David I


David I or Dabíd mac Maíl Choluim (Modern: Daibhidh I mac [Mhaoil] Chaluim;[1] b. 1083×1085, d. May 24, 1153) was a 12th century ruler who was in succession Prince of the Cumbrians (x 1113-1124) and King of Scots (1124-1153). The youngest son of Máel Coluim mac Donnchada and Margaret, David spent most of his childhood in Scotland, but was exiled to England in 1093. There he became a hanger-on at the court of King Henry I and experienced long exposure to Norman and Anglo-French culture. for more click here
