The Irish divinity Aengus Mac Óg lived at the Brú na Bóinne in the Boyne River Valley but he was landless before he acquired this property and had had to trick his father An Dagda ["The Dagda"] out of it in order to acquire any inheritance from the latter in the first place at all. Aengus was an illegitimate son of An Dagda, born of another man's wife, and when he came of age he arrived at his father's home at the Brú to find that An Dagda had finished distributing his land among his children, with nothing for Aengus. Is there a reason that Aengus was singled out like this? Because he was illegitimate? (But An Dagda surely had other illegitimate offspring besides him, didn't he?) Or was there a requirement for the recipient of the land to be present at the time of its bequeathal? Or some other reason altogether?
