    • !Burke's Peerage 99th Ed (#942 D22bup prefix pp. 285-6); Dict of Nat'l Biog (#920.042 D561n Vol. 15 p. 208); A Vindication of MacBeth (#929.2706 M288c p. 14); Also searched without positive results: Encyclopedia Britannica, Scots Peerage, The Complete Peerage, Royal Daugthers of Engl, and Queens of Scotland and English Princes.

      !Colonial and Revolutionary Lineages of America (973 D2ah) Vol. 2 died while attempting to reduce highland robber tribes. He is described as Donald VI of Scotland in the "Dictionary of National Biography", but this includes early Kings of Dalriada, who ruled there prior to the union of the Picts and Scots under Kenneth I. Dunbar, in his "Scotch Kings", seems more logical in describing him as Donald II, the first Donald being a brother of Kenneth I. The reign of Donald, lasting from 889 to 900, was a perid in which the Danes began to attempt settlements instead of ravaging the coasts. Chronicles and annals which treat early Scottish history give little regarding his reign.
