Best Answer

The McDonald's and the McCann's were the two biggest factions. A number of loyal highland followers also fought, but were either not part of a clan by this point, or there presence was not big enough to justified. It is estimated that more Scots fought against Bonny Prince Charlie, than fought for him. All of those who did were of course called Jacobites and wanted to restore Jamie Stuart to the throne of Great Britain. Which as history tells us, never succeeded.

Why did England disband the Scottish Clans?

Disbanding the ClansThe reason for trying to destroy the clan structure was to break up the political basis for Jacobite rebellion against rule of the Hanoverians. Here is more input:By 1746, the United Kingdom was Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland (the Scots having never been conquered by England, and the English asked the Scots to join the political/economic/trading union in 1707. Therefore the BRITISH (which included Scots both Highland and Lowland) brought laws to attack the Highlanders way of life. One can say it WAS an overreaction, but the Protestant Scots and British did not want any more Catholic rebellions against Protestant Royals.The above answer is spot on. ENGLAND didn't disband the Clans, the BRITISH Government did.
