Warrior Society

In Celtic myths, the Celts tend divided their people by clans and by social classes. Even in history, according to classical Roman writers, the Celts were divided into several distinctions.

High among the social class were the nobles, such as kings and chiefs. They belonged to warrior societies. The warriors were followers of the aristocrats. Other group or classes were the druids and the bards. The druids and bards were men of learning and were held in high regard.

 


 

Here in Timeless Myths, the Warrior Society provided description of Celtic characters. These characters may be heroes and heroines, or rulers, druids or bards. The Celtic deities can be found in the Otherworld.

Note that any ruler — whether they are a king or queen, ruler of a province or the entire Ireland — these character can be found under High Kings.

Please take the time in reading the notes in this page.
