History Edit

In 989, the Viking Sitric Silkbeard became King of Dublin. Following the first Leinster Revolt in 1000, however, his position was undermined by the political machinations of the Irish-born King Brian Boru of Munster. In 1014, the Battle of Clontarf was fought in Clontarf, Dublin. (AUDIO: The Book of Kells)

In 1769, the future Duke of Wellington was born in Dublin to an influential, if hard-up, aristocratic Anglo-Irish family. His name was Wesley – the Honourable Arthur Wesley, to be precise. Later the family name reverted to its original form, Wellesley. (PROSE: World Game)
