Moe; King Edward The Longshanks wasn't as gracious and diplomatic as Elizabeth I. After the battle of Kildrummy he captured Nigel Bruce, The Countess Buchan Robert the Bruce's second wife, his daughter Marjorie, and his sister Mary the wife of Sir Neil Campbell. Edward executed Nigel by hanging. He was hung thirty feet higher than his entourage. As for the Countess Buchan and Mary he ordered wooden cages built jutting from the battlements of Berwick and Roxburgh castles respectively. His only concession was to allow them the use of the privies behind the walls. For the next four years these ladies endured their solitary confinement, and the exposure to passers-by. Marjorie was given a similar cage at the Tower of London, with the express condition the she speak to no one but the constable of the Tower. Because she was twelve the public was outraged and he recinded his orders sending her to a nunnery at Walton. My 411 is from "Robert the Bruce" by;Robert McNair Scott
