Early Ireland: From Chieftains to High-Kings (Online Course Preview - Lecture 21)

April 2, 2016


There were four primary grades of king in early Ireland.

The most common of these was a simple '' or King of a Túath, but these lesser kings often in turn owed tribute to kings of higher-grades, such as a Rí-Túath-Mór or a King of a Province.

 

 


Ultimately this chain of tribute and submission ended with the highest grade of kingship - the Ard Rí na hÉireann, High-King of all Ireland.

In this Lecture, we'll explore these primary grades in a bit more detail.
