McDonald (The Kingdom of the Isles, p187) notes that a tombstone, inscribed "Here lies the body of Angusius, son of Lord Angusius MacDonald of Islay", is sometimes attributed to Angus Og but must refer to a later man. He cites Late medieval monumental sculpture in the West Highlands, by Bannerman and Steer. I think the stone must be the one pictured in The Clan Donald v1 p102-103, which is said there to be inscribed: Hic jacet corpus Angusii filii Domini Angusii Mac Domhnill de Ila. So, I've removed it from the article and placed it here.--Brianann MacAmhlaidh (talk) 09:51, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Could it be this Angus Og MacDonald (d.1615)? Regards Newm30 (talk) 20:07, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Mother's Identity[edit]

According to the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy, the only reference to Angus' mother is James Balfour Paul's Scots Peerage. You can see the mention on page 34 of Volume 5. As FMG notes, there is no primary source cited, hence the claim is suspect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iron0037 (talkcontribs) 02:22, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
