ANGUS I

HUSBAND:
ANGUS I. (Óengus Olmucaid)(Aengus Olmucada).
Son of FIACHADH.

Óengus Olmucaid (or Aengus Olmucada), son of Fíachu Labrainne, was, according to medieval Irish legend and historical tradition, a High King of Ireland. During the reign of his father, he conquered Scotland. He came to power by killing the incumbent High King, Eochu Mumu, who had killed his father twenty-one years earlier. He fought many battles against the Cruithne, the Fir Bolg, the Fomorians and other peoples of Ireland, the people of the Orkney islands, and even the Longobardi. He was killed by Enna Airgdech, son of Eochu Mumu, in the battle of Carman. Geoffrey Keating, who interprets his epithet as meaning "great hogs", dates his reign to 1050–1032 BC, the Annals of the Four Masters to 1428–1410 BC. (S1).
