He was appointed Guardian of Scotland and served until his defeat at the Battle of Falkirk in July 1298. In August 1305, Wallace was captured in Robroyston, near Glasgow, and handed over to King Edward I of England, who had him hanged, drawn and quartered for high treason and crimes against English civilians.Since his death, Wallace has obtained an iconic status far beyond his homeland. He is the protagonist of Blind Harry's 15th-century epic poem The Wallace and the subject of literary works by Sir Walter Scott and Jane Porter, and of the Academy Award-winning film Braveheart. He was first cousin to Roger de Kirkpatrick. Roger himself was a third cousin to Robert the Bruce.BackgroundPolitical crisis in ScotlandSilent years prior to the Wars of IndependenceStart of the uprisingBattle of Stirling BridgeBattle of FalkirkCapture and executionHistoriography of WallaceIn popular cultureSee alsoNotesReferencesExternal linksLast edited 7 days ago by Hippo43 RELATED ARTICLES Battle of Stirling Bridge battle of the First War of Scottish Independence Battle of Falkirk Battle of the First War of Scottish Independence Barns of Ayr English military barracks located at Ayr, Scotland WikipediaContent is available under CC BY-SA 3.0 unless otherwise noted.

  • Stirling was first declared a royal burgh by King David in the 12th century, with later charters reaffirmed by subsequent monarchs. A ferry, and later bridge, on the River Forth at Stirling brought wealth and strategic influence, as did its tidal port at Riverside.[56] Major battles during the Wars of Scottish Independence took place at the Stirling Bridge in 1297 and at the nearby village of Bannockburn in 1314 involving William Wallace and Robert the Bruce respectively. After the battle of Stirling Bridge, Wallace wrote to the Hanseatic leaders of Lübeck and Hamburg to encourage trade between Scottish ports (like Stirling) and these German cities.[57] There were also several Sieges of Stirling Castle in the conflict, notably in 1304.[58]
