Ireland Calling !!

Hello Everyone.

My username on this forum is Breffney. I grew up in the ancient kingdom of Breifne (old Irish name) which is located in the North West of Ireland.

While I have an interest in most of the European royals my favourite royals are Albert & Charlene of Monaco and Felipe & Letizia of Spain.

Hello everyone!
I'm new here. I grew up in Canada and first became interested in Royalty when I combined genealogy and my history degree. I have finished half of my family tree and it was a slight shock. I am descended from the first Irish Royals , the O'conner clan through my maternal grandmother and am a distant cousin to a Fraser clan chief and a Macdonald clan lord ( lord of the isles). Also descended from the Bendictine monk who built an abbey at Languedoc. There are two things I am currently trying to figure out: 1) which Royal Stuart name I found on the ancestral tree it is and which Macdonald married them. We're they illigetimate or not? Etc.. 2) Rumored to be descended from Louis XIV somehow..Unsure about that.

Thank you so much. I found it so overwhelming when I found out about a year to two years ago after finishing my family tree, and am still trying to finish it. The problem is the Royal Stuart married to Annabelle Macdonald daughter of the Clan Macdonald Lord of the Isles , somewhere in the 13-16th century is unnamed so I have no idea if they were Legitimate or not. Also, the relation to the Bourbon family ( royals of France) may just be a rumor.. I have found no evidence yet.. But I will keep looking!

Hello Stormshadow,

Forgive me for not replying until now. Due to family circumstances I have been away from the forum for the past 2 months.

Gosh, I am so excited to hear that you are descended from the great O'Conner / O'Connor clan .... the Last High Kings of Ireland.

You may be aware of the website listed below. ?

It is the ancestral home of the O'Connors. It is now a stately guest house. It is fabulous. Loads of pictures of your ancestors adorn the walls. The coronation stone which was used for the crowning of the king is on site.

My sister and I spent three days there two years ago. The host and hostess (and custodians of the house), Pyers & Marguerite O'Connor-Nash are the loveliest people on earth. So very friendly and welcoming. Pyers spent a lot of time showing us pictures, letters, telling us about different family members. It is truly a wonderful family that you belong to.

Oh wow! Thanks so much! I found our clan tartan and everything else, but couldn't find where they lived.
It's so nice to hear that it's been restored as well and is being used to educate people on the clans of Ireland.
I love that idea. Also, I am going into medieval history so the website will help a great deal.

I think I see a trip to Ireland soon! :) Yay!

Thanks again. Also I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed yourself immensely .
