The long and fascinating history of the Scottish people is celebrated with this stunning set of intricately detailed chessmen.

A nation closely associated with strength, courage and development, Scotland has survived many significant events in its history. From the building of Hadrian’s Wall across Northern England during the Roman occupation of Britain, to the Norman conquest of 1066, Scotland has always thrived and endured.

When Edward III agreed to recognise Scotland’s independence in 1328, James IV married the daughter of Henry VII of England, and the Stuart era of Scottish sovereignty commenced in England. The two nations of Scotland and England were finally united in 1707 with an act of union forming the kingdom of Great Britain.

The most iconic figures of Scotland’s amazing history have been commemorated in these intricately detailed pieces, with the characters and symbols as follows:

King: King Robert the Bruce
Queen: Mary Queen of Scots
Bishop: John Knox
Knight: Sir William Wallace
Rook: Scottish Tower House
Pawn: Scottish Thistle
