Gordon Tartan & Clan

The Gordon family became involved in a deadly battle for power between the King and the Douglases. During this time the Douglases burned Huntly castle and devastated the Gordon lands but the Gordon's didn't give up and soon defeated their enemies. Following the fall of the Douglases, the power of Gordon clan grew as they were no longer challenged and they soon had almost regal control over their land.
