  • Notes 
    • Also called Gille Crist. Earl of Angus; according to the Scots Peerage, the first to unambiguously use that title. According to some sources, his son Donnchad was by a marriage to Margaret of Huntingdon, who was at different times married to Conan IV, Duke of Brittany, and Humphrey de Bohun. But nothing of this is seen in SP, and CP calls it "doubtful."

      "Gilchrist, Earl of Angus [S.], br. and h. He was witness in 1198 to a document in the Chartulary of Arbroath Abbey (no. 148), to which Abbey he was a great benefactor. He d. between 1207 and 1211." [Complete Peerage I:146]
