How Belfast Got Its Name
Tour guide and local historian Jamesy steps into the past with a short video on how Belfast gets its name. And contrary to popular legend it’s got nothing to do with King Billy’s horse, who may have been fast enough, but wasn’t called Belle. The only horse of William’s that we know the name of was White Sorrel, which would be a stupid name for a town to be honest.
