Sir William Wallace was a Scottish knight and one of the main leaders in the Wars of Scottish Independence. In September 1297 he defeated the English army at the Battle of Stirling Bridge. After the battle he was appointed Guardian of Scotland and served until he was defeated at the Battle of Falkirk in 1298. He continued to fight for Scottish independence until he was captured in 1305 executed in London for crimes of High Treason. In death his exploits passed into legend. Sir Walter Scott wrote about him in “Exploits and Death of William Wallace – the “Hero of Scotland”.
