This chapter discusses the British kingdoms in early historical Scotland with emphasis on the kingdom of Strathclyde, with its great citadel at Dumbarton Rock. This study attempts to provide some detail about its individual rulers, together with a narrative of the development and decline of the kingdom from the post-Roman period until its incorporation into the wider kingdom of the Scots.
