The article provides a historical account of the Battle of Glenshiel in England and Scotland. Determined to restore a Stuart king to the British throne, James Keith, younger brother of George Keith, the 10th Earl of Marischal, Ranald MacDonald of Clanranald and John Cameron of Locheil, chief of the Camerons had expected considerable support from Spain, which was to invade England while they rebelled in Scotland. The Stuart dynasty had become unpopular because of its poor leadership and adherence to the Catholic faith--and the Jacobite Rebellion of 1689 ended in bloody failure.
