The Lion Rampant - The Kingdom Series (Paperback)Robert Low (author)
- We can order this
The third book in Robert Low's stunning trilogy about the making of Scotland.
It is 1314. Robert the Bruce has reigned for eight hard years, driving out his English enemies with fire and sword. Lives have been shredded by war - wives, daughters and lovers slain or imprisoned. His men have lost almost everything.
But three great fortresses in the Kingdom remain under English rule: Roxburgh, Stirling and Edinburgh. Bruce must capture each stronghold after another to come face-to-face with Edward II, the English King humiliated by defeat and determined to put down his Scottish enemy once and for all. And the last great battle for the Scottish throne will be decided on a bloody field called Bannockburn.
