The House of Alpin is a dynasty of Scottish kings who ruled Pictland, later Alba, from 843 to 1034. Its name derives from the patronym of Kenneth MacAlpin (Cináed mac Ailpín), king of the Picts and first of the dynasty which created Alba. Máel Coluim II was the last descendant of Alpin in the male line to be king, subsequent kings claiming descent in the female line. The relationship of Eochaid and Giric to previous kings is uncertain.
