The Scots and the North of England

The Scots and the North of England

(p.231) 7 The Scots and the North of England
The Anarchy of King Stephen's Reign

G. W. S. Barrow

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the role of the Scots and the North of England during the reign of King Stephen. It suggests that the phrases north of England, king of Scots, and even simply the Scots are delicate issues during King Stephen's reign. This is because the Scots were ruled by a dynasty who considered themselves not only as the Cenel nGabrain but as the unchallenged rulers of Alba, the whole of Scotland north of Clyde and Forth together with its islands to the west and north.

Keywords:   King Stephen, Scots, North of England, king of Scots, Cenel nGabrain, Alba, Scotland
