Robert Daniel Rohan

Lord Robert Daniel Rohan

The story of the brothers, Robert and Daniel Rohan, is one of sadness and despair, at least that’s the way Daniel, more commonly known as “The Fishmonger” puts it. He sells more tickets that way. Both were born on a fine Spring day in 1550, so the story goes, in Dunoon, Scotland to the merchant Ferghus Rohan. Robert preceded his brother into the world by approximately 5 minutes, (reportedly because after failing to strangle his brother in the womb by garroting him with his own umbilical cord, he saw fit to attempt to shove his way out by using the top of his brother’s head to provide leverage. Daniel claims that one can still feel his brother’s footprint in the top of his head, and will allow spectators to check for themselves after a show for a penny.)
