daughter . According to the Complete Peerage, Gillbride Earl of Angus married as his second wife "the heiress of the earls of Caithness", in another passage stating that she was "sister of Harald Ungi Earl of Caithness". No primary source is cited in support of these statements and it is possible that this marriage, and the supposed parentage of the bride, are entirely speculative, in an attempt to explain the transmission of the half of the earldom of Caithness to Earl Gillbride´s son Magnus. Skene says that "the probability is that the half of Caithness which belonged to the Angus family was that half possessed by the earls of the line of Erlend, and was given by King Alexander with the title of Earl to Magnus, as the son of one of Earl Harald "Ungi"´s sisters" and that "the Norwegian name of Magnus indicates that [Earl Magnus] had a Norwegian mother". He cites no primary source either and the implication is that Skene is speculating on all the points which he makes. Concerning the supposed parentage of Earl Magnus´s mother, it appears unlikely that Magnus´s right to Caithness was derived from the junior branch of the comital family of Orkney/Caithness, to which Erik Slagbrellir belonged, as they ceased to hold any interest in the county after 1198, while Magnus´s grant appears to be dated to the 1230s (as discussed more fully below). A more sensible suggestion is that, assuming Magnus´s right to Caithness was inherited from his mother, she was related to the last Earl John, who died in 1232, and whose rights would have been divided between his two heiresses. m as his second wife, GILLBRIDE Earl of Angus, son of --- (-).] (Cawley's Medlands)
