The General I am Most Like

I don't care what anyone says, I like William Wallace!

William Wallace
You scored 64 Wisdom, 73 Tactics, 62 Guts, and 44 Ruthlessness!
Like William Wallace, chances are you have no problem charging a larger, better trained, better equipped, better armed and armored English army with a band of naked drunken Scotsmen. I'm not contesting that you have balls. It's your brain function I'm worried about.

Scottish soldier and national hero. The first historical record of Wallace's activities concerns the burning of Lanark by Wallace and 30 men in May, 1297, and the slaying of the English sheriff, one of those whom Edward I of England had installed in his attempt to make good his claim to overlordship of Scotland. After the burning of Lanark many joined Wallace's forces, and under his leadership a disciplined army was evolved. Wallace marched on Scone and met an English force of more than 50,000 before Stirling Castle in Sept., 1297. The English, trying to cross a narrow bridge over the Forth River, were killed as they crossed, and their army was routed. Wallace crossed the border and laid waste several counties in the North of England. In December he returned to Scotland and for a short time acted as guardian of the realm for the imprisoned king, John de Baliol . In July, 1298, Edward defeated Wallace and his army at Falkirk, and forced him to retreat northward. His prestige lost, Wallace went to France in 1299 to seek the aid of King Philip IV, and he possibly went on to Rome. He is heard of again fighting in Scotland in 1304, but there was a price on his head, and in 1305 he was captured by Sir John de Menteith. He was taken to London in Aug., 1305, declared guilty of treason, and executed. The best-known source for the life of Wallace is a long romantic poem attributed to Blind Harry, written in the 15th century.

  • I was more like his rival, King Edward I (I think that's who it was).

    Wallace was still a hell of a general.

  • Wallace is one of my personal heroes, and although it's historically inaccurate, Braveheart is my favorite movie.

    Where did you take this quiz?

  • This is interesting. I went to your link and took the test. By the way, you have to join to take the test and I felt rather silly, because it's a site for people to connect with other people, mainly for romance, I think, and as a happily married woman of 45 years I felt a little weird. But I took the test. Here are the results:

    I came out almost exactly the same as Daniel did and got Wallace also:

    61 Wisdom
    73 Tactics
    62 Guts
    44 Ruthlessness

    Great minds think alike! :)

  • Willem (not William) Wallace was totally the man.
