Blair Castle, Blair Atholl near Pitlochry

Today’s topic isn’t about a city or other sights. Today’s topic are the scottish King’s and Queen’s. There is a lot more to tell to each single of them but for now I thought it would be nice for you to have a list of them.
I added a few nicknames for those king’s which are very creative at times and offer a good look at how those people reigned.

840 – 858: Kenneth I (mac Alpin)

858 – 862: Donald I

862 – 877: Constantin I

877 – 878: Aed

878 – 889: Eochaid

889 – 900: Donald II

900 – 943: Constantin II

943 – 954: Malcolm I

954 -962: Indulph

1005 – 1034: Malcolm II

1034 – 1040: Duncan I

1040 – 1057: Macbeth

1057 – 1058: Lulach

1058 – 1093: Malcolm III (‘Canmore’)

1094: Donald III

1094: Duncan II

1094 – 1097: Donald III (restored)

1097 – 1107: Edgar (‘The Peaceable’)

1107 – 1124: Alexander I (‘The Fierce’)

1124 – 1153: David I

1153 – 1165: Malcolm IV (‘The Maiden’)

1165 – 1214: William (‘The Lion’)

1214 – 1249: Alexander II

1249 – 1286: Alexander III

1286 – 1290: Margaret (‘The Maid of Norway’)

1292 – 1296: John Balliol (‘Toom Tabard’)

1306 – 1329: Robert I (‘Robert Bruce’)

1329 – 1371: David II

1371 – 1390: Robert II

1390 – 1406: Robert III

1406 – 1437: James I

1437 – 1460: James II

1460 – 1488: James III

1488 – 1513: James IV

1513 – 1542: James V

1542 – 1567: Mary (‘Queen of Scots’)

1567 – 1626: James VI (from 1603 James I of England)

Following those kings and queens there was a joined King for all of Britain. Which is why I would call this the easy list. Cause following James VI there have been further Stuart King’s like the Bonnie Prince Charlie but that’s another and way more complicated story. So we will stay with our scottish kings and queens for now and come back to the british kings and queens another time.
