The Irish Princess by Elizabeth Chadwick
A new insight and biography into the life of a largely unknown and forgotten 12th century Irish Princess 'Aoife/Eva of Leinster'
The daughter of Diarmait (Dermot) King Of Leinster who having being deposed invited a Normans army to Ireland to help him reclaim his kingdom and had his daughter Aoife married off to the Norman Lord 'Strongbow' (Richard de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke) as part of the alliance.
Soon after the wedding the Norman Invasion of Ireland began .
Much of the European Nobility and monarchs of both Scotland/England are descendants of Aoife and Strongbow .
