(Template:Succession box) Malcolm was the son of Donald II (d. 900) and assumed the kingship of Scotland some time between 940 and 945. The confusion of the sources (if not simply the result of multiple copying errors) may indicate that this was a period of political uncertainty in which he gradually asserted his position against the aged Constantine II (d. 952), who retired (perhaps under duress) and became a monk at St Andrews. Throughout his reign Malcolm was on the offensive to both north and south. In 945 he benefited from Edmund of Wessex's devastation of the kingdom of Strathclyde, which Edmund formally acknowledged to belong to Malcolm's sphere of influence. He attacked the north of England as far as the Tees c.949 (perhaps in support of the attempt of Olaf Cuarán, king of Dublin, to take York) and in the same period or maybe earlier led an army into Moray and killed Cellach, possibly its king. In 952 he formed part of an alliance of Scots, Britons (from Strathclyde), and Saxons which was defeated by a Scandinavian force, probably led by Erik Bloodaxe, former king of Norway (d. 954), who took control of York at this time. Malcolm I was not untroubled by matters at home, however, and in 954 was killed by the men of the Mearns at Fetteresso (Kincardineshire). His body is said to have been taken to Iona for burial. He had two sons, Dubh (d. 966) and Kenneth II (d. 995), both of whom became king in Scotland; he was succeeded by Indulf, son of Constantine II.

Biography

Malcolm I , who died in 958, King of Scotland 943, acquired Cumbria 945 from Edmund, the Saxon king of England. On the abdication of Constantine III., Malcolm succeeded to the throne in 944. In 945, Edmund, the Saxon king of England, ceded Cumberland and part of Westmoreland to him, on condition that he would defend that northern territory, and become the ally of England. Edred, the brother and successor of Edmund, accordingly applied for, and obtained the aid of Malcolm against Anlaf, King of Northumberland, which latter country he wasted, and carried off the inhabitants with their cattle. In the time of Malcolm I., the people of the province of Moray, in the northeast of Scotland, were a mixed race, formed of Scandinavian settlers, with Scottish and Pictish Celts. Turbulent and rebellious, they were continually at war with the sovereign, and an insurrection having occurred under Cellach, maormer of Garmorgan, Malcolm marched north to reduce them to obedience. He killed Cellach, but was, some time thereafter, assassinated in 953 at Ulurn after a reign of nine years. He was succeeded by Indulph, the son of Constantine II., and Indulph had as his successor, Duff, the son of Malcolm, who ascended the throne in 961.

Scottish monarch. Son of Donald II, he acceded in 943, ruling until 954. During his reign, Moray and Cumbria were annexed to the kingdom. He died in battle with Norse invaders near Fodresach. He was buried in Saint Orans Chapel Cemetery, Iona, Scotland.
