David I: Scotland's Unappreciated Monarch

A new study by Richard Oram of the University of Stirling in Scotland depicts Scotland's King David as a great state-builder who had a major impact on British history.

David I, according to Oram, modernized the country, introduced coinage, extended the country's borders, reformed the church, and established monasteries, all of which should place him in the ranks of Britain's greatest kings.
