So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

    • Fifth Generation: Reginald, Lord of the Isles, died in 1207. He married Fonia (RIN #6755), daughter of the Earl of Moray. (James B. Paul: "Scots Peerage," Vol. V, pp. 21-32.) (Descent of the McDanells, McDonalds, McBrides and Somerled - Year 1100 all come from the same original name.) Paul, his son was Hoakon, Earl of the Orkneys; his daughter was Ingibjorg IV who married Olaf Bitling, King of the Southern Isles; his her son Ragnhilda who married Somerharlidh, King of Argyll. about 1157; and their three sons were: Eufgall, Ergus, and Raghnall. Raghnall had a son Donal, and Donal had a son Aenghus Mor MacDomhnaill (circa 1263) and Aenghus had a son by the same name (Aenghus Og who died in 1325; Aenghus Og who died in 1325 had a son Eoin (RIN 98216) who married Margaret, daughter of Robert II of Scotland. Eoin (98216) and Margaret (RIN23517) had four children- 1. Donnel of Isla c. 1411 2. Alastar Carrach 3. Marcus who was the ancestor of the MacDonnells of Knocknacloy of Colttyar?? 4. Eoin Mor md. abt 1400 to Margery Bissett her became the ancestor of the Earls of Antrim (RIN38642) -------------------------------- Weaving the Tapestry pg 2 of 11 pages - Somerled is said to have left a grandson, Somerled, son of Gillecolane, who inherited Argyll but was defeated and slain by Alexander II in 1221, also three sons by his second marriage, Dugald to whom he left Lorne and his more northern possessions and who became ancestor of the MacDougalls of Lorne, Reginald who obtained Kintyre, Cowal, Isla, Arran, and Bute, and a third son Angus, who obtained the great Lordship of Garmoran, the actual bounds of which are not now certain. It is from the younger son Reginald, that the MacDonalds of he Isles and all the branches of the name of descended Reginald had two sons who between them, in the year 1210, slew their uncle Angus, and possessed themselves of his patrimony of Garmoran. The elder of the two, Donald, succeeded his father in possession of Kintyre and the outer Isles, and carried on the main line of the race. The younger brother, Roderick, got Bute, Arran, and Garmoran. It is probably he who figures in the legend of Rothesay Castle enshrined on the balland of "The Bluidy Stair. " We know at any rate that the struggle for the possession of Bute and its stronghold went on between the Stewarts and the descendants of Somerled with varying fortunes till about the time of the battle of Largs in 1263. The last of the line of Roderick or Ruari, was Amy, the first wife of John, Chief of Clan Donald and Lord of the Isles, of whom more presently. ---------------------------------- King of the South Isles Reigned 1164-1207 - Before he became Ri Innse Gall -- the Ruler of the Isles of the Norsemen -- Somerled was Ri Airir Goidel -- Ruler of the Coastland of the Gael-Lorn in Argyll, Mull, Tiree and Coll. This territory passed to his eldest son, Dugall, and to Clan Dugall. Somerled's other two sons by the daughter of the Norse king of Man were Angus and Reginald. Angus received Bute and probably part of Arran as his inheritance, but when he and his three sons were killed, his territories were claimed by Reginald, who had inherited Kintyre and Isley. Reginald had two sons -- Donald, the founder of Clan Donald, and Ruairi. Clan Donald held the mainland territories of Kintyre, Morvern and Ardnamurchan with the island of Islay. Clan Ruairi became Lords of Gamoran, stretching from Knoydart to Moidart on the mainland and including the islands of Eigg and Rhum, to which were later added Barra, Uist and St Kilda. The title Ri Innse Gall apparently denoted over lordship of these related kindred and alternated among their leaders. Towards the close of the thirteenth century, the Clan Dugall opposed the claim of Robert the Bruce to the Crown of Scotland and forfeited most of their lands after the Wars of Independence. John of Islay, of Clan Donald, married the Clan Ruairi heiress, Amie, bringing Clan Ruairi's lands under Clan Donald, control. To strengthen his position as the first Lord of the Isles, John subsequently divorced Amie and married Margaret, daughter of the heir to the throne of Scotland. So the owner of Somerled's line became vested in Clan Donald. By the time of his death in 1387, John, as Lord of the Isles, controlled the whole of the Hebrides from Lewis to Islay, with the exception of Skye, and the mainland from Kintyre to Knoydart. Around 1400, one of John's sons, John Mor, married an heiress of the Glens of Antrim, bringing new territories in the north of Irelandto Clan Donald. And in 1411 at the Battle of Harlaw, Donald, second Lord of the Isles, attempted to uphold his wife's claim to the Earldom of Ross, which included Skye. Their son, Alexander, third Lord of the Isles, was eventually recognized as the Earl of Ross after 1438. It was during the time of Alexander that Clan Donald's ventures to increase their power, notably the audacious treaty with Edward IV of England in 1461, brought them into increasing conflict with the Scottish Crown. By the time of John, the fourth and last Lord of the Isles, the 'Highlanders' had become a political nuisance and John was forced to forfeit his title. It was restored on promise of good behavior in 1476, but finally lost in 1492. Over the next fifty years, leaders of different branches of Clan Donald led at least seven major risings in attempts to restore the Lordship, the last of which, under Domhnall Dubh, ended with his death in 1545. But the ideal of the Lordship lived on, influencing the political strategy of the MacDonald leaders in the Montrose Wars in the mid-1600s, and in the Jacobite Risings of 1715 and 1745. Gaelic poetry continued to draw inspiration from the memory of Gaelic nationhood, reaching its fullest expression during the Jacobite Risings, and reverberating still in twentieth century oral tradition.
