This week – 26-29 July 1296

While on progress through the kingdom of Scotland, Edward I stayed at Elgin in Moray where Robert, bishop of Glasgow, Alexander, earl of Menteith, and several other Scots performed fealty to him as their liege-lord in his presence. These documents are recorded in the so-called Ragman Roll, a notarial instrument containing the names of more than 1,500 Scots who performed fealty to Edward I after their defeat at the battle of Dunbar in April 1296.
