Abstract

The 'Continuation' of Nicholas Trevet is a West Country chronicle for the period 1307-18, compiled by the mid-fourteenth century. It contains an important account of Edward Bruce's invasion of Ireland which has never previously been used by historians. In it, it is claimed that Bruce intended to make himself king not just of Ireland but of the Isles, and that he wrote letters to that effect to the Irish before launching his invasion. It has a remarkable list of twenty-nine of his adherents who allegedly fell with him at Fochart. As an appendix to this article, the relevant extracts from the earlier surviving manuscript are printed for the first time.
