Highlighting the rich political heritage of late medieval and early modern Scotland, this volume is a scholarly biography of the two kings who established medieval Scotland’s most famous and durable royal dynasty. Robert II, long regarded as a weak and ineffective king, pursued a determined political campaign that largely overcame initial political opposition. Robert III, on the other hand, was forced to engage in a long-term struggle with his own brother, Albany, for control of the kingdom. Anyone with an interest in the British monarchy and history will appreciate this book as it sheds light on regional lordships, the tensions between Gaelic-speaking and English-speaking areas, and the aspects of Anglo-Scottish relationships.
Stephen Boardman is a reader in Scottish history and the director of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of Edinburgh.
