    History Ugaine "the Great" was the 66th Monarch of Ireland. He was called Mór on account of his extensive dominions, being sovereign of all the Islands of Western Europe. He was married to Cæsair, daughter of the King of France, and by her had issue, twenty two sons and three daughters. 
    In order to prevent these children encroaching on each other, he divided the Kingdom into twenty five portions, allotting to each his (or her) distinct inheritance. By means of this division the taxes of the country were collected during the succeeding 300 years. All the sons died without issue except two, Laeghaire Lorc, ancestor of all the Leinster Heremonians; and Cobthach Caolbhreagh, from whom the Heremonians of Leath Cuinn, Meath, Ulster, and Conacht derive their pedigree.
    In the early ages the Irish Kings made many military expeditions into foreign countries. Ugaine Mór, called by O'Flaherty in his Ogygia, "Hugonius Magnus", was contemporary with Alexander the Great [ed. note: Alexander the Great lived from 356 BC to 323 BC, dying at 33 years old from syphillis], and is stated to have sailed with a fleet into the Mediterranean, landed his forces in Africa, and also attacked Sicily, and having proceeded to Gaul, was married to Cæsair, daughter of the King of the Gauls.
    Hugonius was buried at Cruachan. The Irish sent, during the Punic wars, auxiliary troops to their Celtic Brethren, the Gauls, who in their alliance with the Carthaginians under Hannibal, fought against the Roman armies in Spain and Italy.
    Ugaine was at length, B.C. 593, slain by Badhbhchadh, who failed to secure the fruits of his murder, the Irish Throne, as he was executed by order of Laeghaire Lorc, the murdered Monarch's son, who became the 68th Monarch.
