Title: Irony -
Post by: LionRampant on September 08, 2018, 11:24:53 pm
Has anyone noticed that Pons, Prince of Pardiac, was the Connaiti lord who supplied Loris and Gorony with mercenaries during the Mearan uprising?  I think it's ironic he hired his men out to the same armies that eventually led to his own daughter being raped (Janniver).  Talk about bad karma.

I was working on an idea I had for a story about Saron MacGregor turning down the opportunity to hire out his own men for the same cause, and stumbled across this in the Codex.  I'm also thinking about how he approached Kelson for restoration of Ebor.

I'm not sure the story is going to get anywhere, but I find I'm fascinated by the MacGregors.  [Perhaps, it's that I have some MacGregor ancestry of my own.  ;)]

I'd never noticed that!  And it would be cool to get a story about the MacGregors!

Love to read a story with the MacGregor's as a focal point.  I was always fond of Jesse MacGregor in the years of the Reagents.

I have not done any research on the MacGregor family tree. However I do have an ancestry list from my Codex studies that has some of the family listed. I will give it to you in hopes that it is of some use in your research.

 Earl Rhygan MacDinan  Earl of Ebor (851-875) Youngest son of Dinan,  died 875
   Earl Rhirid MacDinan Earl of Ebor (875-888) oldest son of Rhygan,  died 888
     Earl Gregory Siannon MacDinan Earl of Ebor (888-917) Count of Trevalga (918-932)
       Born: 16 Jan 875 eldest son and heir,  died: 10 Feb 932
        Count Jesse MacGregor born: 29 Jan 901 Eldest son and heir of Gregory
        Lord Geoffrey MacGregor
        Lord Hilary MacGregor
        Lady Mireille MacGregor
        Lady Seanna MacGregor
        ~Married Sir Aldin McCarthy


Count Jesse MacGregor Count of Trevalga (932-981) Born: 29 January 901, Died: 8 October 981
~Married Lady Tiarna MacMurray 12 April 930
   Count Murray MacGregor eldest son and heir
   Lady Maible MacGregor
   Lord Maelis MacGregor
   Lady Malvina MacGregor
   Lord Matadin MacGregor
   Lord Macrory Macgregor
   Lady Moyra MacGregor

Count Murray MacGregor Count of Trevalga (981- 1002)
  Count Ebor MacGregor   Count o Trevalga (1002-1029)
    Count Bonald MacGregor  Count of Trevalga (1029- 1055)
       Count Murrow MacGregor Count of Trevalga (1055-1066)
       Count Tristan MacGregor Count of Trevalga (1066-1092)
         Count Grady MacGregor Count of Trevalga (1092-1114)
             Count Saron MacGregor Count of Trevalga (1114-1130+)

       Lady Lune MacGregor  Daughter of Bonald
      ~Married Lord Guiscard De Courcy
          Lord Michon Etienne Estephe de Courcy Son and heir of Guiscard
              born 11 May 1030 died 30 October 1097
          ~ Married Lady Sylphe MacAthan “Best guess” Married on 1 May 1055
                Lady Charolys de Courcy
                Lord Aurelien de Courcy  eldest son and heir
                ~Married Lady Sieffina MacAthan
                Lord Jehoram de Courcy
                Lady Micheline de Courcy
                Lord fenelon de Courcy
                Lady Chablys de Courcy.

Edited the list to follow the counts of Trevalga. Previously, I had followed the family line due to the de Courcy and the MacAthan marriages.

Fascinating. I missed that.

You could always just post a scene or two of your story to get our imaginations going. That would be great.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I may post if I can get it far enough!
