David I : the king who made Scotland by Richard D Oram( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered to be one of the greatest of Scotland's medieval kings, this youngest son of King Malcolm III and St. Margaret was never expected to succeed to the throne. During the reigns of his elder brothers, David carved out a career for himself as an Anglo-Norman nobleman at the court of his brother-in-law, Henry I of England. With Henry's backing and the support of his elder sister, Queen Matilda, David secured a good marriage and a rich inheritance, with estates spread from Normandy to northern England, as well as a principality of his own in southern Scotland." "On succeeding to the Scottish throne in 1124, he faced a long and bitter struggle against rivals for his crown, but ruthlessly imposed his authority on the kingdom and won the respect of his Gaelic lords. As king, David began the modernisation of his kingdom along European lines. Many of the greatest families of medieval Scotland - such as the Bruces, Comyns and Stewarts - were brought in as colonists by David, and monastic communities - such as Dunfermline, Kelso, Melrose and Holyrood - were founded by him. Reform at home was coupled by aggressive expansion abroad, with David extending his power across the whole of mainland Scotland, into the Western Isles, and finally into northern England. Skilfully playing off Stephen and Matilda, the two rivals for the English throne after 1135, David secured control of Northumberland, Cumbria and even large parts of Yorkshire and Lancaster, tipping the balance of power in Britain firmly in favour of the Scots. It was a rich legacy to pass on to his heirs, but stripped of David's leadership, Scotland's dominant position swiftly crumbled away."--Jacket
Alexander II : King of Scots, 1214-1249 by Richard D Oram( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By equal measure state-builder and political unifier and ruthless opportunist and bloody-handed aggressor, Alexander II has been praised or vilified by past historians but has rarely been viewed in the round. This book explores the king's successes and failures, offering a fresh assessment of his contribution to the making of Scotland as a nation. It lifts the focus from an introspective national history to look at the man and his kingdom in wider British and European history, examining his international relationships and offering the first detailed analysis of the efforts to work out a l

The lordship of Galloway by Richard D Oram( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Lordship of Galloway offers new interpretations of the origins and development of the kingdom or lordship of Galloway, tracing its evolution from the Norse diaspora that followed the expulsion of the Vikings from Dublin in the early tenth century and the resulting establishment of new colonies around the Irish Sea, through the ever-shifting pattern of regional power in the eleventh century, to the emergence of the lordship itself in the early 1100s."--Jacket
