In 1010, at the Battle of Barrie, the Danish General Camus was despatched to Valhalla by a Chatti warrior. Malcolm II pushed his hand into Camus and drew three bloody fingers down the warrior’s shield. “Camus Slayer” became his name.
In 1018 Malcolm won Lothian in the Battle of Chathem and let the lands of Keth to Camus Slayer.
