name =Uurad (possibly Ferat or Feradach)
King of the Picts
successor =Bridei son of Uurad|
Uurad or Ferat son of Bargoit (died 842?) was king of the
Picts, perhaps from 839 onwards.
No two versions of the king-lists known as the
Pictish Chroniclegive exactly the same version of his name. ["Early Sources", p. cxxvii.] Ferat, or Uurad in Pictish, is the most common reading, but Feradach may be intended. [In the case of Alpín, Uuroid is read as Feradach.] Thomas Owen Clancy's interpretation of the Drosten Stonewould make Ferat one of only two Pictish monarchs, the other being Caustantín mac Fergusa, whose name is read on a Pictish stone.
One version of the origin tale of
St Andrewsstates that it was written by one Thana son of Dudabrach, at Meigle, in the reign of "Pherath son of Bergeth". ["Early Sources", p. 266, note 2.]
