MARRIAGE: ABT 0809, Scotland

+"MacAlpin" KENNETH I


Princess Royal of Picts, Unuisticc of Fortrenn (Uisneachdan)

A bit of history:

The Picts practiced matrilinear descent. Princess Unuisticc was Princess of the Royal family of Uisneachtan of the Kingdom of Fortrenn.

Fortrenn, or Fortriu, is the ancient area of Strathearn and Monteith in Perth. Ancient Fortriu extends from the headwaters of Loch Lomond west to the Firth of Tay and includes Stirling, Dunblane and Loch Tay.

McNitt's description of Fortrenn says most of it would be contained in present day Perthshire and Forfarshire. Within this area we find such places as Nechtansmere, Dunnichen, where in 685 the Pict army had a great victory over the Northumbrians, Abernethy where King Nechtan built a church in the early 700's, the river Nethy, all these placenames cognative to clan Uisnechtan, the Royal Sons of Uisnech.

The first King Nechtan reigned 458 AD to 482 AD. The latter King Nechtan died in 732 AD. The Pict Kings moved their capitol from place to place. Sometimes it was in Scone in Fortrenn. King Nechtan's palace was on the river Ness according to Bede. The river Ness is about 5 miles long and extends from Loch Ness to the Moray Firth. If King Nechtan's palace was that close to Moray his clansmen must have occupied much of Moray.

There are few or no Nechtan placenames in Moray. Here we have the King of the Picts located on the eastern end of Scotland's Great Glen, that natural rift that devides Scotland into two sections, a natural pathway from east to west.

On the western end of the Great Rift we find Dal Riada. Dal Riada occupies the lands which anciently belonged to the Sons of Uisnech. The MacHenry clan of Glencoe descend from Big Henry, Son of King Nechtan. Most of the Picts of that royal family, from the first Nechtan King (458- 482) had to move eastward along the Great Glen, and that is how they came to Moray and the River Ness.

There was friction betweent the Dal Riadans and the Uisnechtan Picts. Ultimately a unification of the two peoples could come about through marriage. So, when Eochaid IV the Venomous of Dal Riada married Pictish Princess Unuisticc of Fortrenn this marriage is supposed to have united the Picts and Scots under one monarchy for the first time. Their son was the Great King Alpin of Alba, the first 'real' king of all Scotland and eponymous ancestor of: The House of MacAlpin

1. The father of Kenneth MacAlpin of Scotland was King Alpin of the Picts (778 AD. -- 834 AD)

2. The father of King Alpin was Eochaid IV the Venomous, King of Argyll, (747 AD -- 819 AD).

3. The wife of Eochaid IV the Venomous was Princess Royal of Picts, Unuisticc of Fortrenn, born 755 AD.
