Maol Choluim I, Earl of Fife

Mormaer Maol Choluim of Fife (1204 - 1228), or Máel Coluim anglicanized as Malcolm, was one of the more obscure Mormaers of Fife. He married Matilda, the daughter of Gille Brigte, the Mormaer of Strathearn. He is credited with the foundation of Culross Abbey. He was succeeded by his nephew Maol Choluim II upon his death, probably in 1228.
