The Scotichronicon is a 15th-century chronicle or legendary account, by the Scottish historian Walter Bower. It is a continuation of historian-priest John of Fordun's earlier work Chronica Gentis Scotorum beginning with the founding of Ireland and thereby Scotland by Scota with Goídel Glas. Queen Scota's name means "blossom" in Irish and Scottish Gaelic. Scotti was once a synonym for Irish, indicating that they (Irish and Scots) are "people of the blossom," or descendants of Queen Scota.
