The "Genealogy of King William the Lyon" dated 1175 names

"Betoch filii Malcolmi" as parent of "Malcolmi filii Dunecani"[131].

The Chronicle of the Scots and Picts dated 1177 names

"Cran Abbatis de Dunkelden et Bethok filia Malcolm mac Kynnet" as parents of King Duncan[132].

The Chronicle of John of Fordun records that King Malcolm II had

"an only daughter…Beatrice who married Crynyne Abthane of Dul and Steward of the Isles…in some annals, by a blunder of the writer…abbot of Dul"[133].

Lady of Atholl. (Cawley's Medlands)

Crinan & Bethoc had two children:

i) DUNCAN ([1001]-killed in battle either Bothganowan/Pitgaveny, near Elgin, or Burghead 14 Aug 1040, bur Isle of Iona). His parentage is confirmed by the Annals of Ulster which record the death of "Donnchad son of Crínán, king of Scotland" in 1040[209]. The Chronicle of John of Fordun names "Duncan" as son of "Crynyne Abthane of Dul and Steward of the Isles" and his wife[210]. He succeeded in 1018 as King of Strathclyde. He succeeded his maternal grandfather in 1034 as DUNCAN I King of Scotland. (Cawley’s Medlands)

-----------------------

Bethóc ingen Maíl Coluim meic Cináeda was the eldest daughter of King Máel Coluim mac Cináeda, King of Scots, who had no known sons.

The strongest hereditary claim of succession to the Scottish throne therefore passed through Bethóc. Approximately 1000, Princess Bethóc married Crínán, Abbot of Dunkeld. The first son of this marriage was Donnchad I, who ascended to the throne of Scotland in 1034. Early writers have asserted that Máel Coluim also designated Donnchad as his successor under the rules of tanistry because there were other possible claimants to the throne.

Her sister Olith was married to Jarl Sigurd the Stout of Orkney, and the other sister Donada to Findláech, the Mormaer of Moireabh.

She is not to be confused with Bethóc ingen Domnaill Bain meic Donnchada.

  • Anderson, Marjorie Ogilvy. Kings and Kingship in Early Scotland, 1973 

--------------------

She gained the title of Heiress of Scone. As a result of her marriage, Bethoc of Scotland was styled as Lady of Atholl.

Sources/Notes:

  • Nigel Tranter has a pretty good book on the subject as well, "Macbeth the King" and I found it far more readable than Dorothy Dunnett's. Tranter thinks that Thorfinn and Macbeth are halfbrothers, sons of Malcolm II of Scotland 's daughter Dovada (I think). And Duncan is their cousin - son of

Malcolm II's other daughter Bethoc.<tigers14@aol.com>

Bethoc av Skottland, eller Bethóc ingen Maíl Coluim meic Cináeda, var den eldste datteren til kong Máel Coluim mac Cináeda (Malcolm II av Skottland) som ikke hadde noen sønner.

Det sterkeste arvelige krav til å etterfølge som skottenes konge gikk derfor via Bethóc. Omtrent rundt år 1000 giftet prinsesse Bethóc seg med Crínán av Dunkeld, lekmannsabbed og muligens mormaer. Den første sønnen av dette ekteskapet ble Donnchad mac Crínáin (Duncan I av Skottland) som overtok den skotske tronen i 1034. Tidlige skribenter har også forfektet at Máel Coluim mac Cináeda (Malcolm II av Skottland) selv hadde utsett Donnchad som sin etterfølger under reglene om tanisteri ettersom det var andre mulige krav til tronen. Det er mulig at Bethóc tidligere hadde vært gift med jarl Sigurd Lodvesson (kalt den digre eller staute) av Orknøyene, og med Findláech, mormaer av Moireabh. Bethóc må ikke forveksles med Bethóc ingen Domnaill Bain meic Donnchada, en datter av Donald III av Skottland.

The dynasty lasted until 1290. Its members were somewhat less prone than their ancestors to violent and early death.

In this period, the Scottish throne still passed in Picto-Gaelic matrilineal fashion, from brother to brother, uncle to nephew, and cousin to cousin. Duncan I's accession is thus noteworthy for being the beginning the transition to the evolving Anglo-Norman system of primogeniture.
