Boite mac Cináeda

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 (Redirected from Bodhe)

Boite mac Cináeda ("Boite son of Kenneth") (also, Bodhe, Boedhe, etc) (985-1058) was a Scottish prince, son of either King Kenneth II (Cináed mac Maíl Choluim) or King Kenneth III (Cináed mac Duib).

He was the father of Gruoch of Scotland and friend to Findláech of Moray, Macbeth's father. He arranged the marriage of Macbeth and Gruoch in 1032, which permitted Macbeth to assume the throne of Scotland in 1040. Later he was behind the short-lived ascension of Lulach, his grandson, to the throne in 1057.

Kenneth III of Scotland

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Whether Boite mac Cináeda was a son of this Kenneth, or of Kenneth II, is uncertain, although most propose this Kenneth. A son, or grandson of Boite, was reported to be killed by Malcolm II in 1032 in the Annals of Ulster.[6]
