Brief Clan History

The name comes from Gaelic term signifying son of life, and one of the most famous bearers of the clan name was MacBeth, the king of Scots who ruled from 1040 to 1057, Unlike the character in the Shakespeare play of the same name, MacBeth was a benevolent monarch who ruled wisely.

This name is said to mean son of Life and is derived from the Gaelic MacBheathain. In the 16th and 17th centuries two families of the name practised medicine in the Highlands, and it is claimed their name was later changed to Beaton.

MacBeth, King of Scotland, came to the throne in 1040 and ruled for 16 years. Shakespeare in his play MacBeth, attributes the murder of King Duncan to MacBeth and his Queen. MacBeth was killed at Lumphanan in 1056 and his body was taken to Iona for burial.

His clans ancestor is MacBeth (1005-1057), Mormaer (High Steward) of Moray, whose mother Doada (or Donalda) was the daughter of Scotlands King Malcolm II and Blanaid (who was the daughter of the Irish High King (Ard Ri) Brian Boru and his first wife Deidgre).

He married Gruoch, daughter of Boedhe who was the son of Kenneth III. So MacBeth was the grandson of King Malcolm II and his wife was the granddaughter of King Kenneth III.

Under the ancient law of the Scots he had as much claim to the throne of Scotland as King Duncan I. He was commander for Duncan I, whom he defeated and slew, thereby becoming king. MacBeth was proclaimed king, and Scotland prospered during his reign. He was later defeated by Malcolm, the son of Duncan.
