Kenneth Summary

Kenneth by Nigel Tranter

Norse-Slayer and nationbuilder, Kenneth, son of Alpin mac Eochaidh, King of Galloway, was the visionary who brought together the ancient kingdoms of Alba, Dalriada, Strathclyde and Galloway to create the country of Scotland in the ninth century.
Yet his vision was wider still. He dreamed of a great coming together of all the Celtic people, Scots, Irish, Welsh, Cornish and Manx, united against the Norse and the Anglo-Saxon invaders.
Fighting not only his country's enemies but also the fractious, obstinate wilfulness of his own people, his legacy was a nation, with it's own patron saint, the apostle Andrew, that would edure from the ninth century to the present day.
