No Twitter tale about the Battle of the Clontarf would be complete without #BrianBoru.

However fact and fiction have merged over a 1000 years of storytelling about this famous man, whose name now has worldwide recognition, and even fronts a vodka bottle or two.

In the video below Elva Johnston, a historian from University College Dublin, teases out some of the facts…

The video is the first in a two-part History Hub series on the Battle of Clontarf, funded by UCD School of History and Archives. The video is a Real Smart Media production for History Hub.

If you’re looking for fictional accounts of Brian Boru, well, that’s a whole other blog post… ;)
