Bruide son of Maelchú

Death of Bruide son of Maelchú, king of the Picts.

— Annals of Ulster, U584.3

This is the King Brude/Bruide about whom St. Adomnán writes in the Vita Columbae.  He does not make it clear, however, whether or not the Pictish king was converted by St. Columba or was already a Christian.
