RED indicates lines of descent from EGBERT, King of Wessex, the first King of all England. By her marriage to King Henry I, Matilda, daughter of Malcolm III, King of Scots, by St Margaret, not only brought back to the English throne the blood of its early kings, but also brought the blood of the ancient Scottish kings. The colour RED shows how this has been perpetuated down the centuries (but only along lines that are fully represented in these tables).

AZURE is used for the dates of the reigns, and the line of successive reigns can be seen clearly by following the numerical order of the years.
