Full Episode

Everybody knows the story of William Wallace's battle against the English, but what many people don't know is that he then went on to fight a brutal war against the English occupation of Ireland. After Braveheart reveals the untold story of how a Scottish army tried to drive the English out of Ireland 700 years ago. Scotland’s king Robert Bruce remained uneasy about the threat of a renewed English invasion and decided the best form of defence was attack. He chose to invade Ireland and make his brother, Edward, king there and force the hated English back into their homeland.
