Malcolm III of Scotland

Máel Coluim mac Donnchada (Modern Gaelic: Maol Chaluim mac Dhonnchaidh, called in most Anglicised regnal lists Malcolm III, and in later centuries nicknamed Canmore, “Big Head” or Long-neck; died 13 November 1093), was King of Scots. It has also been argued recently that the real “Malcolm Canmore” was this Malcolm’s great-grandson Malcolm IV, who is given this name in the contemporary notice of his death.He was the eldest son of King Duncan I (Donnchad mac Crínáin). Malcolm’s long reign, lasting 35 years, preceded the beginning of the Scoto-Norman age. for more click here
