Notes on Gaelic Title

Teachd a’ Phrionnsa gu Muideart Teachd a Phrionnsa gu Muideart / The Prince’s Landing at Moidart R. The coming of the Prince to Moidart. The word teachd does not specifically convey landing by sea, and Reid may have been influenced by the title Thàinig mo Rìgh-sa air tìr am Mùideart.

Thàinig mo Rìgh-sa air tìr am Mùideart Hanig mo Righs air tir ann Mudarchd C2. Thanic Mo Rhi er tir a Moidart D1; Thainig mo Righ sa air tir am Muideart / My King has landed in Muidart KB. My King has landed in Moidart. Two lines of verse are given below the music in KB: Thàinig mo Rìgh-sa air tìr am Mùideart, Righ na’n Gael Teàrlach Stùart (My King has landed in Moidart, the King of the Gaels, Charles Stuart).
