This miniature memorial piece is dedicated to King Robert 1st of Scotland.
Born on the 11th July 1274 at Turnberry Castle, Ayrshire, Robert became King of Scots from 1306. Robert was a patriotic warrior King, eventually leading the Scots during the wars of independence against England. He fought successfully during his reign, culminating in the famous Battle of Bannockburn in June 1314, where he defeated the English Army to pave the way for Scotland to once again become an independant nation.
Robert died at his home in Cardross on 7th June 1329. His body was buried in Dunfermline Abbey while his heart was later interred at Melrose Abbey. On his deathbed, Robert gave his dying wish “I will that as soone as I am trespassed out of this worlde that ye take my hart owte of my body and embawme it, and take of my treasoure as ye shall thynke sufficient for that enterprise, both for yourself and suche companie as ye wyll take with you and present my hart to the Holy Sepulchre where as our Lorde laye, seying as my body can nat come there” Bruce’s friend, Sir James Douglas promised to take the Kings heart on a crusade but he only reached Moorish Granada. Douglas was killed and the casket containing the embalmed heart were found upon the field and conveyed back to Scotland.
