Tabards were worn over chainmail to protect the metal from the elements such as the blistering heat of the sun and rust inducing rain. They were also worn to display the wearer’s coat of arms or affiliations so that they could be easily identified on the battlefield and in tournaments. Our Robert the Bruce Tabard is handcrafted from 100% cotton and features the rampant lion of Scotland embroidered on the front. The sides are left open so that it can accommodate pretty much any size of wearer. It is usually worn with a belt which is not supplied – but there are plenty to choose from in our “Belts” category. Great for LARP or fancy dress!

Product Description

Details

Robert the Bruce was King of Scots from 1306 until his death in 1329. He was one of the most famous warriors of his generation and eventually led the Scottish army to victory against the English in the Scottish Wars of Independence. He fought successfully during his reign to regain Scotland's place as an independent nation and is today remembered in Scotland as a national hero. When he died in 1329 and his body was buried in Dunfermline Abbey and his heart was placed in a silver casket and taken on the crusade by his lieutenant and friend, Sir James Douglas – as was his dying wish. Douglas was killed fighting the Moors in Spain, but not before he launched the casket into the thick of the battle. The casket was found after the battle and was returned to Scotland to be interred at Melrose Abbey.
