Mongfhinn

Irish - Sister of Criomhthann. Second wife of Eochaid Muigl. She abandoned her step-son Niall as a baby and tried several times to kill him when he was a boy. When her husband died, her brother Criomhthann took the throne but her four sons took over while he was away and divided the kingdom between themselves. When Criomhthann returned, she gave him a poisoned drink but she was forced to share it and died with her brother. At times, referred to as Mongfhinn, Mongfhind or Mongfhind.
