9781904607946: Mighty Subjects: The Dunbar Earls in Scotland c.1072-1289

Tracing the heritage of Gospatric—the former earl of Northumbria who was granted the fortress of Dunbar and the lands in Lothian in the late 11th century by Malcolm III, king of Scots—this concise account examines how Gospatric's descendants became leading members of the Scottish aristocracy, conspicuous for their power and wealth as lords of vast estates in southeast Scotland. Drawing on evidence of their charters and contemporary chronicles, this lucid analysis spans the careers of seven successive earls at Dunbar from the period of the Norman Conquest of England to the eve of the Scottish Wars of Independence. Recreating the Dunbar lordship in 12th- and 13th-century Scotland by exploring the landscape and economy of the earldom, the web of social relationships, and the tug-of-war with the Church, this engaging chronicle provides glimpses of long-vanished castles and echoes of battles, crusades, tournaments, and sieges, ultimately uncovering the intriguing timeline of a great family in the evolving kingdom of the Scots.

Book Description John Donald Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Late in the eleventh century, Gospatric, former earl of Northumbria, was granted the fortress of Dunbar and the lands in Lothian surrounding it by Malcolm III, king of Scots. Gospatric s descendants, who came to be known as earls of Dunbar, became leading members of the Scottish aristocracy, conspicuous for their power and wealth as lords of vast estates in south-east Scotland and beyond. Drawing on the evidence of their charters and contemporary chronicles, this book spans the careers of seven successive earls at Dunbar from the period of the Norman Conquest of England to the eve of the Scottish Wars of Independence. It recreates and analyses the Dunbar lordship in twelfth- and thirteenth-century Scotland, exploring the landscape and the economy of the earldom, the web of human relationships within and out with the family, the tugs-of-war with the Church. There are traces of long-vanished castles, echoes of battle and fleeting glimpses of crusade and tournament and siege. This is a story of a great family in the evolving kingdom of the Scots, cross-border lords who gave unambiguous allegiance to the Scottish Crown, mighty subjects of successive Scottish kings.
