This miniature memorial piece is dedicated to the Guardian of Scotland, Sir William Wallace.
Born in either Ellerslie, Ayrshire or Elderslie, Renfrewshire around 1270, Wallace was from minor Scottish nobility stock, who became one of the main leaders during the wars of Scottish independence.
Along with Andrew Moray, Wallace defeated an English Army at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 and was then appointed Guardian of Scotland, serving until his defeat at the Battle of Falkirk in 1298. Following this, Wallace conducted a prolonged guerilla war against the English and also conducted diplomatic missions to the Royal Courts of Europe, until 1305 when Wallace was captured at Robroyston, near Glasgow . He was handed over to King Edward 1 of England who had Wallace tried and convicted of High Treason. Wallace denied all charges saying that he had never sworn allegiance to the English King. His execution was held on 23 August, when he was hung, drawn and quartered. His head was placed on London Bridge and his limbs displayed in Newcastle, Berwick, Stirling and Perth. To this day, Wallace is remembered as a patriot and National Hero.
