Nectan IV, King of the Picts

VIII Century
An associate of St. Ceolfrid and the addressee of Ceolfrid's famous letter on the Paschal controversy, Nectan IV was responsible for the Picts' adopting the Nicene date of Easter. He abdicated the throne and retired to a monastery in 724, but returned to active involvement in politics during the civil wars which erupted a few years later.
