[1280-1318] – Irish monarch, King of Ireland
Donal O'Neill and the other Lords invited Edward Bruce to Ireland in 1315. Edward was the brother of Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland. Together they had successfully defeated the English at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 and attained Independence for Scotland. Territory taken by Edward the Bruce. In 1315 Edward was the Earl of Carrick, in Galloway, Scotland, and had thousands of unemployed soldiers in his domain. His ambitions needed an outlet, and another fight against the English seemed like the thing to do. Edward accepted, and on May 25th 1315 landed at Larne Harbor with the largest force to ever hit the island. Six thousand battle-hardened veterans clad in mail offloaded from the ships. Large numbers of light Irish infantry soon joined them and the Battles began in earnest. [Edward the Bruce http://www.irishclans.com/articles/edwardbruce.html]

Along with some portrait commissions, he began painting "mother and child" groups, semiclassical in nature, for which his wife and children served as models.
