  1. Got to agree with Kenneth McAlpine, Constantine II and David I getting Rex factor. With Alexander III on the horizon it will be interesting to see how many more pick up the prize. I’m looking forward to Anglo-Scottish match up for Rex Factor top place!

  2. Looking at the early royal Scots I am struck by the names given to their children. For example, Constantine I’s son who became king didn’t share his name with his grandfather (Kenneth I) but with his great uncle (Donald I). Aed’s son who became king also didn’t have his grandfather’s name (Kenneth I) but shares his uncle’s name (Constantine I).

    I don’t know about traditions associated with choosing a child’s name, but at a basic level I would guess Donald I and Constantine I were well respected at the time the names were chosen for these children. Knowing who later generations wanted their children to be associated with has an influence on how I vote. A large number of namesakes indicates Rex Factor to me 🙂

    • It’s possible with Constantine II that he was born when his uncle, Constantine I was king, which may have been the motivation behind the name. However, there may well be some more Kenneths to look forward to as the series goes on, so don’t write K-Mac off on the name dynasty front!

  3. You never got around to explain how Donald lost his trousers! Assuming it to be the stuff of legend, how did it arise?
