The new king had too many troubles at home to make it wise for him to try to defend the gains which his grandfather had won from England, and before the close of this year he met Henry at Chester and gave up his claim on the northern counties, received the earldom of Huntingdon, and did homage to his cousin, but for what, whether for his earldom or his kingdom was not clearly stated..."

On his accession theyoung king was at once faced with a rebellion of the Western Gaels, supported by the Norse, which he put down. Henry II of England insisted he give up his claim to Northumbria in 1157 in return for a re-grant of the Earldom of Huntingdon, which was largely useless to the Scottish kings because of its distance from Scotland. Malcolm fought on Henry's behalf in France (1159) and, on his return, completed the subjection of Galloway. He was succeeded by his brother William the Lion."
