Braveheart name given to the 13th-century Scottish hero William Wallace (c.1270–1305) in the film Braveheart (1995), in which he is shown courageously fighting and dying for Scottish independence. Braveheart may now be used allusively to encapsulate a view of Scottish nationalism maintained against English oppression.
