The Brodie Clan, also known as Clan Brodie, is a Scottish clan with origins dating back to the 12th century. The clan takes its name from the Brodie lands in Moray, located in the northeastern part of Scotland. The Brodies were originally vassals of the Thanes of Moray and later became powerful landowners in the area.
The clan’s most notable figure is Alexander Brodie, who served as the Lord Lyon King of Arms from 1727 to 1754. The Brodies were known for their loyalty to the Crown and fought alongside other Scottish clans in various conflicts, including the Jacobite uprisings of the 18th century.
Today, the Brodie Clan is still active and holds a seat on the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs. The clan is known for its connection to Brodie Castle, a historic stronghold located in Moray, which has been the ancestral home of the Brodies since the 16th century.
