The Wars of Scotland 1214–1371

From the 1290s onwards, Scotland would be one of a number of smaller lands caught up in the rivalry of the greatest rulers of north-west Europe, the kings of England and their lords, the kings of France. Like Flanders, Aquitaine, and later Brittany, Scotland was one arena in this rivalry. The Scots' predicament in the face of internal and external threats and their responses to them were not without parallels in the actions of other communities in the west between 1280 and 1360. This chapter assesses the influence of such external factors on Scottish attitudes and experiences during the long crisis.
