Jacobite History est. 2010

The members of Jacobite History est. 2010 form a German-based re-enactment group with performers from Germany, Ireland, Belgium, England, Scotland and France. It is very important to us to present an authentic portrayal of the Gaelic culture from 18th century Scotland.
Our focus is on the unique culture of the Scottish Gaels, whose life, after the Battle of Culloden, was subject to a dramatic change imposed by the Royal House of Hanover. The culture of the Scottish Highland clans has always been passed on by oral tradition and is reflected in stories and songs. To keep alive all these beautiful things is our aim.


Although our group is named Jacobite History est. 2010, we do not portray Jacobites as such, we simply portray the way of life in Scotland, Ireland and England during the Jacobite era.



Royal Écossois

Highland soldiers in French service


In our military portrayal we reenact the grenadiers of the regiment Royal Écossois, also known as "La compagnie des grenadiers du régiment Royal Écossois". The time frame covers the years from 1744--1762.






A Lochaber Clan

Highland Gentry, Lowland Scots, Irish and English Jacobites


In our civilian portrayal we reenact Highland gentry, simply described as low nobility connected by blood to a clan chief, Scots from the Lowlands and Jacobites from Ireland and England. The time frame covers the years from 1725--1762.
