Fact from yesterday...

On this day in 1460 James II of Scotland was killed during the siege of Roxburgh Castle. The King was attacking the castle of his favourite enemy the Earl of Douglas when he filled a cannon with too much gun powder. The cannon exploded and killed him instantly.

This is a bit earlier than my Clan Gunn novel, but I still find this history interesting.
