KENNETH MACALPIN

In the late 830s Scotland was made up of several kingdoms, including Pictish kingdoms in the east and north, and Dalriada in the west. Dalriada's king was Kenneth MacAlpin. He aimed to build one Scottish nation to resist Viking attacks. In 841 he drove the Vikings from Dalriada, then invaded the Pictish kingdoms and routed them there. He became king of the Picts in 843. He made Scone, in the Pictish kingdom, his capital. He took to Scone the Stone of Destiny, on which Dalriadan kings were crowned. The stone is now in the Coronation Chair at Westminster Abbey. At the time of his death in 859, Kenneth was undisputed master of the new kingdom of Scotia, north of the river Forth.
