I've noticed that every time someone wants to ridicule my claim they invariably bring up the same point...that I'm a king claimant. For me this begs the question, in an historical context what is a king? http://what-when-how.com/medieval-ireland/kings-and-kingship-medieval-ireland/ In this context a king isn't like the royal dynasties of Europe where there is one king with many nobles beneath him. There were many kingships in Ireland during this period. Being a king was equivalent to being a local warlord or what would later be defined as a feudal landlord. In a democracy the nearest equivalent I suppose would be a county council. Being a king was simply being at the forefront of the political structure at the time. If someone claimed to be a twentieth century politician in a past life would they face as much ridicule as I've faced for claiming to be a tenth century 'politician'? Obviously a medieval king was a warrior king so they wore more hats than being a mere politician but I think my point is valid. Also subject to ridicule is my claim to have been the most successful of these kings. I ask you...if I am who I claim to have been in the early twentieth century is it any great stretch of the imagination to think that I was just as successful ( arguably more successful ) in the late tenth and early eleventh century as I was in the twentieth century? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Boru I only became king because my brother was murdered. I only became high king through tactics and psychology. I only succeeded at what I did in my current life on a different field of battle through the same type of abilities. I have many memories from that period in history, more so than of my other lives, yet I've been consistently scuppered in discussing them because of the assumption that a king was an uncommon occurance back then. My first memory from that period is of when my brother, Mathgamain, and myself had a conversation about my deciding to continue to fight in spite of my brother wishes because he had brokered a peace. He looked at me like I was crazy. I've seen that look many a time in my past and current lives. It seems that I've always pushed the boundaries of what others were willing to do. What I did was equivalent to what I did in the early twentieth century because I also employed guerilla warfare tactics during this period. Does anyone else have medieval memories and how do you all feel about king claimants? Are they overshooting in the grandiose claims department or were they merely incarnated leaders? Much like modern politicians, military men and the like.
