The skillfully hand decorated theme chess set of Bannockburn pieces features many of the historic characters from the famous battle. The pieces are amazingly detailed...
The English are represented by Edward ll who reigned from 1284 until 1327 when he was deposed, imprisoned and horrifically killed at the behest of his wife, the Queen of England, Isabella of France.
The rook on both sides is the Tower of Old Stirling castle which overlooked the battle from it's site on top of an old volcanic rock. See in our image below how the bricks of the wall of the rook (or castle) actually get smaller as they reach the top which is authentic for the construction of the time - an amazing aspect of detail which really brings out the quality of the piece.
The Scots side is led by Robert the Bruce, or King Robert l who was famously heartened by the tenacious spider to persist in his struggle against the English. He is accompanied by his Queen Elizabeth de Burgh who was reunited with King Robert after being captured eight years earlier.
