So Robert the Bruce came out of hiding. He led an army which defeated other Scottish rivals, and defeated a larger English army at Bannockburn. And Robert the Bruce became Robert I, King of Scotland - successful on his seventh try!

Robert the Bruce died in the year 1329. But Robert's close friend, James Douglas, took his heart from Robert's dead body. Douglas took the heart with him on the Crusades to the Holy Land. Douglas' journey to the Holy Land was by way of Spain, then held by the Moors. Douglas died in the Battle of Teba. Douglas' body, and Robert's heart, were found on the battlefield.

Douglas' entire body and Robert's heart were returned to, and buried in, Scotland. Robert's heart, being carried into battle, was thereafter known as the Brave Heart.
