On June 24th 1314 Robert the Bruce defeated the English army under King Edward at the battle of Bannockburn. The war dragged on until the peace treaty was signed in 1328 recognising Bruce as King Robert I and Scotland as an independent Kingdom. The Battle of Bannockburn was fought over the course of two days on June 23-24, 1314.
