I don't believe there is any evidence that William Wallace ever slept with the princess and fathered a King of England.
"Pure religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." (James 1:27)

as far as i know the princess in question was only a baby at the time. so fairly unlikely. braveheart was ok as a movie but definetley not historical in many ways. but if watched as a comedy i think it works.

I liked BraveHeart, lots of swords. It really was a shame that Gibson's accent didnt sound real.. Well, I know it ISNT real, but it couldve been better. And a little connection to Lord of The Rings,William Wallaces buddy (forgot his name)looks a bit like a very tall Gimli doesnt he?

Angry braveheart

I cannot believe that so many people like this film. COmplete and utter sentimental crap, it twists the facts to fit Hollywood's formulas, resulting in a disgusting historical travesty. If you know even a bit about Scotland and its past you can only be repulsed by such a sugar-coated Disney-fied confection aimed at the lowest levels of taste and education. BAH!!

PS Mel Gibson can't act, has a crap accent and not even a kilt can save him!

free Scotland!!
