King Kenneth Dubh – Black King of Scotland

A curious aspect of the early history of Scotland concerns various stories around Kenneth. King Kenneth was also known as ‘Kenneth the Niger’ or Kenneth Dubh, a surname which means ‘the black man’.

It is a matter of history that many seafaring warriors were North African, travelled via Iberia into Europe, and joined in many cultures and held power and position. Niger Val Dubh lived and reigned over certain black divisions in Scotland, and some histories state that a race known as ‘the sons of the blacks’ succeeded him. (e.g. see JA Rogers, Sex and Race).

Kenneth III was king of Scotland from 997 to 1005. He was the son of King Dubh (Dub mac Mail Choluim – 962-967), fourth cousin of the previous king Constantine III, and first cousin of his successor Malcolm II. Kenneth was the last king of Scotland to succeed to the throne through the tanistry system, whereby the succession was shared between two family lines and the dying king named his successor from the other family line. This system led to constant struggle between the ruling families and was abandoned. Kenneth and his son Giric were both killed at Monzievaird, Tayside in 1005.

His first cousin Malcolm succeeded him and abolished the tanistry system by killing all of his male descendants. However Kenneth had a granddaughter, Gruoch, via his daughter Boite, whose first husband was Gillacomgain. They had a son called Lulach. She then married King Macbeth I of Scotland (becoming Lady Macbeth). On the death of Macbeth her son via her first marriage, Kenneth III’s great grandson, succeeded to the throne, to become King Lulach of Scotland. According to this history, the blood of Kenneth flows through the royal houses of Scotland.

This story captures a curious fact about the Gaels from Gallicia – some were dark and have left many traces in Irish, Welsh and Scots clans.

  1. Dubh doesn’t mean black man, you fool. It just means black, and that refers to either his accusations of witchcraft or his black hair. There were never any Africans in Scotland or Britannia in general. There were no black divisions of clans.
    When people say black or brown when referring to the Celts or Germanics, it meant their hair.
    There weren’t any African roots to the clans. How DARE you try and steal our Celtic heritage, you afrocentric moron?

    1. Dear wrath,
      I just traced my lineage to Orcadian through DNA. Which means some of my ancestors were from Scotland. I am an Afro-Euro American (not MULATO) Explain that. DNA doesn’t lie. There has been no one in 3 generations that anyone knows in my family from Orkney. No one wants to steal anyone’s heritage but at the same time, not all of the truth has been told. I am a part of the Celtic heritage like it or not. I found this info by accident while conducting research. I was just trying to make some sense of things, and this knowledge of King Kenneth would not be completely far fetched knowing my Celtic background. I am turned off by all of the racist rants on both sides. If you study science and put your bias racist ignorance behind, science has proven that the human genome came from Africa. Not my words, this is science. The reason why you don’t know about black contributions to the world is because of your Eurocentrism. I have found that a great majority of blacks do not want to identity with their European heritage. I just want to know the truth what ever it might be.

      1. I am thrilled whenever anyone really wants truth. I hear so many of the same arguments over and over but it seems to me that there is a lot already out there everyone looks right past. I can’t site proof but sure would like to know if there is dna proof that President Obama is actually the 6th black president regardless of skin tone. Where I can point to something so easy and I am frustrated that the black population has not even noticed. I watch a lot of old movies and there are blacks everywhere as white people. Just saw the old Anna Corinna- there is a black man playing white. He was probably just a little light skinned but clearly a black man. There is another example of a lot of white denial is President Harrison’s(1889-1893) 2nd wife Mary Lord Harrison is clearly a black woman that history seems to be in denial-see her-
        there is a book out saying that there was a few of the state representatives “class of ‘s pictures showing majority black and that they are excluded in the class pictures. It is said that those years are skipped and if you ask where those years pictures are, nobody knows. Now if this is true, why isn’t the black population demanding those pictures be displayed and also put into class curriculum.

    2. What Albino do you know with “Black” hair?? Most White people are Albinos (recessive genes) who were born of Africans dimwit and those who lose more melanin by moving north. Common sense should tell you that when African migrated out of Africa into Europe they were not white yet unless of course they were Albino. Whose the moron?

      1. I have met black albinos, they do exist. but you can’t be called albino if you have pigment in your hair. The accepted scientific theory of how white people happened is not from the albino gene but a result of moving away from the climate & high altitude and coastal diets of africa to the landlocked colder climates & available foods in Europe. Without the vitamin d from fish and sun, people had to wear more clothes and with long winters, the only way they could have survived is if their skin lightens to let sun in. I don’t have an answer for why the hair types changed. I can only guess that African hair is the way it is specific to protect in the african climate. We don’t see these changes in current migrations because of the availability of temp. control inside and the ability to eat any food you want. The changes are drastically obvious when you compare 3rd world populations. I do have an example, After 3 generations in Jamaica my cousins who are german and chinese were as dark as any united states blacks. They had even color without tan lines. Everyone asked if they were black. The answer was yes we have black cousins but not these. Now after about 30yrs of living in chicago and alaska, they are all white as ghosts and sunburn now.

        1. The people you are referring as white are Albinos. There are more than one type of Albinism – a mutation which is caused by a defective P gene. Saying that people became white after moving to warmer climate is a bullshit like conconcted by whites to hide their albinism. There is nothing wrong with being an Albino and I understand why you whites would be offended by the term after all, you have spent centuries white washing black history and have had held an ongoing campaign for centuries to degrade and humiliate black people. Albinos are humans, not monkeys or sub humans, some of the terms you have levied onto black people. If people were turning white from moving to warmer climates, how do you explain the dark skin Eskimos and the now extinct tribe from Antartica who were able to walk naked in antartica winters because they had MELANIN to protect them. Wearing clothes is an adaptation for Albinos because exposure to any eliminate is detrimental to Albino skin. But because Albinos could not go naked, they convinced everyone using religious lies that it was wrong to walk naked. Visit for “The Real History of White People.”

          What you Albinos fail to understand is the purpose of this website is to debunk white lies but all you Albinos do is bring the same type of white lie that we have seen for centuries. You are Albinos. There is only one race and that is the black race. Every other race is subspecies but for centuries you Albinos have been lying to the world claiming some of supremacy based on your unmelinated skin colour. This site is not for you Albinos to retell “white lies” we are constantly exposed to white lies everyday. We black people come to this site to have a break and relief from white lies aka white insecurities.

  2. Wow Wrath! that is an incredibily ignorant statement, but would we expect more! How is that stealing your heritage? People need to open their eyes to the truth and embrace it.

  3. first of all your wrath is weak wrath.listen white people are genetic mutations of black people and thats a fact. you should respect where you came from. THE BLACK GENE. and let me make myself clear I am not a racist. actually there is only one form of racism and thats WHITE SUPREMECY. It is hard for whites to accept the truht about themselves, so you people have become the master of lies and confusion. soon all white people will be dependent on black geneology this is why for the past 20 years your wicked scientist have been storing up on black plecenta’s through planned parenthood so you can study your creator THE BLACK GENE run the world you will soon be back in your place. However dont cry young evil ones once again we will forgive you cause gods people have compassion no matter how much you trick, kill, rape, pillage, destroy, corrupt, infest with disease. why do you think white WOMEN and long for the blackman semen? because genetically your women know they need real substance. your people are so weak cant even produce without drugs and evil experiments.

    1. Please let me give you something based in reality to be angry about. This is not myth or conspiracy theory but recent American history( which is being lied about and ignored in the media) I seem to be the only person I know who remembers Iran/contra drugs for guns. Ronald Reagan was proved to be a traitor who belonged in front of a firing squad. He got away with it only because they said he was too far gone with Alzheimer so punishing him would be cruel and unusual punishment. There were live hearings on tv and the proof and memos signed by Reagan. It started when he was governor of California. Our government had started to support the rebels in the civil war in Nicaragua but soon found that the contras were just as ruthless as the dictatorship.. We stopped all aid and affiliation with them. This is where Reagan steps in seeing a personal benefit to continuing to support this butchery. He hired a CIA scientist to create a new drug that would make cocaine affordable to the poor. The only other instruction was that it needed to be so addictive that it would only take 1 dose to hook a person. This is the history of crack. Reagan didn’t sell it in his own neighborhood but instead the language in the memos referred to South central Los Angeles as the “targeted population” he chose the people who were least able to defend themselves. People forget that before crack, the average black would only go as far as pot. They had won civil rights and were on the way to being a top educated population working toward a better life. How many generations destroyed? All this was only a small part of the atrocities committed. The drugs were made from Reagan trading weapons for cocaine to the contras. After the cocaine came back it was turned into crack for the black neighborhood. those profits funded more assistance to the contras and then moved to support the Ayatollah Khomeini against our ally – a then free living educated vacation destination called Iran. Reagan worked out a deal that for the money and weapon support, that they wanted in return, that the American hostages who President Carter had negotiated their release in October were to be kept until after the election to make Carter look weak and make Reagan the hero when they would be released. Everyone forgets that as Reagan was taking his oath, the Ayatollah came on tv and exposed Reagan treason with proof and called us the great satan for making this man our leader. Everyone ignored it and the drug running started to be uncovered in his second administration but the hearings and proof didn’t come out till he was out of office. Since they said Reagan couldn’t remember his crimes, they worked out a deal for a couple years in prison by Oliver North- the next highest person they had proof on. (there was testimony that bush1 was involved but no proof ever came out. I am disgusted every time someone says Reagan was a great president. I think that must be code for “look how many blacks he F&$%ed with! Why does no one care? It is all public record but I guess people would rather look at cat videos instead of looking for truth.

  4. hey wrath i just thought of something because you posted your horse crap on this site im gonna digrace your nasty white women when i get a chance and make at least 5 of them stay on their knee’s for hours until they beg their pimp for mercy

  5. WOW Rath appears to have rattled a few cages! I’m paticlarly mystified as to carmi-reuben statment “the black gene running the world and non black will be put in their place” – – – – Why then is Africa not leading the world?

    1. We people of darker complexion have led the world since the very BEGINING.
      caucus asians have recently claimed they control the world. There is no comparison to the superiority of time that we the darker people can truely claim, the evidence is there and we will tell it to the world.

  6. I would suggest you read “Kingdom of the Ark” by Lorraine Evans as well as “Ancient and Modern Britons” by David MacRitchie.

    The Black Man and Woman’s blood will always run in every culture of the World, Done.

    1. I am all about black empowerment and raising people up to their full potential and I know a lot of white people who are the same. I am going to guess that the last line in your comment is more of an emotional outburst instead of fact. There really are white people out there who do not carry any African genes. less and less in the USA in the north and all southerners marrying even 1 generation of southerners all carry African genes due to the millions of rapes resulting in light skinned children raised as white. There are many places in Europe where blacks have not been introduced. (or at least not re-introduced for more than a thousand years) Communism kept eastern Europe isolated. The Chinese don’t carry any African genes. I don’t know how the genes dropped out if they were there but I do know it takes 10 generations to breed out a gene but in those 10 generations, there can’t be any reintroduction of more African genes or the timing starts over again. This is why all southerners are black. I actually get pleasure from telling that to them when they get all racist. I say you really shouldn’t hate yourself so much, you have value too. Ha! stops them dead every time.

  7. wow it’s so sad that Caucasians want to deny black people being leaders and not always slaves.Black people were everywhere in this world not just in chains
