The monarch of Scotland was the head of state of the Kingdom of Scotland. According to tradition, the first King of Scots was Kenneth I MacAlpin (Cináed mac Ailpín), who founded the state in 843.

Kenneth I:
Kenneth I is traditionally considered the founder of Scotland, which was then known as Alba, although like his immediate successors, he bore the title of King of the Picts. One chronicle calls Kenneth the first Scottish lawgiver but there is no information about the laws he passed.

Causantín mac Cináeda (died 877) was a king of the Picts. He is often known as Constantine I in reference to his place in modern lists of Scottish monarchs, but contemporary sources described Causantín only as a Pictish king. A son of Cináed mac Ailpín ("Kenneth MacAlpin"), he succeeded his uncle Domnall mac Ailpín as Pictish king following the latter's death on 13 April 862. It is likely that Causantín's reign witnessed increased activity by Vikings, based in Ireland, Northumbria and northern Britain. He died fighting one such invasion.

The ruins of Linlithgow Palace are located in the town of Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland, 15 miles (24 km) west of Edinburgh. The palace was one of the principal residences of the monarchs of Scotland in the 15th and 16th centuries. Although maintained after Scotland's monarchs left for England in 1603, the palace was little used, and was burned out in 1746.
Stirling Castle, located in Stirling, is one of the largest and most historically and architecturally important castles in Scotland. The castle sits atop an intrusive
Before the union with England, Stirling Castle was also one of the most used of the many Scottish royal residences, very much a palace as well as a fortress. Several Scottish Kings and Queens have been crowned at Stirling, including Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1542, and others were born or died there.
Falkland Palace, in Falkland, Fife, Scotland, is a royal palace of the Scottish Kings. It was one of the favourite places of Mary, Queen of Scots, providing an escape from political and religious turmoil.

Giric mac Dúngail (fl. c. 878-889), conhecido em inglês simplesmente como Giric e apelidado de Mac Rath ("Filho da Fortuna"), foi um rei dos pictos ou rei de Alba. Os anais irlandeses não registram nada sobre o reinado de Giric, nem os escritos anglo-saxões acrescentam nada, e a escassa informação que sobreviveu é contraditória. Os historiadores modernos discordam sobre se Giric foi o único rei ou governou juntamente com Eochaid, sobre sua ascendência, e se ele deveria ser considerado um rei picto ou o primeiro rei de Alba.
Eochaid ab Rhun (fl. 878-889) foi um rei de Strathclyde do século IX, que também pode ter sido rei dos pictos. Ele era filho de Rhun ab Arthgal, rei de Strathclyde, e descendia de uma longa linhagem de reis britânicos. A mãe de Eochaid é considerada filha de Cináed mac Ailpín, Rei dos Pictos.

O Reino de Alba, um nome que aparece pela primeira vez durante a vida de Constantino, estava situado no atual norte da Escócia.
