The new Guardians of Scotland

Following the victory at Stirling Bridge in 1298, the Scottish nobles appointed Wallace and Moray as 'Guardians of Scotland'.

They became official commanders of the Scottish army and would rule Scotland on behalf of King John.

Moray was not Guardian for long as he died a few weeks later of wounds received at Stirling Bridge.

Wallace continued to rule Scotland by invading northern England, besieging castles and towns.
