Sinclairs and the battle of Bannockburn
Recently I have been reading the book The Lion in the North One
Thousand Years of Scotland's History by John Prebble. On Page 98 the author
states the following about the Battle of Bannockburn:
Though he [King Edward II of England] had healed the quarrel with his
lords, with the help of the Pope and by the birth of a son, three great earls
only had come with him [to Scotland to find Scots King Robert the Bruce]:
Humphrey de Bohun of Hereford, Gilbert de Clare of Gloucester [He was killed
during the battle.] and of course Aymer de Valence of Pembroke.
Please, does anyone know if Gilbert de Clare was a Sinclair?
