Legendary

Recently, Prince Michael of Albany has produced a genealogy that shows the descent of the Royal House of Stewart, as well as the lineage of the native Princes of Wales, from Eochaid I of Ireland. While not as unreliable as Bishop Ussher’s Chronology, there being an element of truth in it, this pedigree chart combines known persons with mythical events and situations – hence it being legendary.
