Treaty of Abernethy

1072

Shortly after his successful invasion of England in 1066 William the Conqueror pushed north into present-day Scotland, attempting to bring the Scots under Norman control. The Norman invasion was largely successful, and at Abernethy (in the Cairngorms, near Nethy Bridge) King Malcolm III of Scotland paid homage to William, acknowledging William as his feudal overlord. The exact terms of the Treaty of Abernethy are unknown, as no copy has survived.
