Scottish King Robert I, known as Robert the Bruce. Though he had sworn allegiance to Edward I of England in 1296, a year later he switched sides, fighting for Scotland's independence. He was crowned King of Scots at Scone in 1306, though Scotland had not yet achieved independence. Making slow inroads, Bruce's victory at the Battle of Bannockburn (1314) was a major stride in achieving his goal. In May 1328, England's King Edward III recognized Scotland's independence and Bruce as its king.
