Aren't Aed and Domhnall both Gaelic names? That would make three of Alpin's successors have Gaelic names suggesting, as attested to above, that the Scots and Picts had already blended somewhat. Perhaps Kenneth MacAlpine was the first to recognise himself as a Scot, or the first with Scottish ancestry to have the power to proclaim that side.
Ok so I'm looking at the wiki for both.
From the Caledonians wiki
Caledonians - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Picts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
1 Red Haired/Blue Eyed
3 Spoke a non celtic Language
4 Wore Trousers (Bracae?)
5 Tartan/Plaid Cloth
6 Were skilled metal workers (Jewelry)
7 Good with a horse and a bow
8 Had a Matriarchal or Semi Matriarchal society
9 Had tribal land or brand markers
Could I find a Tribe in Scotland? Maybe the Picts? That fit what I'm looking for?
''Latmus (near Miletus) was beside the city of Caunus
(in Caria), symbolized by the mythical Kaunos, son of Miletus.
Picus , a demigod, son of Cronos, living on the Aventine hill.
Kind of divinity that might be likened to the SATYRS or PANS.
He is said to have used powerful drugs and practised
clever incantations and to have traversed Italy playing the
same tricks as the Idaean DACTYLS. Circe loved him, and
being refused, transformed him into a bird (a woodpecker).
Picus is father (by Canens) of Faunus."
FYI, this Picus may connect to the British Picts?
Caunus, Pictish King of Aicluith, had a son Gildas.
- Saint Patrick was born at Nemthur, near Aicluith.
- Gildas Albanius, or the British Gildas, was born at Aicluith.
- Merlin Caledonius, or "Merlin the Wild," was a native of Aicluith.
Aicluith was ruled by a line of pagan kings.
King Caunus, the father of Gildas, had pagan ancestors.
Columba was the son of a pagan founded royal family.
I notice a theme, in terms of all those
royal princes from a pagan family background,
who are all of a sudden christian monks, being
portrayed as if good deeds and christianity go hand
in hand. This was taken from the character of 'jesus'
and educated to these royal princes, while children
in the pagan palace, full of the vices of the pagan kings..
"Your speech and promises," said Ethelbert, "are fair;
but as they are novel and untried, I cannot yield my assent,
and give up the principles so long embraced by my ancestors. ''
So above, this Ethelbert clearly did not want to comply, with the 'elite'
He is recorded here for us, criminalizing the entire royal family.
Just because a branch went along with the agenda, and
converted to christianity openly, what about the history of
their criminal pagan wars? and slave punishments using pagan law?
What about the land - UK ? This was claimed under pagan authority.
Once established here with all our land, they changed their divine
authority and got away with it.
King Ethelbert above, talks about his 'pagan principles'.
Remember these principles caused mass murder, child sacrifice
, demons and superstition. Royalty were the first educated, the
first to educate us, with this superstitious nonsense. Then christianity
was used to reverse this effect and remain in power.
Even today, remnants of this royal superstition linger.
Following alias Jesus and his exposure of pagan
evils, the royal branches around the world were
worried. I can conclude that royal princes are
educated according to any threat to the elite,
at the time. So Gilda's put on a brave face indeed,
having all that pressure to persuade us.
A very cunning education for him, im sure.
So they dressed him in his new outfit,
and sent him to face the pagan subjects.
I have no doubt this is what happened.
Slowly over the centuries, the pagan elements have
been phased out, to leave us with what we have today.
from the ealry monks and bishops:
'...why do you not ask our Lord Jesus Christ,
who is powerful to bestow all things which are asked
of him in faith, that he extend the boundaries of this
island, and make its soil fruitful?”
This clearly 'sustains' the pagan element of soil
fertility. ( Ancient Egypt Osiris, now applied to Jesus )
So as expected , in the ealry christain days
the superstition of Egypt encapsulated christianity,
and was even a pre-requisite.
