Talorc III

Talorc son of Foith or son of Uuid (died 653) was a king of the Picts from 641 to 653.

The Pictish Chronicle king lists give him a reign of twelve years following his brother Bruide II. A third brother, Gartnait III, was king before Bruide.

His death is reported by the Annals of Ulster and the Annals of Tigernach. He was followed by Talorgan son of Eanfrith.
