Giric (r. 878-889)

The father of Giric is disputed; most historians claim that his father was a man called Dungal.

He seems to have ruled jointly with Eochaid, who does not appear on the early lists of kings but had some claim to the Pictish throne. Giric invaded Northumbria at least once. He died at Dundurn, in Perthshire, in 889.
