Edinburgh enters History

in 1004,Malcolm I. had Lothian formally ceded to him by Eadulf- Cudel, Earl of Northumberland, who had previously exercised some right of vassalage over it, probably a remnant of Edwin’s departed power; and from this period begins the authentic history of Edinburgh and its castle, as from that time it continued to be almost permanently the’ residence of the early and later monarchs and their officers of state.
