William Wallace

William Wallace
by Andrew Fisher

By no means prepared by birth, William Wallace nevertheless rose to prominence, leading Scottish forces to break the sequence of English victories, re-energizing and inspiring his countrymen in the process. While others, ostensibly his betters, yielded and collaborated, Wallace set an example of constancy and perseverance and became The Guardian of Scotland. Even his terrible death in London in 1305 can be seen as a victory—it inspired his countrymen to continue fighting against English domination.
