Family stories:Alpin II of Dalriada
Posted by: pamela winters on Sep 19 2010 21:48
Name Alpin II of Dalriada
Birth abt 778, Kintyre, Argyle, Scotland
Death 20 Jul 834, Galloway, Scotland
Father Eochaid IV “The Venomous” , King of Dalriada (~750-839)
Mother Urgusia ingen Fergusa of Dalriada (~755-)
Misc. Notes
Alpin II of Dalriada, also known as Alpin mac Eochaid was the father of
Kenneth I of Scotland and Donald I of Scotland who united the Kingdom of
the Scots and the Picts.
Little is known about Alpin other than that his father was Eochaid IV of
Dalriada, who has been called in some accounts the King "of Scotland".
This title was probably a ceremonial one.
He married a Scottish princess, who name is now no longer known, and had
two sons by her.
Alpin was certainly dead by 840, when his son, Kenneth, took the kingship
of Dalriada. A late source states that he died in 834 fighting the Picts in
Galloway. He did not succeed to the kingship.

Children Kenneth I (~810-859)

Name Aedan, King of Dalriada
Birth abt 535
Death abt 608
Father Gabhran , King of Dalriada (~500-558)
Misc. Notes
Aedan (or Aiden) (Scottish Gaelic: Áedán mac Gabráin) was king of Dál
Riata from about 574 to 606/608 and was allegedly over 70 at his death. He
was the son of Gabhran, king of Dál Riata, and became king after the death
of his kinsman, Conall, when he was crowned at Iona by Saint Columba. He
refused to allow his kingdom to remain dependent on Irish Dál Riata, but
coming into collision with his southern neighbours he led a large force
against Æthelfrith of Northumbria, and was defeated at the battle of
Degsastan, perhaps in Liddesdale.

Family stories:Battle of Mag Mucrama - Ireland's Early Kings
Posted by: pamela winters on Sep 19 2010 21:40

Cath Maige Mucrama



From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



The Cath Maige Mucrama (in English the Battle of Mag Mucrama), is an early Middle Irish language tale which forms part of the Cycles of the Kings.


Content

The cast includes several major figures from Irish pseudo-history, Ailill Aulom, his son Éogan Mór and his step- and foster-son Mac Con, along with the King of TaraArt mac Cuinn. Mag Mucrama, the plain of the counting of the pigs, was in Connacht, in the region of Athenry, County Galway. A tradition or folk etymology, in Irish dindshenchas, has it that the plain was named for the magical pigs which infested it until banished by Queen Medb of Connacht.[1]

Mac Con, exiled from Ireland, returns with the aid of the king of Britain, along with an army of Britons and Saxons, and conquers Ireland as far as Connacht where Éogan, with the help of Art mac Cuinn, plans to fight. The night before the battle Éogan and Art sleep with their hosts' daughters, conceiving the sons who will succeed them, Fiachu Muillethan in Éogan's case and Cormac mac Airt in Art's. Both Éogan and Art, as is foreseen, die in the battle at Mag Mucrama, and Mac Con becomes king of Tara.[2]

Mac Con takes Cormac mac Airt as his foster son, and rules for seven years. He then pronounces a false judgement, showing that he is unfit to rule, while Cormac gives a right judgment, showing that he is the stuff of kings. Disasters ensue—"no grass came through the earth, nor leaf on tree, nor grain in corn" says the story—and Mac Con is deposed and Cormac made king in his place. Mac Con travels to Ailill's court, where his foster-mother warns him that he is in peril. When Ailill embraces Mac Con he bites him with his poison tooth, wounding Mac Con, who flees but is killed by one of Ailill's warriors.[2]

Contexts

The earliest surviving manuscript containing the tale is in the Book of Leinster, dated to the middle 12th century. The most recent translator dates the tale in that form to the 9th century.[3]

The purpose of the tale is presumed to have been political, to explain, and to justify, how it came about that the descendants of Art, that is the Connachta, and of Éogan, the Eóganachta, occupied the leading political positions in Ireland—the Connachta and their offshoot the Uí Néill provided the High King of Ireland and the King of Connacht, the Eóganachta the King of Munster—when their ancestral figures had been defeated by Mac Con, whose own descendants the Corcu Loígde were no longer a force after the 7th century. As such it forms part of the common origin legends of the Uí Néill and the Eóganachta.[4] Mac Con belonged to the ancient Dáirine, who were cousins of the Ulaid. The ancestors of the Eóganachta are known as the Deirgtine.

Editions, translations, and adaptions

The Battle of Mag Mucrama has been translated by Whitley Stokes ("The Battle of Mag Mucrime", Revue Celtique, 13, 1892), by Standish O'Grady (included in Silva Gaedelica, 2 volumes, 1892) and by M. O'Daly in Cath Maige Mucrama: The Battle of Mag Mucrama (1975).[1] A modernization into modern Irish was published by Peadar Ua Laoghaire in 1917 as Lughaidh Mac Con.[5]
