Lady Grainne inghean Ui Neill (formerly Gráinne MacCleud) is a 13th century traveling Celt, who also went by Grainne of East Land a 12 Century Celtic Midwife.

I started playing in 2002/AS 37 in Shire Caer Adamant, moved to Barony of Iron Bog, then to Middle Kingdom from 2010/AS 45 to 2017/AS 52. I returned to The East Kingdom and now reside in the Barony of Settmour Swamp.


Lady Gráinne was born in 1230 to parents that were merchants on the Silk Road. She is now learning the merchant trade from her father and was absorbed into a household of mercenaries, so any profits have been "reinvested" into the mercenary operation. She is the youngest sister to many siblings in Clan MacLeod. She has been learning the culture of Turkish, Ottoman and Persian merchants and using it to her advantage.
