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.
