Douglas Richardson, in December 2002 and August 2003, reported work by Andrew MacEwen, who concluded on chronological grounds that Malcolm married twice, firstly by July 1237 an unidentified daughter of Llewellyn, who was the mother of his sons Colban and Macduff , and secondly Helen, who survived him and remarried to Donald.
