m1 NN; Princess) of ARGYLL dau of Achalas King of Argyll
m2 Fergusia Princess of PICTS poss. dau of Ferat MacBARGOIT King of PICTS (? - 842)
m3 Drust IX (69th/103rd King) of PICTS, sister of
m4 Unuistic Fhinnon Princess of PICTS (which due to Pictish matrilineal succession would explain and justify Kennth I's conquest of the Picts.)
|For purposes further rights of succession it would be interesting to know which daughters issued from this marriage and whom they married. It would be reasonable to assume that the unnamed wives of some of the Scottish and Pictish Lairds of this periods were such daughters of Alpin and the Pictish princess. DNA analysis may in time reveal likely connections. comparison of the author'autosomal and highly orcadian DNA with that of other descendants of the other clan chiefs may shead some light on this question.|
|Al37||Kenneth I MacAlpin, King of Scots b 810 d 859/60 conqueror of the Picts and founder of the Kingdom of Alba, and, according to national myth, first king of Scots, earning him the posthumous nickname of An Ferbasach, "The Conqueror". Kenneth's undisputed legacy was to produce a dynasty of rulers who claimed descent from him and was the founder of the dynasty which ruled Scotland for much of the medieval period.|
|Kenneth is widely considered as the first King of the majority of the people in Scotland rather than king of just one of a few tribes. He reigned not in the right of Scot's inheritance, but in that of his Pictish Royal descent. The title "King Scots" originated much later.|

|For the record we note that a son of Duff, ie. "MacDuff", is often viewed as the progenitor of the early Earls of Fife. However, TSP (Fife) specifically discounts his existence as a literary creation and concludes "Of the existence, then, of Macduff, Thane or Earl of Fife, there is not a particle of proof." Dufagan (or Beth), whom we show as the first of the early Earls, is sometimes shown as son of MacDuff but that connection must be unsound if MacDuff himself did not exist !|
