The Exile of the Sons of Uisliu (5 of 8)

Publication Date: May 21, 2010

Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages

Conchobor really has the most roundabout way of assassinating Derdriu's husband ever. It makes no sense given that he's, you know, the king. Instead of simply killing the Brothers Uisliu, he sets up ridiculously dangerous tasks for them to do. I suppose the idea is that he'd make their deaths look like an accident, but the brothers all come through unscathed. Only after trying to murder them the pointlessly indirect way several times does he finally say "screw it" and just sends a bunch of guys to take the brothers out.

Spoiler alert, but that finally does the trick. As in life, the direct approach is usually the most successful.

Year: c. 8th Century • Info: Celtic Literature Collective
