At the close of the 14th century, Scotland was plunged into chaos. With the new king ailing and weak, his younger brother, the Earl of Fife, as unscrupulous as he was ambitious, seized his chance to become Regent and Governor of the realm. Sent to London to appease the English King, Richard II, George the Cospatrick, 10th Earl of Dunbar and March, struck up a lasting friendship with Richard II's cousin, who was to become King Henry IV of England. On Henry's succession to the throne, Robert III's wife, Queen Annabella, asked Earl Cospatrick to use his influence with the English king in order to avert civil war. And so it was that Cospatrick found himself seeking help from the Auld Enemy to right affairs in Scotland.About the Author:
