Jacobite History est. 2010

The members of Jacobite History est. 2010 form a German-based re-enactment group with performers from Germany, Ireland, France and Scotland. 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.
