CHARLIE & FLORA
BONNIE PRINCE CHARLIE according to WIKI
“Charles Edward Louis John Casimir Sylvester Severino Maria Stuart
(31 Dec 1720 – 31 Jan 1788) commonly known in Britain during his lifetime as The Young Pretender and The Young Chevalier, and often known in retrospective accounts as Bonnie Prince Charlie, was the second Jacobite pretender to the thrones of England, Scotland, France and Ireland (as Charles III) from the death of his father in 1766. This claim was based on his status as the eldest son of James Francis Edward Stuart, himself the son of James VII and II. Charles is perhaps best known as the instigator of the unsuccessful Jacobite uprising of 1745, in which he led an insurrection to restore his family to the throne of Great Britain. The uprising ended in defeat at the Battle of Culloden, effectively terminating the Jacobite cause. Jacobites supported the Stuart claim because they hoped for religious toleration for Roman Catholics and because they believed in the divine right of kings. Charles’s flight from Scotland after the uprising has rendered him a romantic figure of heroic failure in some later representations. In 1759 he was involved in a French plan to invade Britain, which was abandoned after British naval victories.“
WIKI “disguised as her Irish maid, “Betty Burke”, in a small boat. In this way he evaded capture and left the country aboard the French frigate L’Heureux, arriving back in France in September.
Charles’s flight has become the stuff of legend and is commemorated in songs like the Skye Boat Song. The Jacobite rebellion inspired MANY songs in fact. One of my favourites is Ye Jacobites
Any hoo, back to the point!! Flora….
WIKI “Her father died when she was a child, and her mother was abducted and married by Hugh MacDonald of Armadale, Skye. She was brought up under the care of the chief of her clan, the Macdonalds of Clanranald her father’s cousin”
As you can see from the MAP below, Armadale is just across the water from Mallaig, the ferry does in fact go from Mallaig to Armadale Pier, It is a very short crossing only 25 mins. I could swim it! (or well… i’d like to think i could!! But am no gonnae be puting it to the test anytime soon!!)
Mallaig of course is the final destination of both the West Highland way, the West Highland line & the Jacobite Steam train’s destination. (see part 1)
There is a statue of Flora at the front of Inverness Castle & contratry to what my mum told us as children, she IS NOT throwing a ball for her dog!!!
She is looking towards Skye. Waiting for her love Charlie… There’s even a Highland dance named Flora MacDonald’s Fancy!!
I thought Charlie was gay but apparently not!
Back to Flora!! She isnt the first MacDonald to be mention as in part one I covered the fact the Glenfinnan monument was erected in 1815 by Alexander MacDonald as a tribute to the loyal Jacobites who rallied behind Charlie! & there will be more MacDonalds popping up later on!!
WIKI “The Prince’s Cairn marks the traditional spot on the shores of Loch nan Uamh in Lochaber from which he made his final departure from Scotland. With the Jacobite cause lost, Charles spent the remainder of his life — except for one brief, secret visit to London — on the continent.”
Culloden Battlefield Memorial Cairn
In 1881 Duncan Forbes erected a memorial cairn at Dalcross, which is 20 feet (6.1 m) tall to the memory of Scottish Highlanders that fell at the Battle of Culloden on 16 April 1746, aimed to further the Jacobite cause for Charles Stuart to become the King of Scotland. The battle on Culloden Moor was both quick and bloody, taking place within an hour. Following an unsuccessful Highland charge against the government lines, the Jacobites were routed and driven from the field.

THE MACCABEES & PYRAMID MEMORIALS
MACcabees thats just like all the Scottish clan names that begin with MAC!
The Lost Tombs Of The Maccabees’
Few ancient sites in the Holy Land have ignited the imagination like the lost tombs of the Maccabees, the family that led a Jewish rebel army to victory against Seleucid religious repression in the second century BCE.
Beginning more than 140 years ago, travelers, clergymen and enthusiastic scholars of varying levels of religious fervor and competence have been looking for the tomb site – described in contemporary sources as a magnificent Hellenistic monument that included pyramids and ships of carved stone and could be seen by sailors on the Mediterranean Sea, 18 miles away. The complex was one of the greatest man-made landmarks in ancient Judea.
No trace of it has ever been found.
COULD THEY BE IN SCOTLAND??
JACOB, HEBREW(s) & CELTS
The word Hebrew means Israelite. Celts called themselves Iberi, Hiberi, or Iveri which are all derived from the Biblical Hebrew pronounciation of the name Hebrew.
Celts as Israelites. Called Themselves Hebrews. http://hebrewnations.com/articles/biblical-proof/attributes/hebrewcelts.html
