In 1571, the Clan Irvine joined forces with the Clan Gordon in their feud against Clan Forbes. This feud had gone on for centuries and culminated with two full scale battles: The Battle of Tillieangus and the Battle of Craibstone. Clan Leslie and Clan Seton joined the Gordons and Irvines. Clan Keith, Clan Fraser, and Clan Crichton joined Clan Forbes. It should be remembered that the monstrous 5th laird of Drum had married the daughter of Lord Forbes. She was disrespected and mistreated by her Irvine husband. The feud may have begun then. During this clan war it must have been difficult for Elizabeth Keith who was the Irvine Laird's wife.
