Explain the reasons why Balliol failed as King? You will be completing the first question independently; try to use your own knowledge (without looking in your jotter) as much as possible! For the second, work with a partner to decipher the puzzle. First pair finished – correctly – wins a prize
Explain the reasons why Balliol failed as King… John Balliol had accepted Edward I as his overlord. John Balliol had been bullied by King Edward e.g. orders, legal decisions overturned. John Balliol refused King Edward’s order to join him in a war against France John Balliol withdrew his homage to King Edward John Balliol had made an alliance with the King of France against Edward i.e. treason King Edward defeated John Balliol at Dunbar King Edward forced John Balliol to surrender to him King Edward had stripped John Balliol of his crown and title Not all the Scots supported Balliol in his campaign against King Edward. E.g. Bruce Plockton High School

Balliol agreed to pay homage to King Edward Balliol agreed that Edward was Overlord of Scotland Balliol was descended from the eldest daughter of Earl of Huntingdon Balliol was nearest heir of Margaret, Maid of Norway Several Scots nobles felt they should be King; there was fear of civil war. Plockton High School
Source C is an extract from a textbook published in 2003. John Balliol’s final humiliation happened when King Edward publicly stripped him of his title. Consequently, John Balliol is often described as “toom tabard”. In fact, he did not get this nickname until after his final defeat. The Bruces, who never supported him, encouraged the idea that Balliol had never been fit to be a king. Even before his final defeat, the Scottish nobles had appointed twelve men to force Balliol to stand up to King Edward. They realised that by himself Balliol was unable to stop Edward interfering in the government of Scotland. Assess the usefulness of Source C as evidence of why Balliol failed as King of Scots. (5)
