    About William Wallace And The Movie Brave Heart..? What part of the movie is untrue?
    .
    .
    Oh wait…. but the beginning of the movie says
    History is written by those who hanged the heroes.
    I am actually watching the movie right now.

    • Curator says:

      Pretty much everything.

      The movie’s TITLE is misleading… traditionally, ‘Braveheart’ was a nickname used to refer to Robert the Bruce, not Wallace.

      The movie opens with a caption telling us that, in 1280, Scotland’s king had died without heir. In fact, Alexander III of Scotland lived on until 1286.

      The ‘Scots’ of the movie bear no relation to actual medieval Scots.
      The custom of painting the face with woad dates from the time of the Roman conquest – a thousand years before Wallace’s time.
      The ‘belted plaids’ (large kilts worn over the shoulder) date from the late 1500’s, more than 300 years after the movie is set.

      The actual costume of the medieval Scots was the ‘Lang Liene’ – a long linen shirt, like a nightshirt. It’s long hem was worn hitched up and tucked through the belt.
      The Lang Liene was traditionally dyed with saffron – it’s other common name was the ‘saffron shirt’.
      The new garment of a wealthy man would have been bright orange, and the washed-out or cheaply dyed garments of the commoners would have been a pale peach colour.
      Basically – they looked like bearded Hare Krishnas.

      The line: ‘playing outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes’ refers to the suppression of Highland culture which took place after the Jacobite rebellions of the 1700’s – five hundred years after Wallace.

      Wallace himself is portrayed as being of noble ancestry, but basically a ‘man of the people’, raised as a common farmer.
      The truth is that what little we know for sure all points to him always having been a member of the minor nobility – accompanied by servants, for example.

      Crucially, the movie changes his cultural origin from Lowland Scots, and makes him a Highlander.

      Wallace was not the first to rebel. There were minor, local rebellions going on across the country when Wallace became involved.
      He was involved in a dispute at a local court, and ended up having to flee from arrest. He returned later with armed men and killed the High Sheriff.
      There was no ‘murdered sweetheart’ involved. That version comes from a fifteenth century folk tale.

      Now an outlaw, he joined the Sir William Douglas’s forces. Douglas was involved in a rebellion along with several other Scots nobles.
      However, this rebellion just fizzled out when the nobles who led it made peace with England, leaving Wallace and Andrew Moray alone with the remnants of the army.
      The movie skips that whole sequence of events.

      The ‘Battle of Stirling’ shown in the movie is very fictionalized. In fact it was the Battle of Stirling BRIDGE.
      The rebels waited for a portion of the English forces to cross the bridge, then attacked, wiping out those who’d crossed while the others stood helplessly on the other bank.
      A large percentage of those killed were not English at all, but Welsh archers. The movie, with its fictionalized message of ‘Celtic’ unity, would never have shown that.
      There is a famous anecdote about Mel Gibson scouting locations for the film, and looking at the bridge.
      “We can’t use that”, he said. “It’s too narrow”.
      His guide said: “Aye… that’s what the English found.”

      Piers Gaveston is shown in the film as Prince Edward’s gay lover and murdered by King Edward I.
      In fact, he was chosen by Edward I – impressed with his military achievements – as a mentor to the prince. He outlived Edward and was captured and executed by rival nobles during an (English) power struggle in 1312.

      What else… y’know, there’s just too much.
      I mean, Robert the Bruce wasn’t even AT the battle of Falkirk, where the movie shows him betraying Wallace.
      (In fact Wallace escaped that defeat, and sailed to France to try and get King Philip IV to join the war.) Again, the movie ignores that whole sequence of events.

      Isabella of France was only ten years old at the time of Wallace’s death… and she did not even arrive in England until two years later.
      Her son, the future Edward III, is shown in the film as Wallace’s child. In fact, he was born 7 years after Wallace’s execution.

      Really… I could go on ’til the word-limit kicks in.

      Basically, the movie is a cracking medieval adventure – but it’s almost total fiction from start to finish.

      Hope that helps!

    In A Good Vs Evil Plot Of A Movie. Who Would You Like To See Go At It? Use people that either never faced eachother before or who never stared in a movie before. You can use more then one pairing.

    Me I would like to see Denzel Washington and Samuel L Jackson go at it with Denzel Washington being the bad guy

    I would also like to see Jet li and Tony Jaa go at it with Jet li being the bad guy

    And for my last one. I would like to see Gerald butler and Liem Nesson go at with Liem as the bad guy.

    Now who would you like to see go at it in film?
