Anyone in Braveheart

I Always Wonder If Edred Was Related to Anyone in Braveheart

My favorite movie of all time was by far and away Braveheart, the 1994 Mel Gibson epic history pic about Scottish rebel William Wallace. I always wonder when I see it if King Edred was an ancestor of King Edward the Longshanks.

I’m familiar with Edred since our family geneology says he’s a relative of ours. Yet, I’ve never bothered actually looking it up, even though the question floats through my mind every time I watch the movie. It’s kind of a running joke with my wife, and I kind of don’t want to spoil it.
