Art Mac Cuinn

Synopsis

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Art mac Cuinn (son of Conn), also known as Art #xD3;enfer (literally one man, used in the sense of lone, solitary, or only son), was, according to medieval Irish legend and historical tradition, a High King of Ireland. According to legend, he was not Conn's only son: he had a brother called Connla, who fell in love with a fairy woman, and went with her to Mag Mell, never to be seen again. After that, Art was alone and gained his nickname (Geoffrey Keating says he had two brothers, Connla and Crionna, who were killed by their uncle Eochaid Finn). Another fairy woman, B#xE9; Chuille, who had been banished to Ireland by the Tuatha D#xE9; Danann, fell in love with Art, but, when she learned his father Conn was still alive and a widower, agreed to marry him instead, on the condition that Art be banished from Tara for a year. The injustice caused famine in Ireland, until Art forced by B#xE9; Chuille to leave as a forfeit in a game of fidchell. Art succeeded to the High Kingship after his brother-in-law Conaire C#xF3;em, was killed by Nemed, son of Sroibcenn, in the battle of Gruitine. He ruled for twenty or thirty years.
