Brúnn Brúnnson (c. 940 - May 12, 990) was the first king of Brúnnland, a state established in northwestern Scotland following the annexation of the Danelaw in Anglia. Brúnnson was the son of Brúnn, himself the son of King Sigforth "The Last" of Northumbria. Sigfroth was overthrown by Anglish forces in 942. Brúnn died in approximately 950 after he and his family fled to Scotland. Twenty-three years later, Brúnn's son founded the Kingdom of Brúnnland, named after himself and his father.
