  • Notes 
    • Stewart Baldwin: "[A]ncestor of the Cenél Loairn branch of Dál Riata. [Note: Although the later genealogies make Loarn a son of Erc, and brother of Fergus, ancestor of the later kings of Scotland, there is no good reason to believe that the supposed sibling relationship is historical, as discussed in detail by Bannerman in SHD. Loarn is given in some king lists as king of Dál Riata before Fergus (see, for example, 'The Poem A Eolcha Alban Uile', edited by Kenneth Jackson in Celtica 3 (1956), 149-67), but it is unclear whether or not this is to be regarded as historical fact, or as a late invention of the Cenél Loairn.]"
