In the struggle for independence over the English, Robert the Bruce was the strategic and passionate patriot King of Scotland that grabbed his axe and fought against the English for the freedom of Scotland. Behind him marched thousands of Scottish patriots. He was the leader Scotland deserved and needed.
I wanted to make this documentary about King Robert I the Bruce of Scotland, because after the release of Mel Gibson's Braveheart movie, his name has been dramatically weakened as many took for a fact everything that was depicted in the movie. However, although it is a beautiful film about William Wallace, it is also highly suggestive and historically inacurrate at some points. For example, Wallace never invaded England and captured York. Also, most importantly, Robert never betrayed Wallace. Robert simply stayed quiet during his rebellion because he argued that political power and recognition from other Kingdoms was necissary to truly establish Scotland as a Kingdom again. Braveheart displays Robert as a weak, cowardice and flimsy charachter, when in history he was far from it. He was deeply intelligent, brave, patriotic, stern and solid. This was the man that truly led Scotland to victory. He deserves more honor and fame and its a shame that his name has been covered with dust.
