Niall 'Noígíallach' (; Old Irish "having nine hostages"), or Niall of the Nine Hostages, was a semi-mythical Irish king who was the ancestor of the Uí Néill dynasties that dominated the northern half of Ireland, reigning from the 6th to the 10th centuries. Irish annalistic and chronicle sources place his reign in the late 4th and early 5th centuries, although modern scholars, through critical study of the annals, date him about half a century later. He is presumed by some to have been a real person, or at the very least semi-historical but most of the information about him that has come down to us is regarded as legendary.
