David Sellar

Author

David Sellar (1942–2019) taught in the Edinburgh University Law School for some 40 years prior to appointment as Lord Lyon King of Arms in 2008. He maintained a steady stream of significant publications on the medieval history of the Highlands and Islands, with a particular interest not only in what could be learned from clan genealogies of the period, but also in the region’s literary culture and material remains such as Sueno’s Stone. Retiring as Lyon in 2014, he was awarded Membership of the Royal Victorian Order, a dynastic order of knighthood awarded at the monarch’s sole discretion for distinguished personal service.
