About Robert the Bruce
Robert the Bruce (Robert I) was King of Scotland from 1306 until 1329.
He was one of the most famous warriors of his generation and he led his country during the Wars of Scottish Independence against England. He dedicated his life to regain Scotland's place as an independent nation and he is now remembered as a national hero.
His Personal Life
He was married twice with Isabella of Mar and Elizabeth de Burgh. He had 11 children, 5 with his 2 wives and 6 by unknown mothers. A large number of Scottish and British families are descended from him.
During the winter of 1306–07, he hid in a cave on Rathlin Island in Ireland, where he observed a spider spinning a web, trying to make a connection from one area of the roof to another. The spider failed twice, but tried again and succeeded. The story serves to illustrate the famous quote: "if at first you don't succeed, try try try again".
