Robert the Bruce
The youth of Robert I, King of Scots is described in this second of the Guardians series by Jack Whyte. As the heir to a great name and vast lands in both Scotland and England, the boy Robert Bruce is taught by his father and grandfather how to lead others in times of peace and war, and especially how to govern justly. Robert also learns from his mentor and hero, King Edward I of England, at whose court the young knight is trained in the art of chivalry. . . .
