Maol Chalvim I was the King of Scotland from 943 to 954. He was mentioned in "Once Upon A Time There Were Three Brothers...".


He was the father of Duff, Kenneth II, and Prince Malcolm by three successive wives, the last one, Malcolm's mother, being Queen Katharine (Duff's and Kenneth's mothers had died in childbirth). When he died in 954, he asked his older two sons to look after his widow Katharine, which they promised to do; the ambitious lord Indulf would exploit this promise when he seized the Scottish throne afterwards.

Maol Chalvim I was buried at Iona.
