Alexander I of Scotland

Alexander I, posthumously nicknamed The Fierce, was the King of Scotland from 1107 to his death. Alexander was the fifth son of Malcolm III by his wife Margaret of Wessex, grandniece of Edward the Confessor. Alexander was named after Pope Alexander II, he was the younger brother of King Edgar, unmarried, his brother's heir presumptive by 1104. In that year he was the senior layman present at the examination of the remains of Saint Cuthbert at Durham prior to their re-interment, he held lands in Lothian. On the death of Edgar in 1107, he succeeded to the Scottish crown. Edgar's will granted David the lands of the former kingdom of Strathclyde or Cumbria, this was agreed in advance by Edgar, Alexander and their brother-in-law Henry I of England. In 1113 at Henry's instigation, with the support of his Anglo-Norman allies, David demanded, received, additional lands in Lothian along the Upper Tweed and Teviot. David did not receive the title of king, but of "prince of the Cumbrians", his lands remained under Alexander's final authority.

The dispute over Tweeddale and Teviotdale does not appear to have damaged relations between Alexander and David, although it was unpopular in some quarters. A Gaelic poem laments:It's bad what Malcolm's son has done,dividing us from Alexander; the dispute over the eastern marches does not appear to have caused lasting trouble between Alexander and Henry of England. In 1114 he joined Henry on campaign in Wales against Gruffudd ap Cynan of Gwynedd. Alexander's marriage with Henry's illegitimate daughter Sybilla of Normandy may have occurred as early as 1107, or as at late as 1114. William of Malmesbury's account attacks Sybilla, but the evidence argues that Alexander and Sybilla were a devoted but childless couple and Sybilla was of noteworthy piety. Sybilla died in unrecorded circumstances at Eilean nam Ban in July 1122 and was buried at Dunfermline Abbey. Alexander did not remarry and Walter Bower wrote that he planned an Augustinian Priory at the Eilean nam Ban dedicated to Sybilla's memory, he may have taken steps to have her venerated.

Alexander had at least one illegitimate child, Máel Coluim mac Alaxandair, to be involved in a revolt against David I in the 1130s. He was imprisoned at Roxburgh for many years afterwards until his death some time after 1157. Alexander was, like his brothers Edgar and David, a notably pious king, he was responsible for foundations at Inchcolm. His mother's chaplain and hagiographer Thurgot was named Bishop of Saint Andrews in 1107 by Alexander's order; the case of Thurgot's would-be successor Eadmer shows that Alexander's wishes were not always accepted by the religious community because Eadmer had the backing of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Ralph d'Escures, rather than Thurstan of York. Alexander patronised Saint Andrews, granting lands intended for an Augustinian Priory, which may have been the same as that intended to honour his wife. For all his religiosity, Alexander was not remembered as a man of peace. John of Fordun says of him: Now the king was a lettered and godly man, he manifested the terrible aspect of his character in his reprisals in the Mormaerdom of Moray.

Andrew of Wyntoun's Orygynale Cronykil of Scotland says that Alexander was holding court at Invergowrie when he was attacked by "men of the Isles". Walter Bower says the attackers were from Mearns. Alexander pursued to "Stockford" in Ross where he defeated them. This, says Wyntoun, is why he was named the "Fierce"; the dating of this is uncertain. However, in 1116 the Annals of Ulster report: "Ladhmann son of Domnall, grandson of the king of Scotland, was killed by the men of Moray." The king referred to is Alexander's father, Malcolm III, Domnall was Alexander's half brother. The Mormaerdom or Kingdom of Moray was ruled by the family of Macbeth and Lulach: not overmighty subjects, but a family who had ruled Alba within little more than a lifetime. Who the Mormaer or King was at this time is not known; as for the Mearns, the only known Mormaer of Mearns, Máel Petair, had murdered Alexander's half-brother Duncan II in 1094. Alexander died in April 1124 at his court at Stirling. Alexander was depicted in a fantasy novel: Pater Nostras Canis Dirus: The Garrison Effect.

Alexander is depicted troubled by his lack of direct heirs, having no child with his wife Sybilla of Normandy. He points. Chambers, Robert. "Alexander I.". A Biographical Dictionary of Eminent Scotsmen. 1. Glasgow: Blackie and Son. Pp. 46–47 – via Wikisource
