THE HIGH KING

tara_stone

I did research on my Irish ancestors and discovered that during the 7th and 8th centuries, Ireland was divided up into several petty kingdoms. However, every once in a while these kingdoms would be united under the authority of a single High King with all of the other kings answering to him. This picture is of Tara Hill, where all High Kings of Ireland were crowned. To draw inspiration from my Irish roots, I am planning on developing a similar feudal hierarchy for the world in my fantasy book.
