bullet  General Notes:

Constantine III (Causantín mac Cuilén) was king of Scotland from 995 to 997. He was the son of King Culen, third cousin once removed of the previous king Kenneth II, and fourth cousin of his successor Kenneth III of Scotland (997-1005).

Very little is known about Constantine III's life due to his short reign as King of Scotland. He is said to have married, but details of this marriage are not known. The marriage does appear to have been childless.

He became King through the failing tanistry law which still controlled Scottish succession at the time. Much like his predecessors, Constantine III was killed in 997, allowing his predecessor's nephew, Kenneth III, to claim the throne. He died at Rathinveramon and his place of burial is not known today. Constantine III was the fifth King of Scotland to be murdered in succession. 1823
