    Edinburgh: King of Scotland

    Posted on by

    The history of Edinburgh is long and bloody. At its very early stages in the 7th century, it was a hill fort called Din Eidyn (Din means Fort). By the 12th century, the enormous castle for which it is known was constructed and it has been the capital since at least the 15th. Similar to Ireland and Wales, there have been many battles and switching of power between Scotland and England.
