Iarbonel, the high chieftain, mated with Danu (Gaea), and sired Nuada, The Dagda, Ogma, Leir (the younger son), Badb, Macha, Morrigan, and Ériu; the first generation of Celtic gods.
While living Tír na nÓg, in the dimension of Otherworld, his sons ruled at least two of the four cities inhabited by Tuatha de Danaan: The Dagda ruled Murias, and Nuada ruled Finias.
Upon Iarbonel's death, Nuada took leadership of the Tuatha, and they left their cities, to travel through an interdimensional nexus to Earth in approximately 1896 BC.
