Messalina,(c. 17/20–48) was third wife of Roman Emperor Claudius. She was a cousin of Nero, a second-cousin of Caligula, and a great-grandniece of Augustus. A powerful and influential woman with a reputation as sexually insatiable, the most famous story being that of her all-night sex competition with a famous prostitute. She allegedly conspired against her husband and was executed on the discovery of the plot. Her notorious reputation arguably results from political bias.

The centre of administration of the Pictish kingdom in the 9th century was Forteviot on the River Earn. Close by the Dunkeld, King Kenneth MacAlpin (Cináed mac Ailpín) set up a new religious centre about 850AD. This was an acknowledgement of the fact that Iona was now no longer tenable as a religious capital, although the monastery was eventually re-established and it remained the burial place of Pictish kings until the time of Donald Ban.
