Udai Singh of Marwar

Udai Singh known by the sobriquet Mota Raja, was the Rathore ruler of Marwar, known as Jodhpur. After the death of his father Rao Maldeo on 7 November 1562 a fratricidal war for succession started and his younger brother Rao Chandra Sen crowned himself in the capital Jodhpur; however Chandrasen had no allies and all of his brothers and fellow rajput chieftains stood against him. Chandrasen was left isolated in the war with the Mughal empire. Akbar's army occupied Merta in the same year and the capital in 1564. After Chandrasens death in 1581, the Marwar kingdom was broken and given to several Rajput chieftains who had helped Mughals against Chandrasen; the Raja of Bikaner was made the governor of Marwar. Udai Singh gained the favour of the Emperor and was made the Raja of Marwar in 1583. Most of the core territories of Marwar were given back, while other districts were given to the rajas of Amber and Bikaner for their loyalty. Unlike his predecessors, Udai Singh joined in his service, he had his daughter Jagat Gosain married to the Mughal crown prince Jehangir.

He did not find the marriage to be degrading as Jehangir had Rajput blood in him from his mothers side. Historian Norman P. Ziegler relates two accounts of the death of Kalyandas Rathore; the version from the Rathore genealogy says Kalyandas took offence at Udai Singh giving his daughter, Jagat Gosain, to Jahangir in marriage, threatened to kill both men. According to Ziegler, if this is true, the most explanation for Kalyandas' opposition is that the marriage implied a subservience that violated the Rajput code of honor. In this version of events, when news of Kalyandas's threats reached Akbar, the emperor ordered Udai Singh to kill Kalyandas. Whatever the cause of the break between Kalyandas and the Mughals, he fled to fort Siwana. Udai Singh pursued him and captured the fort in 1589. Kalyandas died in the fighting. Udai Singh died in Lahore, Punjab on 10 July 1595, he was succeeded by his son Sur Singh. Marwar Sur Singh Jodhpur genealogy

Saint Serf

Saint Serf or Serbán is a saint of Scotland. Serf was venerated in western Fife, he is called the apostle of Orkney, with less historical plausibility. Saint Serf is connected with Saint Mungo's Church near Northumberland, his feast day is 1 July. David Hugh Farmer wrote that the legend of Serf is "a farrago of wild impossibilities" stating that Serf was the son of Eliud, King of Canaan, his wife Alphia, daughter of a King of Arabia. Childless for a long time, they at last had two sons: the second was Serf. Serf came to Rome, carrying with him such a reputation for sanctity that he was elected and served as Pope for seven years, he traveled to Britain after vacating the Holy See, returning to Scotland. There, he met Abbot of Iona, who showed him an island in Loch Leven. At the time, this island was part of the Pictish kingdom of Fib. Serf founded the eponymous St Serf's Inch Priory on the island, where he remained seven years; the priory was a community of Augustinian canons. It was founded from St. Andrews Cathedral Priory at the initiation of King David I of Scotland in 1150.

From the 15th century onwards the priory began to be referred to as "Portmoak". After more than four centuries of Augustinian monastic life, the Protestant king, James VI of Scotland, granted the priory to St Leonard's College, St Andrews. Today, there are only a small amount of remains left of the priory; the centre of his cult was Culross. At Dunning, in Strathearn, he is said to have slain a dragon with his pastoral staff. "Finally, after many miracles, after divine virtues, after founding many churches, having given his peace to the brethren, yielded up his spirit in his cell at Dunning, on the first day of the Kalends of July. Saint Serf is said to have been a contemporary of St. Mungo known as Saint Kentigern, though he could not have lived at the same time as both Adomnán and Mungo. A legend states that when the British princess Theneva became pregnant before marriage, her family threw her from a cliff, she survived the fall unharmed, was soon met by an unmanned boat. She knew she had no home to go to, so she boarded the boat.

Another legend states. The bird had been killed by some of his classmates. St. Serf is a common dedication for churches in Fife and Central Scotland; the name attaches to schools in the area. Kingdom of Fife Tourist Board Video footage of St Serf's at Dunning
