Description - Scottish Kingship, 1306-1488 by Michael Brown
The monarchy provided the Scots with a focus for their national identity and gave Scotland a recognised status in Europe. The fourteenth and fifteenth
centuries formed a new era for Scottish kingship, in which the crown and individual rulers achieved new status and faced fresh challenges to their authority and legitimacy. This collection of essays examines the role and exercise of kingship in a late medieval realm, with essays focusing on individual reigns or on particular themes.
