Eochaid deposed the then-king of Connacht, Tinni mac Conri, and installed Medb in his place. However, Tinni regained a share of the throne when he and Medb later became lovers. Conchobar raped Medb after an assembly at Tara, and war ensued between the High King and Ulster. Tinni challenged Conchobar to single combat, and lost. Eochaid Dála of the Fir Domnann, who had been Tinni's rival for the kingship, protected the Connacht army as it retreated, and became Medb's next husband and king of Connacht. Medb demanded her husband satisfy her three criteria—that he be without fear, meanness, or jealousy. The last was particularly important, as she had many lovers. While married to Eochaid Dála, she took Ailill mac Máta, chief of her bodyguard, as her lover. Eochaid discovered the affair, challenged Ailill to single combat, and lost. Ailill then married Medb and became king of Connacht
I did a bit of research into your situation. A lot of slaying and intrigue going on there, I must say! Well I'm still a fairly good bodyguard, and quite expert at shining light into dark places. Perhaps I could be of service. Tell me more?
Oscar Wilde was repeatedly accused of plagiarism: hence the celebrated exchange with Whistler:
"I wish I'd said that, James."
"Don't worry, Oscar, you will."
Or, to cite another example:
“The key to making up Oscar Wilde quotes is to add '~ Oscar Wilde' at the end.
- Mark Twain
