King and Outlaw

With equal parts tenacity and ruthlessness, Robert the Bruce had himself crowned King of Scotland after murdering one of his most powerful rivals. An indomitable military genius unafraid of breaking convention, his inspired leadership at Bannockburn saw a tiny Scottish force beat a large, supposedly more sophisticated English one, thus ensuring Scotland’s independence. Chris Brown explores the life of Robert the Bruce, separating history from legend, and brings to the fore the real story of the outlaw king.
