Battle of Bannockburn

  • "Braveheart" is a piece of true historical fiction

    This is false, since Isabella was 3 years old at the time of the Battle of Falkirk and Edward III was born 7 years after Wallace's execution.[5] The Battle of Stirling Bridge is renamed the Battle of Stirling and no bridge is depicted. See Argument 5 in Round 2: "Braveheart" removes the centerpiece of the battle: Stirling Bridge and renames the event "The Battle of Stirling." (which leads to confusion, since there was another, less renown engagement known as the Battle of Stirling). Gibson admits that he modeled his tactics on the Battle of Bannockburn.
