-------------------- Reigned 889-900

Notes Other parishes in Scotland may boast themselves the birthplace of greater men than can Fordoun, but no district in Scotland has seen the death of so many Sovereigns. Donald, King of Alban (889 - 900) was killed in a battle between the Danes and the Scots. "Over Fotherdun upon the brink of the waves he lies, In the east, in his broad, gory bed" says St Berchan. Dr Skene identifies this with the parish of Fordoun, although referring to Dun Fother or Dunnottar as the locality. The Kingdom of Alban extended from the Forth to the Spey.

Notes ◦Other parishes in Scotland may boast themselves the birthplace of greater men than can Fordoun, but no district in Scotland has seen the death of so many Sovereigns.

The Pictish Chronicle, written in the tenth century, records that in 954 Malcolm I, King of Alban, was slain by the "Men of the Mearns" (viri na Moerne) at Fodresach (Fetteresso). Dr Skene, apparently by mistake, supposes his death to have occurred in the parish of Fordoun. St Berchan says:
Nine years to his reign
Traversing the Borders,
On the brink of Dun Fother at last
Will shout the Gael around his grave
