Marriage: Crinan of Atholl before 1008
General Notes:
Bethoc (Beatrix, Beatrice) MacKenneth, Princess of Scotland, born 984 at Atholl, Perth, Scotland; date of death is uncertain. Bethoc was the eldest daughter of King Malcolm II of Alba (Scotland), who had no sons. The strongest hereditary claim of succession to the Scottish throne therefore passed through Bethoc. Approximately 1000 CE, Princess Bethoc married Crinan the Thane de Mormaer (Earl) of Dunkeld. The first son of this marriage was Duncan Cn-Mohr MacCrinan, who ascended to the throne of Scotland in 1034. Early writers have asserted that Malcolm II also designated Duncan as his successor under the rules of tanistry because there were other possible claimants to the throne.
Bethoc married Crinan of Atholl before 1008. (Crinan of Atholl was born in 978 in Atholl, Perth, Scotland and died in 1045 in Dunkeld, Tayside, Scotland.) The cause of her death was killed in battle.
