The Scottish Civil War of 1644–5 can be seen as a struggle between two men: James Graham, 1st Marquess of Montrose, and Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquess of Argyll. Both considered themselves loyal subjects of Charles I and Charles II; and both, betrayed by their king, died on the scaffold. This history explores their contrasting personalities – the brave, rash Montrose and the cautious, opaque Campbell – and their crucial roles in Scotland's turbulent history.
