The Battle of Bryn Gorrydum was the battle in Alba between the forces of cousins Maelcon the Usurper and Drustan mab Necthana which led to Drustan taking his place as Cruarch of Alba.


The laws of succession in Alba dictate that the heir of the cruarch will be the cruarch's sister's son. Maelcon the Usurper, as the son of the then cruarch, attempted to take over his father's rule and forced Drustan, the rightful heir of the cruarch, into exile.

Notable deathsEdit

  • Moiread mab Necthana--sister of Drustan
  • Brother of Urist mab Wrada--fought on the side of Maelcon the Usurper and was killed by his brother
