History Summarized: Scotland


In researching this video I very quickly learned a valuable lesson about how little the Scots mess around. “Okay”, I thought “the Scots in the English hate each other, sure, but it can’t be THAT bad, honestly.” So I took a little peruse to see how many times the two actually fought each other and SWEET MOTHER MARY! That is a lot of stabbing! Scotland…who hurt you? Trick question. England! So be warned, the Scots throughout history are every bit as bonkers as they come across on Twitter. To find out why, let’s do some history *In Scottish accent* This video is brought to you by audible, which is a wee bit Ironic see’en as the Scottish language is damn near IN-audible. Around 2,000 years ago, Scotland was inhabited by various tribes of Pictish Celts living up north herding and minding their own business. So when the Roman Empire swaggered up to try and conquer them They gave those Romans a walloping so bad that Emperor Hadrian built a wall just to make sure that nobody ever tried to conquer them, again. Essentially…*Random man* “I just don’t think you can do this one.” *Hadrian* “I’ve been an assassin for a while now. What makes you think-Oooh, get that sh*t outta here, you’re right!” So even though these original Celts weren’t anything like modern Scots It is refreshing to see the national character demonstrated so well at such an early stage. Rome eventually collapsed, but Europe reintroduced itself to Scotland via Christianity and Anglo-Saxon migrations. Which coalesced through the seventh century into a few main groups. For our purposes the most relevant two are the Picts and the Scoti where we get the name Scotia, aka Scotland. In 843, Kenneth MacAlpin united the Scots and Picts in order to create the Kingdom of Alba. The early kingdom had to deal with the Vikings and the English in the 8 and 9 hundreds as land from every corner was getting yoinked. But beyond outside threats there were also constant internal fisticuffs over the crown. The quintessential example of the early Scottish King is Macbeth, whom hereafter shall be referred to Exclusively as Macboy because that play is haunted and I’m not looking for trouble. Trouble is…nearly everything you might know about him from Shakespeare is wrong. Here’s why. See, the Scottish crown didn’t follow a strict succession But claimants came to debate who was best fit to rule, and this caused constant disputes that escalated into wars. So, Macboy actually killed King Duncan in a battle in the year 1040 and ruled for the next 17 years peacefully, generously and successfully. In 1057 he died in another battle against Duncan’s son Malcolm Kenmore who then assumed the throne. All that stuff about murder conspiracies got added by Scottish historian centuries later, but civil wars over the throne were already a matter of protocol since the kingdom had gotten started. Macboy’s real-life path was actually quite standard. But speaking of wonky royal succession crises, the next decade brought the Norman conquest of England and William the Conqueror’s second son Henry married King Malcolm’s daughter. The family relations are confusing now and they stay that way for the next thousand years So, I’m gonna try to avoid specifics where I can for the sake of my sanity, but the bottom line is that the King of Scotland exchanged notes with his sister, the Queen of England, about culture and statecraft. So, in the following two centuries, Scotland picked up some Norman tricks, like a central bureaucracy, a church hierarchy and a curious new language derived from the Norman French, called Scots The native Gaelic was still the dominant language in the highlands, especially but the lowlands trended slowly towards the customs of their anglicized southern neighbors. The eleven and twelve hundreds saw a steady back and forth between Scotland and England along the borders in Northumbria But not a whole lot of drama. Until, however, the king of Scotlands died in 1286 without a clear heir and rather than have all 13 possible cousins duke it out the old-fashioned way, they called in the English King to mediate the dispute, which…I don’t know seems like…kind of a short-sighted and terrible idea. Unsurprisingly, King Edward installed the weakest, most pliable puppet who would let him treat Scotland like a vassal state, and when even that pushover got fed up with forfeiting Scottish land, paying tribute and kneeling to English superiority, King Edward invaded Scotlands, dethroned the king and yoinked the Scottish coronation stone back to Westminster, dragging Scotland firmly under the English heel. This was frankly terrible so the Scots duly rebelled against England under the command of the famous William Wallace, who won a victory the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 but lost horrendously at Falkirk the next year and was later executed by England and paraded around Scotland in pieces. Quick fun fact: Of the many, many reasons that the movie Braveheart sucks The blue war paint that everybody’s wearing is about a thousand years out of style for the Scots I mean, come on, that kind of anachronism is like dressing the cast of The Godfather in togas. It was after Wallace died that Robert the Bruce took up the mantle of guardian of Scotland. He had to kill a rival claimants to earn his title but he also earned an excommunication from the Pope because apparently murdering somebody in a church is “impolite” and “a mortal sin.” *Dismissive noise* Whatever. He was defeated early by Edward and 1306 and went into hiding for a year before returning to win the battle of Loudoun Hill. From there, he stomped out local rivalries and united Scotland fully against the English at the decisive Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. though Though, the treaties weren’t signed for another 15 years, Robert the Bruce won Scotland three centuries of independence in that battle. Quick OSPro-tip Skip Braveheart, but watch the Outlaw King. It’s better and way more accurate. So having fulfilled his dreams for his kingdom Robert died the next year, but this was exceptionally poor timing and really unfortunate in the long run because the throne passed to a series of useless kings from the House of Stuart for the next several decades. Through the thirteen and fourteen hundreds, Scotland had no real leadership. So, the local Lords started throwing hands, or more accurately, Glamis. In this case, the warring states were actually the dozens of clans scattered across the lowlands and highlands. Mercifully, England had just gotten sucked into the Hundred Years War with France, so Scotland was free to be its own antagonist, the way God intended. And although the Stuart clan still held the crown other families like the Douglas clan were regularly challenging them for land and power. Some progress came with King James the First in 1406, who sent twelve thousand Scotsman to fight with France against England in the Hundred Years War Winning big and returning home in a strong position to consolidate many of the clans under his crown and reformed the Kingdom Unfortunately, he got assassinated and it was right back to the seesawing balance of power between kings regents, lords, and clans. Even after James, the Highlanders still largely spoke Gaelic and paid little heed to the culture or politics of the anglicized royal court in lowlands. The king could say whatever he wants down in Edinburgh, but unless he personally marches up to Inverness to tell Clan Fraser, in person, to pay their taxes It’s not gonna happen and one king even tried that, but still nothing happened. It’s just all very Game of Thrones-y for a couple centuries and, I mean heck, it’s at this time that the War of the Roses is raging on just down the street. And you know what? Since it’s just a big mess anyway, I’m gonna speed round through the next 300 years. So, bear with me and let’s get ready for a game of *air horns sounding* Monarchy is Volatile! Let’s meet our players. One king was really cool and helped reform the government to work for more of Scotland while making Edinburgh into a renaissance-capital of learning and Culture. One queen got the short end of the stick when Scotland’s Parliament voted to convert to Protestantism while she was on vacation in France. And then she got the shorter end of the stick when England imprisoned her for two decades and then executed her. Her son played his cards just right and inherited the throne of England from his cousin, the childless Elizabeth, and then became King of England and Scotland. His son was so inconceivably bad at being King, that his abuses of power brought England and Scotland into open rebellion for entirely separate reasons, and his reign ended with the British Isles locked in twelve years of civil war before everybody called a do-over and gave the Crown back to his son. One king became king because Parliament literally invited him from the Netherlands to replace their current monarch and then he proceeded to strangle Scottish trading rights. And the last Queen on our list tried to be a pal by offering Scotland a National Union with England’s to open up trade avenues in exchange for the bargain price of nearly all of their sovereignty. I had originally gone WAY in depth about how all of this stuff went down in my first draft But then I realized…you know what? Royal politics is dumb and confusing and I kind of hate it more than anything else in history. So I’m gonna skip through it Yeah So I did. One standout event from the mid 1500s is when the King of England tried to drive a wedge between a long-standing alliance between Scotland and France, in the hopes to endear Scotland to their southern English neighbors. They did this by pillaging the lowlands and burning Edinburgh to the ground. You may find that this is a bad way to make new friends. The Scots came to call the seven-year campaign the “Rough Wooing” as they did not appreciate being bullied into love. And this sentiment persisted for centuries, way up until the Act of Union in 1707. Scotland was suspicious of the Queen’s offer of Partnership and while they’d get one metric British Empire out of the deal in the long run, the immediate result was England deciding they now had a constitutional right to treat Scotland like a colony. *Forboding horns play* As you can see, this is kind of a recurring problem and it led to two revolts for Scottish independence in 1715 and in 1745. Both failed, but the second one spooked England into being slightly less despicable about everything. In the next century and a half following the rebellions, things turned remarkably for the better as the Enlightenment came north. Writers like Walter Scott and Robert Burns helped rekindle the Scottish identity. And thinkers like Adam Smith and David Hume radically changed European perspectives on rational thought in economics. Hume claims that reason was the core of human thought and Smith described the benefits of letting people act in their own self-interest. This all sounds very profound, but don’t be fooled. The clear Scottish subtext to these ideas are “The English don’t make a damn lick of sense” and “We’d be better off making our own decisions.” And you can’t expect a Scottish enlightenment thinker to NOT bury snide comments at England under two tons of hard academic theory. Though Scotland had long been an educational powerhouse, in the following two centuries they also became the industrial heart of the British Empire Producing such famous doodads as the steam engine, the telephone, radar, a mechanical television and also most of the ships in the Imperial Royal Navy. Nice. Other happy beneficiaries of the 18th and 19th centuries were the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh Which built up substantially in the Georgian neoclassical style, and it just looked really damn pretty. Funny thing about the Edinburgh Castle is instead of firing off 12 cannon shots to mark the passing of noon like the English do they just wait one hour and save 11 rounds. That is… so Scottish. Quickly approaching the modern day, now, Scottish attitudes towards the Union grew more suspicious as England seems to care less and less by the decade about what happened up north and the hard forged British identity faded with time and the decline of the British Empire. After years of campaigning Skotland gained greater autonomy and the right to hold their own Parliament in 1999. And the first words spoken there were -quote- “the Scottish Parliament, adjourned on the 25th of March 1707 is hereby reconvened” and if that is not some big *bagpipes start playing* Scotland energy right there, *Scottish accent begins* then wrap me in a tartan plaid and throw me in Loch Ness because I dunnae I know what is. *Bagpipes and accent end* Now, if you want to jump into the tumultuous world of medieval Scottish murder Kings then you’ve got to go for Shakespeare’s Macbeth and one of the best ways to do that is with today’s sponsor Audible.

  • Blue: Spends two weeks researching, writing, and producing a video about Scottish History
    Also Blue: USES THE WRONG FUCKING FLAG
    Rest assured, everybody, I'm veritably mortified by how badly I messed that up.
    -B

  • Where I’m from if you tried that accent we would think you were Eastern European, you sound like you’re from a vampire film

  • best wee country in the fuckin world. end of story no debate.

  • I am simple Scottish man, I see video about Scotland

    I watch

  • fuck the English cunts

  • here comes the highland granny…great big tits and a hairy fanny…bring back our true national anthom!please✊

  • "And sent them homewards tae think again" 👊👊 Scottish not British 👊👊

  • "Things got better after the 45 rebellion", aye accept the genocide, forced deportation of 50% of the highland population and banning of Scottish traditions. also, James VI was an arse (look it up).

  • Small thing, it’s Inverness not Inverniss. Also please do Ireland next

  • More like the Romans we coming to try and kill the chosen ones and God wouldn't permit it, so the Romans were forced to build a wall to prove they couldn't and didn't conquer Scotland or at that time the chosen ones, refer to the declaration of arbroath for that missing little fact!!! Then you'll make more views and have better and stronger content for the argument of the Scots!! Or as we will be referred to soon enough the once lost tribes of Israel!!

  • Great video! The bit on Hume was a tad misleading though. Hume actually was not a philosophical rationalist who believed that reason was the core of human thought. He was an empiricist who believed that all thought arose out of sense experience. (I'm grossly oversimplifying). Anyway, if you are ever interested in doing a series on philosophy and need someone with a solid background to help do research, please contact me!

  • Sooner rather than later Scotland will be Independent!

  • So no mention of brexit, the 2014 Independence referendum or a possible new one? AM SO DISAPPOINTED.

    Though this video was very enlightening.

  • royal politics is the very best kind of history. The story of the poor is the same and monotonous in all centuries and in all places. They were poor, ignorant and the suffered and died young.

  • As a Scot, the Scottish accent was so horribly laughable 😂😂 also fun fact about Robert the Bruce, his body was split into different pieces and spread across churches including my hometown which is an ancient capital (his body is buried in my local abbey)

  • The union jack is not the England flag

  • AYYYYY SCOTLAND'!!

  • I'm Scottish, and I ngl your Scottish accent wasnt too bad but definitely needs work aha

  • At least get the flag right. You're using the UK flag which has the Scottish flag in it. The English flag is the St. George's cross.

  • I used to think the clearly-American voice actor who narrated the Age of Empires II William Wallace campaign had the worst Scottish accent of all time. You learn something new every day 😂

  • That was the worst Scottish accent I've ever heard please stop you're embarrassing us

  • As a scotsman i appreciate this severe boost to my patriot ego. Can also confirm we are every bit, if not more nuts in person and we do not give a single fuck about anything

  • you keep saying the clan names wrong and place names and it's not game of thronsy, game of thrones is a Europy.

    Also us Scots don't hate the English we hate the corrupt government that has blatantly treated us as slaves throughout history. you also missed the massive thing called the highland "clearances". You'd also do well to note that our of all the borders in Europe the longest standing one is the one between Scotland and England

  • We sent them home ta think again 💪😀

  • not gonna lie us Scots still fucking hate the English 😂 still treat us like cunts lmao. Honestly I’d rather be up here and have good patter than fucking become uppity. Everyone of my friends who went down there to study comes back too big for their boots 😂 might just have bad friends though lmao

  • Americans talking about Scottish history is horrifying.

  • That accent. Lol. You tried.

  • Few things:

    The Celtic clan system extends to Ireland the Scottish-Irish relationship is fundamentally important for the culture and nature of interanl conflicts in Scotland and Ireland for the following centuries. William of Orange who defeated Scottish king James II in Battle of the Boyne went on to basically be THE symbol of Unionism and continues to shape sectarianism in the isles to this day and if you want a modern representation of that, the Orange Walk still occurs every year. The Celtic connection between Scotland and Ireland is undeniably important to the history and the identity of the nation. For example kilts originaly came from Ireland, both are whisky countries, both speak a version of gaelic and although one of them is literally divided by loyalty to the crown the other is politically divided by it.

  • thanks for murdering the scottish accent ya BARM

  • – is half scottish

  • Fuck William, orange protestant bastard

  • And of course there was the Escape of Robert Maxwell, 5th Earl of Nithsdale, from the Tower of London, and also can’t forget about Scotland’s best scientist James Clark Maxwell.

  • Good video but come on how did you mispronounce Inverness literally everybody knows about Loch Ness

  • 2:30 aaah, the rare Russian Scot has appeared

  • Never touch the accent again. There's several of them but none of them are German.

  • Hiya mate the Jacobite rebellions weren’t for Scottish independence also you missed the rebellions of 1689 and 1719, a lot of people think the Jacobites wanted independence even though they only wanted a scottish king back on the throne

  • You forgot the bit where rich Arabs bought 3/4 of Scottish lands and the Scottish people who protected it got nothing.

  • Seeing as you cant understand us when we speak like we do day to day, ill speak as bastard as possible and ask you not to attempt any scottish accent on video again

  • 5:25 you spelled it wrong its STEWART not STUART. ffs my own mothers maiden name

  • Damn straight we don't fuck around… I mean there was so much money and power in the slave trade… We practically owned it.

    This is a joke. A JOKE… Also everyone hates England it wasnt just us that had a lot of fights with them…

  • Props to the borders they're pretty accurate throughout, except for Berwick-upon-tweed which was under Scottish control until only a few years ago. In fact when Edward installed that puppet king and then decided to invade, there was a famous massacre at Berwick to prove to the Scots that they weren't messing around

  • The Jacobite rebellion wasn't a Scottish revolt, it was only Scottish jacobites that revolted, but there were English jacobites as well. In fact there were more scots fighting against the jacobites than for

  • More Scottish history please!

  • Ok so we killed Mary queen of Scots because she was plotting to kill our queen

  • 5:12. So basically the intro to Highlander yeah?

    5:30 in the end there can be only one

  • Well done mate, you even pronounced Glasgow correctly, which is one of my North American bug bears…

    Really nicely put and kudos on the Braveheart = absolute baws and Outlaw King = Absolute dugs baws 😀 (Which is good btw). Nice to see something on here about my country that has more than just a ring of truth to it.

    You should do more on Scotland, after all, we're pretty cool 😀

    10/10 Would watch again.

  • 2:52 “A language derived from Norman French called Scots.” Nope, Scots, like English, is a Germanic language derived from Anglo-Saxon albeit with heavy Norse and French influences in vocabulary and grammar.

  • Good video, TERRIBLE accent. You should do a follow up video for when we're actually independent in 2 years time ;)))

  • Fuck the Union🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  • Being Scottish and still living in Scotland. I thought OK I'll watch this and see what I've missed in the history of my homeland. Less than two minutes in you have the Romans building Hadrians wall because they couldn't defat us. WRONG the Romans led 3 Campaigns into Scotland they had marching camps by Stonehaven called Raedykes this is on the NorthEast Coast of Scotland, they came through Stracathro to Peterculter Aberdeen (home of North Sea Oil) where their marching camp was called Normandykes. They eventually ended up at Cawdor beside Nairn and a few miles from Inverness. There is also a wall built by the Emperor Antonine which is further into Scotland than Hadrian's wall.
    I CAN"T believe you skipped over the last Battle in the History of the United Kingdom ! This is like you omitting to mention the American Civil War !! The Jacobite rebellion was all about putting a Catholic King who happened to be Scottish back onto the throne in England. The Battle of Culloden Moor on April 16th 1746 was more of a slaughterhouse than an actual battle between two armies. The Scottish soldiers had been marching for days to Inverness from Derby 460 miles. They had little or nothing to eat, very little sleep. All in all a tired exhausted bedraggled army of men and boys. On the day of the battle it lasted less than 40 minutes and left 20,000 men and boys dead, injured and dying. The Battle equitte was that women and healers were permitted onto the battle field at the end to tend to those who required it. The Duke of Cumberland earned the name that's fallen from many millions of Scottish lips for what he did. He flatly refused to allow anyone to be given medical aid. No one was permitted to tend to the wounded. The dead and injured stayed there until every last one died. Cumberland became better known as The Butcher Cumberland. As if defeating the Jacobite army wasn't enough speaking gaelic was banned, highland dress of tartan showing which clan you belonged to was banned, Clans were not permitted to meet. They the English government did their damnedest to stamp out the Highland way of life. People wonder the why of that Scottish people still get angry about the battle, only have to learn the way the Scottish were treated.
    The Duke of Cumberland on his way to Inverness stayed for around 6 weeks in Aberdeen at Provest Skene's House which is now a museum. From here he went North through Oldmeldrum. From McDuff the army crossed the River Devron in to Banff where one of the soldiers spotted MY Great Great Uncle x6 generations a young Herdie (herdsman) who was illiterate and had taken the cattle down to the pastures by the river. He marked (whittled) a stick with a notch for each cow in his care. his name was Alexander Kinnaird (Sandy) He stood transfixed watching the Redcoats and this strange party arriving. He failed to spot a soldier who approached him. On seeing the stick with 12 marks cut into it and the very fact they had commandeered 12 boats to cross over. The soldier took Sandy to the Duke of Cumberland who decided the Alexander Kinnaird of Culvie Mardoch living in Banff was a Jacobite spy and had him hanged as such. He really was just a poor Herdie caring for cattle. I can tell this story as one of my relatives commissioned a Pedigree so there were researchers who went and found all the family members made extensive family trees, not just of family members but those who married into it. There are over 20 different families and stories about how they all tie in with each other. This was all done on my mothers side of the family. It was commissioned and finally printed in 1896. The line to which I can trace my Great great Uncle x6 and his sister my Great great Grandmother x6 has been through the female line. In the male line some of my relatives were the Hall's of Hall Russell Shipbuilders a well known shipbuilder in Aberdeen. The Pedigree lists my Great Grandmother, I've got separate papers that I've added my Grandmother and Mother, along with my 3 older brothers and all the children and grandchildren they have.
