Lulach of Scotland

Lulach (c1029- March 17, 1058) was made king of Scotland by the followers of Macbeth, his stepfather. He ruled for only a few months from 1057-1058 before being killed by Malcolm III of Scotland (Malcolm Canmore) who succeeded him.

Lulach appears to have been a weak king, and was known as "Lulach the Simple". He does, however, have the distinction of being the first king of Scotland of whom there are coronation details available. He was crowned in August 1057 at Scone Abbey in Perthshire, Scotland.
