Example text

This demanded the establishment of a pedigree which would underline the position of Mac Cailein Mor as a great Highland Chief, a Gael among Gaels and a fit successor to the Lord of the Isles in that position. Such a pedigree would then support his claim for acceptance at the Scottish Court, where Norman or Flemish blood was considered desirable rather than that of wild and uncivilised savages from beyond the Highland line. These obstacles were overcome not without considerable difficulty; and the ‘official’ pedigree, with all its faults in content and with its composition in impressionistic rather than detailed representational terms, nevertheless gave the Campbell chiefs the respectability of descent which their ambitions required.

The pedigrees all included a ‘Duine’, ‘Duino’, ‘Duibhne’ or whatever the spelling used further dignified in the later two versions as being ‘the great’. In MS 1467, the words a quo (‘from whom’) indicate that it is from this person that the Campbells took their early style of the Clan O’Duine. The mythical Diarmid was styled ‘Diarmid O’Duine’, and it may well have been this coincidence which led to the addition of his name to the pedigree. As a hero of the most popular series of stories that circulated round the fireside, he would do the Campbell name little but good.

And whatever the inheritance was, splitting it into two, thus necessitating two marriages before the whole of Lochawe is included in the Chief ’s property, seems to be an unlikely addition to the tale. The introduction meanwhile of the significantly named Evah or Eve, the ultimate symbolic name for a female, made possible the claim that the Campbells had been on Lochaweside since the dawn of time, which they clearly had not. Although it can be little more than speculation, my suggestion would be that Evah and her father never existed and that there was only one marriage, the other heiress being Dervail MacFiachar.
