      History. In the early part of the first millennium AD, the predominant languages in the British Isles were Celtic. Britain was dominated by P-Celtic or Brythonic, whose modern descendants are Welsh, Cornish and Breton, whereas the population of Ireland predominantly spoke Q-Celtic or Goidelic, from which Scottish Gaelic, Irish Gaelic and Manx Gaelic are derived.

Cowan and R. Andrew MacDonald, eds., Alba: Celtic Scotland in the Medieval Era (E. Lothian: Tuckwell Press, ), pp. Somerled (Old Norse Sumarliði, Scottish Gaelic Somhairle (died ), commonly Anglicized from Gaelic as Sorley) was a military and political leader of the Scottish Isles in the 12th century who was known in Gaelic as ri Innse Gall ("King of the Hebrides").

His father was Gillebride of Clan Angus who had been exiled to Ireland.
