The Clan Alpine, usually called "Siol Ailpein", was the name given to a number of clans claiming Royal descent. These included the MacGregors, MacNabs, Grants and MacQuarries. King Alpine, who was murdered after defeating the Picts in 834, is claimed as the ancestor of the MacAlpine clans. Be this as it may, the name Alpine is an ancient one in Scottish history. The history of the clan is obscure, but the name is recorded in 1260 in Perthshire. In 1405, a Mordac MacKalpy was given permission by the King of England to attend the schools of Oxford and Cambridge. Early Gaelic poems refer to St Patrick as Padruig MacAlpain.
