This clan held extensive lands in the Western Isles and mainland of the Highlands. They claim descent from Gillean of the Battle Axe, who lived during the reign of King Alexander III. The MacLeans followed the MacDonalds, Lords of the Isles, and fought at the Battle of Harlaw in 1411. They became powerful, but declined in influence in the 16th century. They were Royalists and supported the Royal Stuarts. In 1632 Lachlan MacLean of Morven was created a Baronet. At the Battle of Inverkeithing seven MacLeans, all brothers, died trying to protect their chief. As each fell he called, "Another for Hector".
