"In 1018 Malcolm II conquered Lothian (the region north of the Tweed), and merged it with the realm of the Picts and Scots. Celtic supremacy seemed assured; but the Danish invasions of England drove thousands of `English' into south Scotland, and poured a strong Anglo-Saxon element into the Scottish blood."

About the same time, Malcolm II placed his grandson Duncan I upon the throne of the British kingdom of Strathclyde. Duncan succeeded Malcolm in 1034 and brought Strathclyde into the kingdom of Scots."
Malcolm II., born about 954, died November 25, 1034. He succeeded to the
throne in 1003, and had a troubled reign of about thirty years. He
defeated Kenneth IV., at Monievaird in Strathearn, and in consequence
His annoyance came from the Danes who, in previous reigns, had made
several attempts to effect a settlement in Scotland, but had been
defeated in all of them. They had secured a firm footing in England, and
the year after Malcolm's accession to the throne, they commenced the most
formidable preparations, under their celebrated king, Sweyn, for a new
expedition to the Scottish coasts.
Malcolm finally defeated this initial invasion in 1010. There was a
second attempt made to gain a foothold in Northern England, but it too
In 1014, another Danish force landed on the coast of Buchan. The Danes
on this occasion were led by Sweyn's celebrated son, Canute, afterwards
King of England and Denmark, and again they experienced a signal
overthrow. A treaty was drawn up which stipulated that the Danes agreed
to quit every part of the Scottish coasts, and this was followed by the
final departure, the same year, of these invaders from Scotland.
Malcolm was next engaged in war with the Northumbrians, and, having in
1018, led his army to Carham, near Werk, on the south bank of the Tweed
River, he was met there by Uchtred, Earl of Northumberland, when a
desperate battle took place. The victory was claimed by Uchtred, who
was, soon after, assassinated, when on his way to pay his obeisance to
the great Canute.
He killed Kenneth III., son of Dub. He had no sons.
Having succeeded as King of Alba in 1005, Malcolm II. secured Lothian by
the battle of Carham about 1016 and about the same time obtained
Strathclyde for his grandson, Duncan, thus forming the kingdom of

The son of Kenneth II (d. 995), who may have designated him as his heir,
Malcolm became king after killing Kenneth III (1005). His reputation
rests on his extension of his kingdom's frontiers south to the
Tweed-Solway line. Though repulsed at Durham (1006), he defeated a
Northumbrian army at Carham (1018) and asserted his claim to Lothian. In
the west, he had the alliance of Strathelye and when the last king died,
Malcolm secured the succession of his grandson, Duncan.
These conquests were recognized by English kings, though in return for
Malcolm's submission to Cnut when the latter marched as far as the Tay
(1031). The marriage of his daughter to Sigurd the Stout, Norse earl of
Orkney, took his influence even to the far north.
