Brief introduction of ebooks
Robert the Bruce: King of the Scots


This fascinating new biography of the great Scottish hero focuses on his Kingship in the fifteen years that followed his triumphant victory at Bannockburn.
Abstract
Robert the Bruce (1274-1329) was the famous unifier of Scotland and defeater of the English at Bannockburn - the legendary hero responsible for Scottish independence. Michael Penman retells the story of Robert's rise - his part in William Wallace's revolt against Edward I, his seizing of the Scottish throne after murdering his great rival John Comyn, his excommunication, and devastating battles against an enemy Scottish coalition - climaxing in his victory over Edward II's forces in June 1314. He then draws attention to the second part of the king's life after the victory that made his name. Penman investigates Robert's resettlement of lands and offices, the development of Scotland's parliaments, his handling of plots to overthrow him, and his cultivation of an image of kingship through the use of ceremony and symbol.
