Overview

Constantine led his army into Northumbria. At the Battle of Corbridge, he forced Ragnall, the Viking King of York, to withdraw from the Angle earldom of Northumbria that stretched from Lothian to the Tyne. In return the restored earl, Eadred, recognised Constantine as his overlord, resulting in much of the land in modern-day Scotland being either under the direct kingship of the King of Alba or was under his rule as overlord.
