The British Isles found themselves torn to pieces by war, and a new legend rose out of Scotland. Born William Wallace, this twenty-something warrior rose to prominence by showing undying commitment to the cause of independence. A natural leader and a tall in stature, Wallace became the face of resistance to England’s Edward I and revealed a penchant for brute force and violence.
