15 August 16

On this date in 1040, Duncan I of Scotland was killed by his cousin Macbeth, who ruled until his own death on this date in 1057. My own genealogical heritage includes Scot from my mother's side (York). My Pendleton® tie's design matches no particular Scottish tartan, but its colors come close to those in some tartans for the Dunbar, MacDuff and Nicolson clans.
