  • thePeerage calls the place "Inverdorat, the Black Cove, Angus".
  • Genealogics says "877".
  • Tompsett says "Died: 877, beheaded" but also "Weir says he was killed in a battle against the Danes at Inverdorat, the Black Cove, Angus." (presumably "Britain's Royal Families, The Complete Genealogy" by Alison Weir, Pimlico, 1996.)
  • The Henry Project, quoting "Constantinus macKynat xv a. reg. et interemptus est a Noruagensibus in bello de Merdo fatha et sepultus in Iona insula."; it translates "Noruagensibus" as "Norwegians", which is fairly indicative but might have been used to describe all Vikings or "Norsemen".
