    Notes 
    • NAME: Kenneth II King Of /SCOTLAND/

      From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996.

      !Colonial and Revolutionary Lineages of America (973 D2ah) Vol. 2 King of Scotland, was killed by Fenella, whose son he had put to death. He began his reign in 971. After the death of his father the succession went to a son of Constantine II, Indulf, who reigned from 954 to 960. It then went to Duff, who was a son of Malcolm I and reigned until 967. The next king was Culen, who was a son of Indulf and reigned from 967 to 971, when Kenneth II succeeded.

      Kenneth II continued the war with the Britons of Strathclyde which had been in progress under his predecessors and engaged in raids on Northumbria. It is believed that the "Pictish Chronicle", which, with that of fordoun, is the oldest source of Scottish history, was composed during his reign. His relation with Eadgar, King of Wessex, was disputed, some English sources claiming that h and other leaders of the Scotch and Welsh rowed Eadgar on the River Dee as a sign of homage. A statement that he came to London and received Lothian on condition of rendering homage is believed to be an invention to conceal the conquest of that region by his son Malcolm II. During the reign of Kenneth II the chief trend was the consolidation of the central districts of the country from the Forth and Clyde to the Mounth.
