:oops::-P:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "MACDONALD (of the Isles)"

Greatest and most widespread of all, Clan Donald has its main roots in the old Gaelic and Pictish times, with additions from the Norsemen just when the curtain of history begins lifting on personalities. There is a legendary ancestor Conn of the Battles, but the first clear one is Somerled, the thane of Argyll to become wellnigh an independent king of the 'South Isles' (from Ardnamurchan round to Bute), swaying his naval alliance between the rival powers of Scotland and Norway. In 1135 he availed David I to expel the Norse from Arran and Bute, and eventually fell at Renfew in 1164 when himself invading against Malcolm IV. Of his three sons by a daughter of Olaf, Norse king of the Isle of Man, the eldest founded the MacDougall clan of Lorn, and the next son Raginald or Ranald was ancestor to all the clans that derive name from his eldest son Donald.
[...]MacDonald allegiance to the Scottish crown was now unquestionable--so far as it could be induced or enforced. Bruce at Bannockburn granted the clan their jealously upheld honour of position on right of the Scottish battle-array: and in the following reign Angus Mor's grandson John of Islay reunited the North and South Isles by marrying the MacRorie heiress, and first assumed the Lordship of the Isles[...]After 1493[...]Chiefship shifted to the Sleat branch in Skye, called MacDonalds of the Isles, to distiguish them from the branch-clans.
The numerous sept names have various origins[...] Small clans or families sought or fell under the MacDonald protection, or like the MacBeths took high service with the chiefs.

• "MACDONALD of Clanranald"

Strictly, all the MacDonald clans are of Clan Ranald and were frequently so termed, from Donald's father Reginald or Ranald. Thus some confusion arises when a particular branch-clan adopts that general name,[...] (Specifically of Clanranald) They derive from another Ranald, doubly descended from the first, being a younger son of John, first Lord of the Isles[...]
