As I am never tired of telling, the Sinclairs had a strategy which
transcended national boundaries.
They also had a 'secret' which made Kings and Queens speak and write to
them in an almost
subservient way. How did they amass such wealth?. How did they acquire
such vast Estates?.
Where did the money come from to build Rosslyn Chapel ? Why was Prince
Henry chosen to
be the 'jarl' of Orkney when his two cousins (Alexander de Arde and Malise
Sperra) had an equal
or better claim because they were Scandinavian over whom the Norwegian King
could have exercised
some measure of control whilst Henry was the subject of the Scottish King -
albeit of Norse ancestry?
