Kings and Queens of Great Britain, Genealogical Chart, Anne Taute and Romilly Squire, Taute, 1990: "DuncanI King of Scotland 1034-1040, Son of Bethoc and Crinan, Grandson of Malcolm II, Mar Aelflaed Daughter of Ealred, Earl of Northumbria, Killed 1040."

Wall Chart of World History, Edward Hull, 1988, Studio Editions, Scotland 1033: "Duncan I, Kingof Scotland 1033-1039..."

The Story of Civilization, Will Durant, Vol IV, The Age of Faith, Ch XX, The Rise of the North, Sec IV, Scotland, p501. "Duncan I (1034-40) gathered all four peoples-Picts, Scots, Celtic British, and Anglo-Saxons-into one kingdom Scotland. Duncan's defeat by the English at Durham gave an opening to his general Macbeth, who claimed the throne because his wife Gruoch was granddaughter of Kenneth III. Macbeth murdered Duncan (1040), reigned for seventeen years, and was murdered by Duncan's son Malcolm III. Of seventeen kings who ruled Scotland from 844 to 1057, twelve died by assassination. It was a violent age of bitter struggle for food and water, freedom and power."

Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1981, Micropaedia, Vol III, p706, Duncan I: "Died 1 Aug near Elgin Moray, King of the Scots 1034-1040. Grandson of King Malcolm II (ruled 1005-1034), who irregularly made him ruler of Strathclyde when that region was absorbed into the Scottish Kingdom (probably shortly before 1034). Malcolm violated the established wystem of succession whereby the kingship alternated between two branches of the royal family. Upon Malcolm's death, Duncan succeeded peacefully, but he soon faced the rivalry of Macbeth, Mormaor (Subking) of Moray, who probably had a better claim to the throne. Duncan besieged Durham unsuccessfully in 1039 and in the following year was murdered by Macbeth. Duncan's elder son later killed Macbeth and ruled as KingMalcolm III Canmore (1058-93), and the younger son, Donaldbane, ruled Scotland from 1093 to 1097."

Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1981, Macropaedia, Vol III, p234, Britain and Ireland History of: "About 1016, Malcolm II placed his grandson DuncanI upon the throne of the British kingdom of Strathclyde. Duncan succeeded Malcolm in 1034 and brought Strathclyde into the kingdom of the Scots. According to the Celtic system of succession, known as tanistry, a king could be succeeded by any male member of the `derbfine', a family group of four generations. Members of col- lateral branches seem to have been preferred to descendants, and the successor or tanist might be named in this predecessor's lifetime. This system, in practice,led to many successions by the killing of one's predecessor. Thus Duncan I was killed by his cousin Macbeth in 1040, and Macbeth was killed by Malcolm III Canmore, Duncan I's son, in 1057..."

Draper Gedcom
Duncan I. (Maldred), King of Scotland, was slain by his cousin, Macbeth,
local chief of Moray in 1041. One source puts his death on August 14,

He was also the King of Strathclyde.

He married about 1030, a cousin (some say the sister) of Siward, Earl of
Northumbria. Wurts records that he married Algitha, daughter of Uchtred,
Earl of Northumberland and his wife, Elgifu, daughter of King Ethelred II.
