawdor died in 1777 and was succeeded by his son,Pryse Campbell of Calder, who was a MP for Cromartyshire and Nairnshire. His son, John, was made Lord Calder of Castlemartin in 1797. On his death in 1821, he was succeeded by his son, John Fredrick Campbell, 1st Earl of Cawdor.[1] From the 1st Earl of Cawdor descend the Earls of Cawdor. (Source: records of the Scottish Privy Council, 1613?1616)

The name "Cawdor" is the English pronunciation and spelling of the ancient and original Highland name of CALDER. In the early 19th century, Lord John Campbell of Calder was residing in England and changed the name of the castle, town and clan overnight so that it would match the Shakespearean designation (reference: Cawdor Historical Society).

Robert of Hesbaye, Robert II, also spelt Rodbert and Chrodobert (died about 807) was a Frankish nobleman who was count of Worms and of Rheingau and duke of Hesbaye around the year 800. He is the earliest known male-line ancestor of the French royal family called the Capetians (including the Valois and the Bourbons), and of other royal families which ruled in Portugal, Spain, and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.
 Robert I, was probably the son of Thuringbert of Worms and Rheingau and thus a grandson of Robert I, Duke of Neustria (c. 697?764). 



King Robert the Brus, 7th Lord of Annandale 

Robert de Brus, 6th Load of Annandale (July 1243 ? soon bef. 4 March 1304[1]), 6th Lord of Annandale (dominus vallis Anandie), jure uxoris Earl of Carrick[2] (1271?1292), Lord of Hartness,[3] Writtle and Hatfield Broad Oak(Wretele et Hatfeud Regis), was a cross-border lord,[4] and participant of the Second Barons' War, Ninth Crusade, Welsh Wars, and First War of Scottish Independence.

Of Scoto-Norman heritage, through his father he was a third-great grandson of David I, as well as claiming Richard (Strongbow) de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke, King of Leinster and Governor of Ireland, and William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke, regent of England, in addition to Henry I of England amongst his ancestors.

Robert de Brus, 5th Lord of Annandale(ca. 1210 ? 31 March or 3 May 1295[1]), was a feudal lord, Justice and Constable of Scotland and England, a Regent of Scotland, and acompetitor for the Scottish throne in 1290/92 in the Great Cause. His grandson Robert the Bruceeventually became King of Scots.

Isobel of Huntingdon (1199?1251), also known as Isobel the Scot, was the daughter of David of Scotland, 8th Earl of Huntingdon, grandson of David I of Scotland, and Matilda of Chester

She married Robert Bruce, 4th Lord of Annandale and through her came the claims firstly of her son in 1290 and later in the beginning of 14th century of her great-grandson Robert Bruce, 7th Lord of Annandale, to the Scottish throne.

David of Scotland (Medieval Gaelic: Dab?d) (c. 1144 ? 17 June 1219) was a Scottish prince and 8thEarl of Huntingdon. He was, until 1198, heir to the Scottish throne.
Henry of Scotland (Eanric mac Dab?d, 1114 ? 12 June 1152) was a prince of Scotland, heir to the Kingdom of Alba. He was also the 3rd Earl of Northumberland and the 3rd Earl of the Honour of Huntingdon and Northampton. He was the son of King David I of Scotland and Queen Maud, 2nd Countess of Huntingdon. His maternal grandparents were Waltheof, Earl of Northumbria and Huntingdon, (beheaded 1076) and his spouse Judith of Lens. Henry was named after his uncle, King Henry I of England, who had married his paternal aunt Edith of Scotland (the name Edith gallicised as Matilda after becoming Queen consort in 1100)
KING David I of Scotland David I or Dau?d mac Ma?l Choluim (Modern: Daibhidh I mac [Mhaoil] Chaluim;[1] 1083 x 1085 ? 24 May 1153) was a 12th-century ruler who was Prince of the Cumbrians (1113?1124) and later King of the Scots (1124?1153). The youngest son of M?el Coluim III (Malcolm III) and Margaret of Wessex, David spent most of his childhood in Scotland, but was exiled to England temporarily in 1093. Perhaps after 1100, he became a dependent at the court of King Henry I. There he was influenced by the Norman and Anglo-French culture of the court. He was probably the eighth son of King M?el Coluim mac Donnchada, and certainly the sixth and youngest produced by M?el Coluim's second marriage to Queen Margaret. He was the grandson of the ill fated King Duncan I.[3]  After the death of his former patron Henry I, David supported the claims of Henry's daughter and his own niece, the former Empress-consort,Matilda, to the 
KING Malcolm III of Scotland (Gaelic: M?el Coluim; c. 1031 - 13 November 1093) was King of Scots from 1058 to 1093. He was later nicknamed Canmore (ceann m?r) in Scottish Gaelic, "Great Chief". (Ceann = leader, "head" [of state]. M?r = pre-eminent, great, "big".) [1][2] Malcolm's long reign, lasting 35 years, preceded the beginning of the Scoto-Norman age. He is the historical equivalent of the character of the same name in Shakespeare's Macbeth. His daughter Edith/Matilda married King Henry I of England. Saint Margaret
KING Duncan I of Scotland Donnchad mac Crinain (Modern Gaelic: Donnchadh mac Cr?onain;[2] anglicised as Duncan I, and nicknamed An t-Ilgarach, "the Diseased" or "the Sick";[3] ca. 1001 ? 14 August 1040)[1] was king ofScotland (Alba) from 1034 to 1040. He is the historical basis of the "King Duncan" in Shakespeare's playMacbeth.
Cr?n?n of Dunkeld (died 1045) was the lay abbot of the monastery of Dunkeld, and perhaps the Mormaer of Atholl. Cr?n?n was progenitor of theHouse of Dunkeld, the dynasty which would rule Scotland until the later 13th century. He was the son-in-law of one king, and the father of another. Crin?n was married to Beth?c, daughter of M?el Coluim mac Cin?eda (Malcolm II) (King of Scots, who reigned from 1005 to 1034)

 father  King Malcolm II of Scotland(Gaelic: M?el Coluim; died 25 November 1034 ),[1]  was  King of the Scots from 1005 until his death.[2] He was a 

           son of King Kenneth II; the Prophecy of Berch?n says that his mother was a woman of Leinster and refers to him as Forranach, "the destroyer".[3] To the

           Irish annals which recorded his death,  Malcolm was ard r? Alban, High King of Scotland. In the same way that Brian B?ruma, High King of Ireland, was not 

           the only king in Ireland, Malcolm was one of several kings within the geographical  boundaries of modern Scotland: his fellow kings included the king of 

           Strathclyde, who ruled much of the south-west, various Norse-Gael kings on the western coast and the Hebrides and, nearest and most 

           dangerous rivals, the kings or Mormaers of Moray. To the south, in the Kingdom of England, the Earls of Bernicia and Northumbria, whose predecessors 

           as kings of Northumbria had once ruled most of southern Scotland , still controlled large parts of the southeast.[4]


grandfather     KING MALCOLM I OF SCOTLAND M?el Coluim mac Domnaill (anglicised Malcolm I) (c. 900?954) was king of Scots

                         (before 943 ? 954), becoming king when his cousin Causant?n mac ?eda abdicated to become a monk. He was the son of Domnall mac



g. grandfather            KING DONALD II OF SCOTLAND Domnall mac Causant?n (Modern Gaelic: D?mhnall mac Ch?iseim),[1] anglicised as

                                   Donald II (died 900) was King of the Picts or King of Scotland (Alba) in the late 9th century. He was the son ofConstantine I (Causant?n 

                                   mac Cin?eda). Donald is given the epithet D?sachtach, "the Madman", by the Prophecy of Berch?n  


 2g.grandfather                    CONSTINE I OF THE PICTS Causant?n or Constant?n mac Cin?eda (in Modern Gaelic, C?iseam mac Choinnich

                                             died 877) was aking of the Picts. He is often known as Constantine I in reference to his place in modern lists of kings of Scots, but  

                                             contemporary sources described Causant?n only as a Pictish king. A son of Cin?ed mac Ailp?n ("Kenneth MacAlpin"), he succeeded 

                                             his uncle Domnall mac Ailp?n as Pictish king following the latter's death on 13 April 862 . It is likely that Causant?n's (Constantine I) 

                                             reign witnessed increased activity by Vikings, based in Ireland, Northumbria and northern Britain. He died fighting one such invasion.

 3g.grandcather                               KING KENNETH MACALPIN Cin?ed mac Ailp?n (Modern Gaelic: Coinneach mac Ailpein),[1] commonly

                                                        anglicised as Kenneth MacAlpin and known in most modern regnal lists as Kenneth I (810 ? 13 February 858 ), was a king 

                                                        of the Picts who, according to national myth, was the first king of Scots. He was thus    later known by the posthumous 

                                                        nickname of An Ferbasach, "The Conqueror".[2] The dynasty that ruled Scotland for much of the medieval period claimed 

                                                        descent from him.

m.  Eleanor of Provence (c. 1223 ? 24/25 June 1291[1]) was Queen consort of England, as the spouse of King Henry III of England, from      1236 until his death in 1272. Dau of Ramon Berenguer IV, Count of Provence(1198?1245) and Beatrice of Savoy (1205?1267) Although she was completely devoted to her husband, and staunchly defended him against the rebelSimon de Montfort, 6th Earl of Leicester, she was very much hated by the Londoners. This was because she had brought a large number of relatives with her to England in her retinue; these were known as "the Savoyards", and they were given influential positions in the government and realm. On one occasion, Eleanor's barge was attacked by angry citizens who pelted her with stones, mud, pieces of paving, rotten eggs and vegetables. Eleanor was the mother of five children including the future King Edward I of England. She also was renowned for her cleverness, skill at writing poetry, and as a leader of fashion. (NOTE: The Berenguers were Counts of Provance for a number of generations.
gf  Ramon Berenguer IV or V (1198 ? 19 August 1245), Count of Provence and Forcalquier, was the son of Alfonso II of Provence and Garsenda de Sabran, heiress of Forcalquier.

2g-gm Queen Petronilla of Aragon (29 June[1]/11 August[2] 1136 ? 15 October 1173), whose name is also spelled Petronila orPetronella (Aragonese Peyronela or Payronella,[3] and Catalan: Peronella), was the Queen of Aragonfrom the abdication of her father in 1137 until her own abdication in 1164. She was the daughter and successor of Ramiro II by his queen, Agnes. She was the last ruling member of the Jim?nez dynasty in Aragon, and by marriage brought the throne to the House of Barcelona.
3g-gf  King Ramiro II of Aragon (24 April 1086 ? 16 August 1157), called the Monk, was King of Aragon from 1134 until withdrawing from public life in 1137 (although he used the royal title until his death). He was the youngest son of Sancho Ram?rez, King of Aragon and Navarre and Felicia of Roucy.
4g-gf  King Sancho Ram?rez (c. 1042 ? 4 June 1094) was King of Aragon (1063?1094, not formally until 1076) andKing of Navarre (from 1076, as Sancho V). He was the son of Ramiro I of Aragon and Ermesinda of Bigorre, and he succeeded his father in 1063.[1]
5g-gf King Ramiro I of Aragon (bef. 1007 ? 8 May 1063) was the first King of Aragon from 1035 until his death. Apparently born before 1007, he was the illegitimate son ofSancho III of Navarre by his mistress Sancha de Aybar.[1] Ramiro was reputed to have been adopted by his father's wife Mayor after he was the only of his father's children to come to her aid when needed, although there is no surviving record of these events and the story is probably apocryphal.
6g-gf King Sancho Garc?s III of Pamplona (Basque: Antso III.a Gartzez; c. 990 ? 18 October 1035), also known as Sancho III of Pamplona and nicknamed the Great, was King of Pamplona and Count of Aragon from 1004 until his death in 1035. He also ruled by marriage the counties of Castile, ?lava and Monz?n, which later expanded with the acquisition of the County of Cea in 1030 and the counties of Sobrarbe (1015) andRibagoza (1018). He would later intervene in the Kingdom of Le?n, taking the capital city.He was the eldest son of Garc?a S?nchez II and his wife Jimena Fern?ndez. KING Garc?a S?nchez II (Basque: Gartzea II.a Santxez; dead c. 1000), nicknamed the Tremulous, was King of Pamplona and Count of Aragon from 994 until his death c. 1000. He was the eldest son of Garc?a S?nchez I of Pamplona and Andregoto Gal?ndez of Aragon. KING Garc?a S?nchez I (Basque: Gartzea I.a Santxez; c. 919[a][2] ? 970[3][4]), also 

known as Garc?a I, was King of Pamplona from 925 until his death in 970. He was the second king of the Jim?nez dynasty, succeeding his father when he was merely six years old. Son of Sancho I and Toda Azn?rez KING Sancho Garc?s I (Basque: Antso Ia. Gartzez; c. 860 ? dead 925), also known as Sancho I, was King

Emperor Alfonso VII (1 March 1105 ? 21 August 1157), born Alfonso Raim?ndez, called the Emperor (el Emperador), became the King of Galicia in 1111[1] and King of Le?n and Castile in 1126. Alfonso first used the title Emperor of All Spain, alongside his mother Urraca, once his mother vested him with the direct rule of Toledo in 1116. Alfonso later held another investiture in 1135 in a grand ceremony reasserting his claims to the Imperial title. He was the son of Urraca of Le?n and Raymond of Burgundy, the first of the House of Burgundy to rule in the Iberian peninsula.
gm Empress Urraca (April 1079 ? 8 March 1126) was Queen of Le?n, Castile, and Galicia, and claimed the imperial title as suo jure Empress of All the Spains[1] from 1109 until her death in childbirth, as well as Empress of All Galicia.[2] Born in Burgos, Urraca was the eldest and only surviving child of Alfonso VI of Le?n with his second wifeConstance of Burgundy; for this, she was heiress presumptive of the Kingdoms of Castile and Le?n until 1107, when her father recognized his illegitimate son Sancho as his heir.
g-gf King Alfonso VI (before June 1040 ? 29 June/1 July 1109), nicknamed the Brave (El Bravo) or the Valiant, was King of Le?n from 1065, King of Castile and de facto King of Galicia from 1072.[1] After the conquest of Toledo in 1085 he was also the self-proclaimed victoriosissimo rege in Toleto, et in Hispania et Gallecia (most victorious king of Toledo, and of Spain and Galicia).[2] Alfonso was the second son of Ferdinand the Great and Sancha of Le?n, the daughter of Alfonso the Noble and sister to Bermudo III of Le?n.
2g-gf King Ferdinand I (c. 1015 ? 24 December[1] 1065), called the Great (el Magno), was the Count of Castilefrom his uncle's death in 1029 and the King of Le?n after defeating his brother-in-law in 1037. According to tradition, he was the first to have himself crowned Emperor of Spain (1056), and his heirs carried on the tradition. He was a younger son of Sancho III of Navarre and Mayor of Castile, and by his father's will recognised the supremacy of his eldest brother, Garc?a S?nchez III of Navarre. While Ferdinand inaugurated the rule of the Navarrese Jim?nez dynasty over western Spain, his rise to preeminence among the Christian rulers of the peninsula shifted the locus of power and culture westward after more than a century of Leonese decline. Nevertheless, "[t]he internal consolidation of the realm of Le?n?Castilla under Fernando el Magno and [his queen] Sancha (1037?1065) is a history that remains to be researched and written."[2] On 15 September 1054, Ferdinand defeated his elder brother Garc?a at the Battle of Atapuerca and reduced Navarre to a vassal state under his late brother's young son, Sancho Garc?a IV. Although Navarre at that time included the traditionally Castilian lands of ?lava and La Rioja, Ferdinand demanded the cession only of Bureba.[2] Over the next decade, he gradually extended his control over more of the western territory of Navarre at the expense of Sancho IV, although this was accomplished peacefully and is only detectable in the documentary record.[18]

King Alfonso V (994 ? 7 August 1028), called the Noble, was King of Le?n from 999 to 1028. Enough is known of him to justify the belief that he had some of the qualities of a soldier and a statesman. Like other kings of Le?n, he used the title emperor to assert his standing among the Christian rulers of Spain.[1] Alfonso was three years old when he succeeded his father, Bermudo II, in 999.[2] His mother Elvira Garc?a and count Menendo Gonz?lez, who raised him in Galicia,[3] acted as his co-regents. Upon the count's death in 1008, Alfonso ruled on his own.[4]

gf  King Bermudo (or Vermudo) II (c. 953 ? September 999), called the Gouty (Spanish: el Gotoso), was first a rival king in Galicia (982?984) and then king of the entire Kingdom of Le?n (984?999). His reign is summed up by Justo P?rez de Urbel's description of him as "the poor king tormented in life by the sword of Almanzor and in death by the vengeful pen of a bishop," Pelagius of Oviedo (died 1153), half of whoseChronicon covers the reign of Bermudo and is highly critical of the king.[1] He accuses Bermudo of imprisoning Bishop Gudesteus of Oviedo in the 990s and blames the attacks of Almanzor on Bermudo's sins.[2] In 982 the Galician nobility proclaimed Bermudo, a son of former king Ordo?o (probably Ordo?o III), as king in opposition to his cousin Ramiro III

m. Queen Elvira Garc?a (978-1017) (+) See her ancestors below:

g-gf King Ordo?o III (c. 926?956) was the King of Le?n from 951 to 956, son and successor of Ramiro II (931?951). He confronted Navarre and Castile, who supported his half-brother Sancho the Fat in disputing Ordo?o's claim to the throne. He also had to deal with internal rebellion, attacks from the Muslims of al-Andalus, and the rebellion ofGalicia. In response to the Muslims, Ordo?o III led a raid as far as Lisbon (955), coming back north with a very lucrative loot.[1] Faced with this great show of force, Abd-al-Rahman III (912?961) was pushed to negotiate and conclude a peace treaty with the king of Le?n.
2g-gf King Ramiro II (c. 900 ? 1 January 951), son of Ordo?o II, was a King of Le?n from 931 until his death. Initially titular king only of a lesser part of the kingdom, he gained the crown of Le?n (and with it, Galicia) after supplanting his brother Alfonso IV and cousin Alfonso Fr?ilaz in 931. The scant Anales castellanos primeros are a primary source for his reign.
3g-gf King Ordo?o II (c. 873 ? June 924, Le?n) was a king of Galicia from 910, and king of Galicia and Le?n from 914 until his death. He was an energetic and feisty ruler who submitted only the territories of the kingdom of Leon under his control and fought successfully against the Muslims, who still dominated most of theIberian Peninsula. His reign marked the tactical and smooth transition of the regnum Asturum to theregnum Legionis, with the royal headquarters already established in the city of Le?n. Born around 873, he was the second son of King Alfonso III the Great, king of Asturias and his wife, Queen Jimena.
4g-gf King Alfonso III (c. 848 ? December 910), called the Great, was the king of Le?n, Galicia and Asturias from 866 until his death. He was the son and successor of Ordo?o I. In later sources he is the earliest to be called "Emperor of Spain." He was also titled "Prince of all Galicia" (Princeps totius Galletiae[1]). Little is known about Alfonso except the bare facts of his reign and of his comparative success in consolidating the kingdom during the weakness of the Umayyad princes of C?rdoba. He fought against and gained numerous victories over the Muslims of al-Andalus.
5g-gf  King Ordo?o I (c. 821 ? 27 May 866) was King of Asturias from 850 until his death. King Ramiro I (c. 790 ? 1 February 850) was King of Asturias from 842 until his death. He was son of KingBermudo I, and became king after a struggle for succession that followed the death of Alfonso II without issue. He was a contemporary of Abd ar-Rahman II, Umayyad Emir of C?rdoba. During his turbulent reign, the chronicles relate that he had to fend off attacks from both Vikings and Moors. Numerous important structures, such as his recreational palace Santa Mar?a del Naranco, were built during his reign in the estilo ramirense that prefigured Romanesque architecture. Nepocian, comes palatii and the late king's son-in-law, challenged Ramiro's succession in his absence, being supported by Astures and Vascones who had been loyal to Alfonso II. Ramiro sought support in Galicia, where he formed an army and advanced toward Oviedo.[2] Nepotian awaited Ramiro's advance at Cornellana, by the river Narcea where either Ramiro defeated him in the Battle of the Bridge of Cornellana[2] or Nepotian's troops fled without putting up a fight.[citation needed] Nepotian fled. He was pursued and captured by Counts Scipion and Sonna. After his capture, Nepotian was blinded and interned in a monastery.

Queen Elvira Garc?a (c. 978?1017), daughter of Garc?a Fern?ndez, count of Castile, and his wife Ava of Ribagorza, Queen Consort of Leon as the wife of King Bermudo II, and co-regent, after her husband's death, jointly with Count Menendo Gonz?lez, during the minority of her son InfanteW Alfonso, future KingAlfonso V.

Garc?a Fern?ndez, called of the White Hands (Spanish: ?l de las Manos Blancas) (Burgos, 938 ?C?rdoba, 995), was the count of Castile and Alava from 970 to 995. In May 995, he was captured by a raiding party while out hunting.[1] Wounded in the encounter, he was sent to Cordoba as a trophy, but died at Medinaceli in June 995.[1]
Fern?n Gonz?lez (died 970) was the first autonomous count of Castile, son of Gonzalo Fern?ndez de Burgos, who had been named count of Arlanza and the Duero around the year 900, and by tradition a descendant of semi-legendary judge Nu?o Rasura. His mother Muniadona was so well remembered that the later Counts of Castile would sometimes be recorded by Iberian Muslim scholars as Ibn Māma Duna(descendant of Muniadona).
