Bruce, Robert (I), King of Scotland (1272-1329). Robert Bruce, Earl of Carrick, seized the throne of Scotland from the absent King John Balliol in 1306 (becoming Robert I), assassinated his political rival, Comyn of Badenoch, and reopened the war with England. Though initially militarily inept, Bruce learned quickly from his mistakes and, after the death of Edward I in 1307, was able to attack his enemies within Scotland. There was apparently no end to the tactics he was willing to employ in order to force recognition of his independent kingship: scorched earth, the ‘fiery cross’, taking castles by infiltration and levelling them to prevent regarrisoning, the use of Gaelic mercenaries, chevauchées into the north of England, the opening of a second front in Ireland (and potentially in Wales also), the development of the offensive schiltrom—all played their part. Blessed also with reliable commanders in his brother Edward, in James ‘the Black’ Douglas, and in Thomas Randolph, later Earl of Moray, the Bruce had largely gained control of his kingdom by 1309. At Bannockburn in 1314 he successfully engaged Bohun in single combat in front of the armies and then destroyed the incompetently led English. Despite this, Edward II refused to acknowledge the Bruce's kingship and the war continued, marred by Edward Bruce's disastrous campaign in Ireland (1315-18). The Bruce finally obtained English recognition during the chaos following the deposition and murder of Edward II. He died in 1329 and had asked that his heart be buried in the Holy Land, and while on this mission the Black Douglas was killed fighting the Moors in Spain. Legend has it that he threw the casket containing his old leader's heart into the enemy ranks, bidding the Bruce to lead him into battle one last time.
