Which Movies Got the Facts Wrong?

Braveheart 1 of 16

Mel Gibson delivered a moving performance in the 1995 film 'Braveheart,' but the film is littered with errors in Scottish history.

'Braveheart' Fiction:

  • A war begins in 1276 in this film when there were no wars in Scotland until 1296.
  • Many of the characters wear kilts in the film, while kilts were not invented until several years later.
  • Robert the Bruce never betrayed Mel Gibson's character Wallace.
  • Isabella of France was 3 years old at the time these events took place and could not have had an affair with Wallace.
