Niall and the Reconstructed Genealogy


This genealogy of the ancestors of High King Niall of the Nine Hostages is one that I have reconstructed from the numerous sources taking into account the confusion due to women and men being confused and father-in-laws and son-in-laws being confused with sons and fathers. Also there is often confusion of identity with people whose stories come from two different locations being remembered as two different people rather than one.
