Hayden Yeager English 12 Hayden Yeager Byrd E-12-1 April 8, 2014 Robert I Robert I was a king who fought many battles against the English. Robert the  Bruce was a leader and he was very important in history because he won his battles  and was very intelligent in the tactics that he used to win most of them. Robert I was not only smart but very much a great leader and he had to work for everything he had ever  received or became because he had to. Robert may had been born into royalty, but  when it was his time to shine he had to show that he was brave, courageous, and  strong enough both mentally and physically to win battles for his people. Robert I or Robert the Bruce, was born in 1274, and became King of Scotland in  1306. He belonged to the illustrious Bruce family and was the grandson of that Robert  the Bruce who in 1290 was an unsuccessful claimant to the Scottish throne. He became Earl of Carrick and on his father’s death (1304) assumed the leadership of Annandale  and of the Bruce lands in England. In 1296, Robert swore fealty to Edward I of England,  but the following year he joined the struggle for the National Independence. He had to  start out in a rough situation do to the fact of his assumption as leader because of his  father’s death but was up for that challenge. (King of Scotland, Robert I)

On March 25, 1306, Robert the Bruce was chosen to be King of Scots. A few  weeks before his coronation, Robert killed his greatest rival for the crown (his joint  guardians) in a Dumfries church, during the last of many arguments between them. For  this murder, Robert was outlawed by Edward I and ex-communicated by Pope  Clements. His reign did not begin very well. He was defeated by the English at Methven

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
