7 : Archibald Campbell, 5th Earl of Argyll (c. 1537–1573) Suppressing “Idolatori and all monumentis thairof”. “Bombarded with cannon”. His ‘army’ was bigger than that of England and France : Archibald Campbell, 8 th Earl and 1st Marquess of Argyll (1607–1661). Effective ruler of Scotland; Leader of “Committee of Estates”. “Leader in Council and in Field for The Reformed Religion”; Overthrew “some of the finest monuments of the monastery and the altars”; “dispersed” the valuable, irreplaceable library. “I set the Crown on the King’s Head, He Hastens me to a better Crown than his own” (!)

8 A SAD, SYMBOLIC IMAGE OF THE ENTWINED FATE OF CLAN DONALD AND IONA 16 th –17 th Centuries. THEIR VANQUINSHED SEA KINGDOM AND DIOCESE OF THE ISLES. “The Cathedral at Iona” - mid 1815, by ‘the masterly” William Daniell, Royal Academician,

9 NOTE : IF THE LORDSHIP OF THE ISLES WAS NOT FORFEITED AND COLLAPSED 1493, THEN THE REFORMATION WOULD HAVE SEEN ALL THE ABBEY’S ASSETS RETURNED EFFECTIVELY TO UNDER CLAN DONALD’S HEADSHIP CONTROL - Act of Convention of Estates, (Local MacLeans only as vassals: factor, bailiff, agent.) THAT IS, RIGHTLY AND JUSTLY TO THOSE WHO FOUNDED, BUILT AND ENDOWED THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE AND CONTINUED FOR 300 YEARS – THE CLAN DONALD CHIEFS. NOT TO INTERLOPERS AND USURPERS…… “ MOLESTING THE CONVENT” , James IV. and “VIOLENLY INTRUDING IN POSSESSION OF IONA” , Charles I. (MacLean JP, History of Clan MacLean; pps.325 and 329; 1899)
