If you are serious in what you seem to be saying then you should get involved in practical politics and try and bring about what you claim to be your beliefs. The rest of us will not be holding our breath. As it happened his nickname became a surname, and his sons, grandsons, and great grandsons went on to rule Scotland. Malcolm IV was known as 'The Maiden' because he remained unmarried.
Not because he was not a lusty vigourous aristocrat, but because he was a 'Sir Galahad' figure, an austere, violent warrior, dedicated to the 'Christian ideal' of a celibate young man, given to pursue other worldy pursuits not worldy pleasures. Not too useful when you are a King. His brother succeded him. If i can drag mysef from the Salutation I may have a look. Usually history is wrtten by the victors. In this instance it is sung by the losers. Remember the rules: If a Scot insults an Englishman he is beng patriotic.
If an Englishman insults a Scot he is racist. Anyone know how Lucy Newman is? Isa Ropen, Scotland.

I think MacBeth became King about , then reigned till about I was eagerly awaiting to hear the historical facts behind the story of Shakespeare's 'Scottish Play', as, if my memory serves me rightly, Duncan and Macbeth were real historical personages.
If Malcolm was Malcolm Canmore, then that would put it into some kind of perspective. Dances with Haggis my definition of a globalist admittedly utopian is someone who believes in a society without frontiers, a benign government of the whole world without division and racial strife which engenders a free andd equable sharing of the earth's recources. The exact antithesis of the current money-grabbing, fractious political situation based on an antiquated concept of national boundaries which I assume you support and wish to extend.
In reponse to your last letter, I did re-read your original, but I'm afraid it still reads the same to me. You were certainly making a point, but the substance of it is full of acrimony and singularly humourless. I wonder how 'funny' Mexicans would find that particular reference?

One of the best historical programmes I have ever seen. Very informative. There is one factor though that I find most depressing about Scotlands past, it would appear that while I can understand why there there is deep resentment against the English for Scotlands loss of independence, it was only facilitated by the backstabbing and treacherous behaviour of many Scots, all greedy for power and control.
It was their behaviour which always gave England the oppurunities was it not? Enjoyed the series.
Massive subject,but well covered here. Malcolm, buried in Tynemouth as penance for his brutal conduct towards the Northumbrians, was never repatriated, and a local farmer was sent in his stead. So a King of Scotland will remain on Northumbrian soil for all time. Hope you and yours have a great visit. Mexicans also apparently.

Which people are next for your nationalist hammer? Dave, Nottingham You'd be surprised by the influence in most areas that Scots have actually had and especially given the small size of the place. Although for me the majority of this influence came from the Enlightenment onwards as per the post of Fergus MacErc, Glesga down the page. That of course all come into play from the 18th century and I believe will come in the next series.
Even the Bank of England was founded by a Scot William Paterson , although he then led the courntry to bankruptcy and ruin through the ill fated Darien "adventure" Take no notice of them that feel chastened by the truth. You've just read a comment by a man in England that wishes we would keep these things hidden. What's wrong with airing the truth? Otherwise, have you ever tried sitting on your hands! How did the universe ever come into being without Scots? Because the contributers on this site seem to credit them for all things. Judging by the comments allowed on this site the moderator is probably Scottish and anti English.
What i have seen and heard of Scots they think impartiality is a short measure of whisky. This text from Wikipedia describes my understanding of the Highlands, which excludes the low lying areas of the North East e. Nairn and Elgin: "In traditional Scottish geography, the Highlands refers to that part of Scotland north-west of the Highland Boundary Fault, which crosses mainland Scotland in a near-straight line from Dumbarton to Stonehaven.
However the flat coastal lands that occupy parts of the counties of Nairnshire, Morayshire, Banffshire and Aberdeenshire are often excluded as they do not share the distinctive geographical and cultural features of the rest of the Highlands. The north-east of Caithness, as well as Orkney and Shetland, are also often excluded from the Highlands, although the Hebrides are usually included Dances with Haggis I realise you see the English as inferior beings.
