Glin, an estate which once encompassed more than 30,000 acres, was granted to this branch of the Fitz Gerald family in the early 14th century by their overlord at the time, the Fitz Gerald Earl of Desmond.Unlike their ill-fated overlords, the Knights of Glin survived both the Elizabethan conquest of Ireland and the Cromwellian and Jacobite wars, even though they were invariably on the losing side.His father, the 28th Knight of Glin, was a keen fisherman and driver of vintage sports cars, for which he was known locally as “the Nippy Knight”.His English mother, Veronica Villiers, was a considerable beauty and a cousin of Winston Churchill.Other colourful ancestors include “The Cracked Knight”, who is said to have ridden his horse up the back stairs; “The Big Knight”, who took solace in the whiskey bottle; and “The Knight of the Women”, who was reputed to have fathered at least 15 illegitimate children, but was forgiven because he was a Gaelic scholar (and native speaker) revered by the local people.But Desmond Fitz Gerald would refer to the “general improvidence” of his ancestors.
Legend has it that his mother seized his severed head and drank his blood before gathering his body parts for burial.
In the Jacobite wars of the 17th century another Knight was told that if he did not surrender, then his six-year-old son (who had been kidnapped and tied to a cannon) would be blown to bits.
He replied that as he was virile and his wife was strong, it would be easy to produce another son.
