Succeeded the joint rule of Giric and Eochaid. Succeeded by Constantine II. At this time, after the deaths of Eochaid and Giric, the throne alternated between the two parts of the Alpin House, both of which were descendants of the sons of Kenneth MacAlpin, Constantine I and Aed. Constantine's son Donald II now ruled the land and he didn't pick the best time to be King. The Danish had conquered the whole of the north of Scotland led by 'Sigurd the Mighty'. Sigurd claimed the lands and slayed his adversary 'Melbrigda Tonn', cut off his head and ceremoniously hung it from his saddle. This however was not such a great idea, because, as the head bounced around, it banged against his leg and a tooth punctured Sigurds leg; he quickly died of blood poisoning. The now departed Melbrigda Tonn was renamed 'The Tooth'.

Donald II, after spending his time fending off the Danish from the north (which used to be lead by Sigurd), and from the south (led by the Danish leader 'Guthrum'), died near Forres in 900. Some say he was poisoned.".
