Brief Clan History

The most powerful of the Scottish clans, and claiming a descent from the ancient High Kings of Ireland, the Campbells and their many branches experienced both great fortune and tragic misfortune.

The clan was first settled in Argyll in the early thirteenth century, and went on to gain high honours and titles, including Earldom of Argyll. The 10th Earl received a dukedom in 1701.

Clan Campbell is Highland Scottish clan. Historically one of the largest, most powerful and most successful of the Highland clans, their lands were in Argyll and the chief of the clan became the Earl and later Duke of Argyll.

The Clan Campbell were powerful in the West of Scotland and in Argyllshire. Known as the race of Diarmid, they received the Lordship of Lochow in the 13th century. Colin Campbell of Lochow, progenitor of the Campbells of Argyll, was knighted in 1280.

Later chiefs were Earls of Argyll and in 1701 William of Orange conferred a Dukedom on the 10th Earl. The 9th Earl was beheaded in 1685 for his part in the Monmouth Rebellion.

The Campbells took a prominent part in the affairs of state and held high positions, including Hereditary Lord Justice General and Admiral of the Western Coasts and Isles of Scotland. The 9th Duke married H.R.H. Princess Louise, daughter of Queen Victoria, in 1871.
