In 1314, Edward II brought the biggest army of invasion ever seen into Scotland, to crush the rebellious Scots once and for all. The need to bring the Scots to heel was an obsession of the Plantagenets, and one that remained unfulfilled.

"Scots, wha hae wi‘ Wallace bled, Scots, wham Bruce has aften led, Welcome to your gory bed, Or to Victorie!
Now’s the day, and now’s the hour; See the front o’ battle lour; See approach proud Edward’s power- Chains and Slaverie!"
