    Notes 
    • Bjolan is listed on a number of family tree sites but I can find no other evidence for him unless he is known by other names. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Scottish_monarchs (which includes Gaelic names and titles) and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Alba. Kings that fit the time frame are Donald II (Domnall mac Causantín) and Constantine II (Causantín mac Áeda)
    • Greetings from Trygve Berge.:
      Bjolan is mention as king in Landnåma. I have not found other places that Bjolan is mention as a Scottish king. His name is Celtic, also spelled Beolan. This name is later - about 1100 - mention in Ross in Scotland. May be this Beolan has been king in a part of Scotland before the Scottish kingdom was full restored? Look at establishing of Dalriada, the first place the Irish was etablished in Scotland. Bjolan may have lived around 850-900.
      But we have not solved the problem.
