slide3
King Hob – King Nobody
  • He had just committed murder in a church!
  • No Stone of Destiny – used to crown Scottish Kings since this was in England with Ed 1st.
  • All Scottish Nobles were supposed to attend – but there were only a few.
  • He only had a simple crown, as the Scottish Crown Jewels had been taken by Ed 1st.
  • All Scottish Bishops were supposed to be there. Bruce had only bishops of Glasgow and St Andrews.
  • He was supposed to be crowned by the Earl of Fife- he refused so his daughter did it.
  • Lack of trust – Look how many times he had switched sides between English and Scotland!
slide4
He does manage to capture some castles in Dumfries and Galloway. But things get worse for Bruce and his supporters in 1306
  • The Pope excommunicated him. This means he has no international support and is not recognised as being the king.
  • Edward 1st sends an army up which does a surprise attack at Methven wiping out most of his supporters.
  • His brothers are killed. His daughter and wife are captured and hung in cages outside castles by the English.
  • He is not safe in Scotland due to the friends and family of the Comyns and has to flee.
  • The English put troops in Ayrshire so his supporters are unable to go to him.
  • He does not have much support from the Scots to enable him to be king.
slide5
Defeat
  • Bruce had little support and many intended to depose him. He suffered a number of setbacks in his first few months as king.
  • At Methven Wood in June, 1306, Bruce was defeated by an English force and suffered heavy losses.
  • At Dalry in July, 1306, Bruce’s remaining supporters were virtually wiped out by the Scottish noble, John MacDougall (a supporter of John Comyn).
  • In the autumn of 1306, his brother, Neil Bruce was beheaded. His wife, sisters and daughter were placed under house arrest. One sister and the Countess of Buchan were imprisoned in cages.
  • Bruce, who fled from the Scottish mainland, gained the nickname 'King Hob' at this point in his reign – he was the ‘King of Nobody’. It is not known exactly where he went, although he probably spent the winter on an island off the west coast.
