Andrew Moray (La: Andreas de Moravia), (died c. September 1297),

Andrew Moray (La: Andreas de Moravia), (died c. September 1297), also known as Andrew de Moray or Andrew of Moray, or simply Andrew Murray, was the son of a northern nobleman, who became an important military and political leader during the Anglo-Scottish conflict of the late 1290s, commonly become known as the Scottish Wars of Independence. He was responsible for leading the rising in northern Scotland in the summer of 1297 against the rule of King Edward I of England, successfully regaining control of this area for Scotland’s king, King John. Moray later merged his forces with those of William Wallace and jointly led the combined army to victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge, where he was mortally wounded. for more click here
