The Egyptian and Spanish Legend of the Irish and the Scots… Princess Scotia

There are many stories surrounding the ancient origins of the Celtic Irish, including the story that Eastern European Celts went through Egypt and Spain before arriving at “Ireland.” The story goes that during their travels, one of the Celtic chieftains fell in love with the Egyptian princess Scotia and because of this, for centuries the Celtic Irish were called Scots, hence the name of Scotia for the island. Some Scots from Scotia settled in Caledonia (Scotland) and so part of Scotland was called Scotland or Scotia. So Ireland ceased using the name Scotia. The ancient Celts were tall and had light-colored hair, especially red. They practiced Druidism as their Pagan religion.
