  • Notes 
    • Koning van Schotland
      Acceded: May 1094. Reigned May-Nov 1094.

      spent 15 years as a hostage in England before being released by William II in 1087. Aged about 34 when he deposed his uncle, Donald III, with English help, Duncan was in effect an English vassal and, as such, he was unpopular in Scotland. Duncan was killed by the Mormaer of the Mearns, presumably at Donald's instigation. His reign had lasted for about six months. It was he who granted the earliest surviving Scottish charter.
