Donnchad MAC CRÍNÁIN rí Alba

Suthen (Sybil) BJÖRNSDÓTTIR of Northumbria

  • Born: Abt 1010
  • Died: Abt 1040

   General Notes:

Stewart Baldwin on the Henry Project webpage: http://sbaldw.home.mindspring.com/hproject/prov/suthe000.htm
identifies her as "Suthen" (Sybil certainly doesn’t sound Danish to me. Curt) & states:
Suthen's name is known only from one of the Scottish king lists ("Regnal List I"), which gives the name of the mother of Malcolm III in an interlined addition [KKES 284]. ESSH 1: 596 cites the late fourteenth century Scottish historian John of Fordun [iv, 44] as stating that Duncan had married a kinswoman of Siward of Northumbria. Given Siward's support of Malcolm, that is plausible enough, but there does not appear to be any justification for attempts to define a more specific relationship between Suthen and Siward.

   Marriage Information:

Suthen married Donnchad MAC CRÍNÁIN rí Alba, son of Crínan MAC DONNCHADA abb Duine Caillenn and Bethóc INGEN MAÍL COLUIM Princess of the Scots, Lady of Atholl. (Donnchad MAC CRÍNÁIN rí Alba was born about 1013 in Atholl, Perthshire, Scotland, died on 14 Aug 1040 in Pitgaveny near Elgin, Moray, Scotland and was buried in Iona, Near Elgin, Scotland.)
