Notes for Eochaidh II Of Argyll King Of Dal Riata

Weis' "Ancestral Roots. . ." (170:9).

the following is taken from an Internet posting of Michael R. Davidson of Edinburgh. Scotland, on 23 Oct 1995:

Eochaid mac Domangart

Eochaid succeeded to a kingship in turmoil in 697. In 695, Domnall Donn, the king of Dal Riata and Eochaid's father's cousin was killed by the Cenel Loairn, a rival branch of the Dal Riata. The Cenel Loairn claimant, Ferchar Fota, was then recognized as king of Dal Riata. When Ferchar died in 697, Eochaid briefly held the kingship, until he was, in turn, killed by the Cenel Loairn. Ferchar's son Ainbcellach succeeded in the kingship.

Eochaid Riannamail "Crook-nose" mac Domangart

Eochaid mac Domangairt (died ca. 697) was a king of Dál Riata (modern western Scotland) in about 697. He was a member of the Cenél nGabráin, the son of Domangart mac Domnaill and father of Eochaid mac Echdach; Alpín mac Echdach may also be a son of this Eochaid.

He is named in Dál Riata king-lists, the Duan Albanach and the Synchronisms of Flann Mainistrech. In some sources he is called Eochaid Crook-Nose (Riannamail), but modern readings take this is a being a garbled reference to Fiannamail ua Dúnchado rather than an epithet.

The killing of Eochu nepos Domnaill, Eochaid grandson of Domnall Brecc, is reported in the Annals of Ulster for 697.
