Alan Wallace was fighting the English. Alan Wallace

Alan , after being involved
in several skirmishes with the English over the years and his son William
was a full- .William Wallace’s
father was not killed by the English when Wallace was a child but he was very
much alive when William Wallace was fighting the English. Alan Wallace was a Scottish knight and noble and
not a “commoner with his own lands” as the movie suggest. Wallace’s family is
shown as a poor peasant family who were killed when Wallace was just a boy but
this is again false William Wallace’s father, Alan Wallace was the real name of
Wallace’s father as stated in The Lübeck letter and the Ragman Rolls, not
Malcolm as the film portrays            In the film William Wallace origins
are completely false

which happened 11 years earlier in
the film. The nobles recognized that they didn’t have army to opposed Edward I
had he decide to invade Scotland instead the nobles after extensive
deliberation finally agreed to recognized Edward’s over lordship. King Edward
I  then finally awarded the Scottish
crown to John de Baliol. John de Baliol quickly found out that he had no real power and
was essentially a puppet king of the English. He soon revolted against King
Edward I. In
response Edward I launched his armies to Scotland and in 1296 defeated the
Scottish army in the Battle of Dunbar which resulted in English occupation of
the Scottish Lowlands. Edward I demanded the full surrendered of John De Baliol and the
kingdom of Scotland. John De Baliol, king of Scotland renounced his kingdom over to Edward. It wasn’t
until 1296, 16 years after the beginning of the film 1280, when Edward “claimed
the throne of Scotland for himself”. Also, another mistake in the film was that
King Edward I did not invite the Scottish nobles for “talks of truce” that was
presented in the film but he presented himself as arbitrator between the
Scottish nobles that took place in 1292, twelve years after the film beginning
took place.
