The Scots signed an alliance with the French to protect themselves from Edward I. Edward I punished Scotland by invading and defeating the Scots at Berwick and Dunbar. Edward I stripped King John, known as the Toom Tabard, of his kingship. He then went on to humiliate Scotland by forcing the submission of 1,900 nobles. In 1291 they were forced to sign the Ragman Rolls.
